Boy clothes are either blue, green, brown or black. You’ll find stripes, but not dots, solids and few prints. It’s sad after having a girl. Girl clothes have interest. Visual and textured.
My little boy wants to wear his sister’s clothes… for no other reason, I believe, than they’re cuter. I’m guessing he loves the fabric, the simple designs, and maybe the fact that I made them- I swear by that part.
In light of that, and because baby brother likes cats, I made cropped pants for him from this fabric that I bought a couple of months ago. As I was cutting, my little girl asked if there was enough fabric to make a pair for her, too. Of course!
So, they got matching pants. I think it’s adorable.
I was talking to my mom and she said that my sister, with her two boys, is also frustrated by the lack of t-shirts that don’t have a superhero on them. She doesn’t want all the paraphernalia and tries to get the older one (especially) in clothes that don’t have a whole lot of stuff she finds inappropriate.
I’m lucky to have the parents and in-laws I have. Neither side of the family is into having the kids wear clothing that fits the stereotype. Now, I just need to set up a wish list on my favorite online fabric store so they can buy clothes for the kids via fabric… I know it’s not the same for some but bilingual baby is into fabric stores- but that’s what she knows. She gets a fat quarter every once in a while and comes home to play cutting.
Enjoy the photos. In them, they are cuddling, doing tai chi (that’s what bilingual baby told me they were doing), balancing, and running in circles.
