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.
