With this realisation, I have had to kiss the following things goodbye: hair clips; pretty trims ; peace and quiet; bluebirds; bows; 85% of the clothing selection in childrenswear stores; dollies; pink; mary jane shoes; swap cards; and almost every commercial pattern listed in the children's section of the pattern book. Apparently the major pattern companies don't do Y chromosones. Unless your small boy aspires to look like Hannah Montana.
Actually mine might. They are still in that beautiful age of innocence. A small window when little boys like pink, will dress in sparkly beads and bangles and think it would be pretty cool to wear lipstick. At this stage I could pretty much sew them anything I wanted to. They would love a tutu or a floral kimono top.
Note to self: Don't get carried away; this would be socially unacceptable.
So, it looks like I will be sewing lots of gifts for little girls. That way I can get my fix of frills and flounces. Still, I might just use Argy and Bargy for the fittings. That would be ok, right?
