So last year, I did Boy Romper: Cars and Trucks from the McCalls Pattern M6309. I loved it so much that I did a second one for another one of my friends.
My favorite part about this version was the Dungaree buttons. I found them in my stash and I have no idea where they came from, but I thought they were perfect for the little outfit.
And as usual, I made some bibs to go with it. No matter what I make, I always make coordinating bibs... it's kind of my thing.
The one trick to this was that they didn't know the sex of the baby and so I had to make an outfit that was unisex. I tried to find some neutral fabric, which I thought I did a good job at but afterward doubted myself. No matter how hard I try, I always see either boy or girl when I look at a fabric not both. Technically also, the pattern was a boy pattern but I thought overalls where fairly gender neutral.
As cute as it turned out, in the end, all I could see was "boy", which is kind of lucky because they had a boy!
Anyone else have trouble finding gender neutral baby gifts? What colors do you think are unisex?
