i bought a whole bunch of footy pajamas but she turned out like me and hates having stuff on her feet while she sleeps, its a shame too, they are so cute.

Someone new coming August!
When she was new new born we didn't cosleep (because I had not yet discovered it's awesomeness), but it was in the heat of August. She wore a diaper, onesie, socks and a t-shirt and we'd swaddle her with two blankets.
She's never slept with covers even after she outgrew swaddling (in 2 weeks, maybe?). I never really think to put a blanket on her, she'd just kick it off anyway.
Gowns never worked for us. She would just kick and kick and kick trying to get comfortable in them. Footie pajamas work much better. Zip-up ones are easier for middle of the night diaper changes. Trying to line up snaps in the dark, half asleep, is near impossible.
They also have footless pajama varieties. It's nice sometimes to let the piggies out. Especially if you co-sleep in the summer.
Also, mittens were essential for sleep in the first three months. Otherwise, she'd get really distracted by her hands. If her onesie/pajamas didn't have mittens on the sleeves, I would put socks over her hands.
