Boys wear

For a friend of mine who had a tiny baby boy recently, I finished these yesterday. They match a jumpsuit I made last week -but forgot to take a photo of before I put it in the mail :(
Isn't it interesting how our perception of masculin or feminin is connected to colors? The clothes I made for my daughter were by the same patterns, but look indefinitely more 'girlish' to me. Same as, when I dress my girl in blue and green (which I love) people invariably conclude she must be a boy!

Yours is even cuter than the original pattern :)

Thanks Holly, as I always keep fussing to improve my patterns little by little, I'm glad that you like the boy's version too :)))
