Wearing back to front?

    I’ve made the playtime tunic and I love the shape. I’m wondering if there would be any fit or fall problems if it was worn back to front, with the buttons down the front, so they don’t dig in when baby falls asleep in the pram? Thanks (ps haven’t hemmed it yet as I’m going to do another measure before Christmas)

    I know a number of the kids I sew for often end up wearing clothes I’ve made them back to front and it dose not seem to bother them. But I have not made this dress/tunic.

    My eldest preferred hers with buttons at the front.

    Rather than wearing it back to front, I’d move the closure to the front.
    The front neckline will be a bit lower than the back, and in some patterns the armhole I shaped differently.
    Add the placket allowances to the front bodice and remove them from the back. Cut two of the front bodice and cut the back bodice on the fold.
    Hope that helps.
