I'm going to do an ongoing series of pictures to share how I dress my little guy. It might give people dressing boys some inspiration for breaking away from all those trucks and blue trackies that seem to dominate the playground (the half that isn't pink that is).
This first post is retrospective, looking back through the baby albums. It's more an idea of how to dress a baby (or how not to?) from a rather strange and eclectic mix of op shop finds. These days Neko tends to be dressed in things I make, but having wrongly assumed he'd be late, @ 39weeks I'd hardly started my baby sewing projects.. And by the time he napped long enough to let me sew even one tee or a quick pair of leggings, he was nearly 3 months old.
People often commented when I was pregnant that my kid would be well dressed, they probably weren't imagining mismatched socks, on hands and feet, a stained lemon towling onesie from 1988, a red velor cardi and a lime green home knitted hat? But those were the sorts of treasures that the op shop gods provided, along with a huge array of navy and white striped numbers, which always stood out in the op shop as the best option if I wanted to avoid trucks and pink! And of course the delightful array of perfect condition home knitted jumpers and cardis, as I soon discovered, if the season and size didn't line up, then these beauties never got a look in.
