I made this little romper the other day, thinking that I’d give it to a friend who is having a baby boy. Throughout the process, I wondered if it’s a little too feminine looking. I sewed up a size Medium, which is about a 12 month, though it fits Jude pretty well- at 19 months. … Continue reading Plaid romper- too girly?
