Cute Boys Clothing is Hard to Come By
Having a boy and being someone who loves clothes aren't the most compatible couplings. Boys clothing can be just so boring! Luckily, i both sew and love Etsy where others sew. As i also don't shop at the big box and brand stores, i have to both watch my non-working budget (hello, adorable boutique and indie clothing makers!) as well as finding items that are not stereotypical boys motifs. I'm not someone who believes that boys innately like trucks and sports, so we'll see what this next year brings to my little Clem..
Of course, i will be the first to admit that i will be encouraging things that i like, such as birds, garden stuff, lots of colours, bikes, and dancing. Most importantly, i just want him to discover stuff on his own, instead of me feeling like he's push by his parents to like them because we think he should. Now, if only i could get others in his life to see that too! Boys are more than cars and soccer, ya know.
I think i will be making this cute playsuit for each of the 4 sizes offered in the pattern, made by Oliver + S. So far, i have 2 of them. Here's his wee one, something he is growing out of quickly as he's already 11.7+ and just a week 7 weeks old! I am already compiling other cute patterns but if anyone has a favourite pattern or store to recommend, please do so!
