You Got It, Dude

I made this Oliver & S jumpsuit for a friend around here, but realized she probably wouldn't dress her son in it. Maybe it's too feminine, or maybe it looks too much like a clown outfit. This is the kind of friend who wears jeans and conservative sweaters, who loves sending her husband off in a suit everyday, and appreciates me for being really "artsy". Excellent!

So I've made her son something else (stay tuned) and saved this outfit for another friend. But I've realized in making it, how much I like kids in funny clothing - something unexpected, something ironic, and without brands or gender specifics. I like myself in the same things, actually!
