There are some talented sewing WAHM's out there. Can someone PLLLLEEEEAAASSSEEEEEEEEEEE make some cute boy's clothing? And by cute, I mean, bright contrasting colors, fun (maybe retro inspired) fabrics? Boutique-y style stuff?
I know you will become a famous and sought-after clothing designer if you do!!!!!!
My sons need some style and I'm not finding it anywhere!

Jess at WeCeeDee makes adorable boys pants and cover sets - all cut to fit over puffy cd butts.

I make mostly boys stuff, becuase I have 2 boys, but I have noticed that it doesn't sell as well as girls stuff.

Okay, I love bold color combos like light green/kelly green, avocado and orange etc etc. Maybe some boot cut pants that are reversible with a print inside and solid outside with contrasting piping? I also love long shorts with a little pocket on the side -almost like pedal pushers but more boyish, looks cute with sandals.
Matching tees with an applique of the fabric used on the inside of pants?

Thanks for the bump.

OH, I found shortstak.com...I was quite impressed, as it is an actual clothing line. Very urban and cool.

I've really just been trying to be creative with the kid's clothes. Thrift shopping really yields me the best outfits. Westen looked like a GAP kid model today. I bought him a white fitted long sleeve shirt (it had really clean lines, from the girls section) and grey flannel button down to go over it. Then he was wearing some cropped cutoff jeans...he was so cool. Not bad for $7 bucks total!

That is cool stuff at shortstak.
I also like Oilily and eBay is always a good place to shop for it. They have really super cute boys stuff without the "surfer dude" theme.
Westen sounds like he was very sporty! Snd that IS a good deal! (Cool name, too)
