    I just made up a couple tops and pants for my 10 month old boy AND pants and skirt for my 3 year old daughter. I LOVE this pattern for both! I actually worried that the pants would be too masculine for my daughter when I sewed them in blue twill. The top is so perfect in a nice interlock, or thick jersey. It is stretchy enough that you don’t really need to use the buttons to get it over their head. I had some fun with contrasts in the facings and the pants are ADORABLE with the little side vents, but comfortable and easy to fit with the elastic in the back. I will try and get some pics up soon, but I really love this pattern for boys and girls. Same with the tea party dress/playsuit. I feel like I can get so much use out of those two patterns for all of my kids!!

    I know what you mean, Nicole, he is “pretty” in a boy way. 🙂 And very cool. Maybe you Aussies have More of a European sensibility than we do? My husband wears all kinds of stuff most American men wouldn’t dream of. He’s English.

    The littleSailboat top I made for my nephew has just landed on the other side of the world and they sent me an email saying no way would it go over his head!

    I’ve only ever had to undo one or maximum two of the buttons to get the ones I made over my daughter’s head so though tthe redesign with buttons on only one shoulder would work. Seems not….

    …. although I have emailed my brother and gently asked if he’s tried undoing the press studs. 🙂

    Yep they did and no way was it going on. The top had to be regifted to another kid with a normal sized noggin. Would pay to measure your kids head if you’re going to try the single opening modification.

    I think it’s great for boys, but I also tend to dresses my guys in more of a French/European style that I suppose some might feel is too girly. I think it’s just a matter of preference, when they are young I’d rather dress them like that then as little men.

    I’ve made it in denim for the spring (which may never get here. Sigh)

    The denim versions sounds great but you needn’t worry about Spring lagging, it will get to you soon. I used the Sailboat top pattern as the tops for N’s Cat in the hat costume. I doubt he would fit it now though as he has gone past a size 8. It is a nice style both boys and girls.

    Sosew,I have seen them made as full length trousers.

    Over tidy boots they would look awesome on boys.

    My girlfriend just finished the top for her 4 year old daughter, but it was too small… so she put it on her 2 year old son and loves it on him! 🙂

    I made this version while pregnant, not knowing if I was having a boy or girl. It is 6-12 months, and I plan to pair it with something “boyish” on top.

    I like to have fun with prints for boys for as long as I can get away with it– they grow up so quickly!

    Purlknitpurl, LOVE it! Never thought to use a big print that way.
