    this is silly but i would like some totally unbiased opinions.

    i LOVE making baby clothes. i still make most of my daughters clothing and i plan on making the new little ones clothes as well.

    is this too feminine for a baby boy?? i am assuming (until i find out for sure next week) that this one is a boy, since i seem to have mainly boys, and i think these look so darling on little newborns but my sister said that they are "sissy" and "gay"
    [​IMG] i could easily make these and they wouldnt be almost 50 dollars either.

    at any rate, i dont want anyone thinking my new little one is a girl if he isnt..even though everyone thought my girl was a boy even when she was in a dress, until she was a year old

    If you like it thats all that matters. Its clearly made for a boy, in blue. maybe with a pair of matching pants? Some of my family members didnt like that I had my mom make my youngest son a Baptismal gown instead of a suit but I thought it was cute and it was clearly a boys style. Do what you like and ignore your sisters opinion.

    If you were considering doing it in pastel pink for a boy then I would say no. lol It looks wonderful and with the little train and the blue color it is just fine for a boy.

    I think its the 'flare' at the bottom that your sis is basing her decision on.

    I always put my boys in those day-gowns that came all the way past their toes and then had the drawn string or elastic at the bottom. I just took the strings out for safety. So, I say go for it. If baby is comfy, then mommy is happy [​IMG]
