I have discovered that there’s a gap in sizing of baby clothes that I have. We got the clothes second-hand, stuffed into a large garbage sack, and while I did sort through them to pull out the items that I hated, I didn’t pay much attention to the sizing. As Baby grew, I simply found the sizes that I needed, and didn’t pay much attention to everything else. This last time, however, I realized that we don’t have very many clothes that can fit a 6-12 month old — mostly just jackets.
In the past week or so, I started lamenting the fact that I haven’t been able to choose what sorts of clothes I put my baby in. I absolutely love how she looks in little dresses, but we only own a couple of them. The older she gets, the more that I want to dress her in clothing that I find cute. Maybe it’s a mom thing.
So, I’ve started mentally running the numbers, so to speak. How realistic would it be for me to start making clothing for her? Do I have the time? Can I get the materials? Would it interfere too much with my bigger, more elaborate projects? Would she grow out of them too quickly to make it worth my while? Would I be better off making a trip to the thrift store?
I’m leaning towards going ahead with it.
