The Politically Correct Baby Jacket

politically correct baby jacket - 2My good friend Jackie is having a baby in May and very unusually for this day and age has elected to not find out the gender of the bub to be. So any gifts have to be gender-neutral.

This jacket was knitted out of undyed organic cotton, making it not only gender neutral but politically correct as well.  The ‘buttons’ are knitted bobbles, which is less of a choking risk than plastic, wood or glass buttons (especially as they are sewn on extra-tight).  I knitted the same jacket for Hannah out of a more colourful bamboo/cotton blend. She wore it from birth until 6 months – an eternity in baby clothes time. Initially it was a little big and needed the sleeves rolled up and towards the end she could only wear it unbuttoned but it was a very practical garment and I hope as much use to Jackie as it was to me.
