Last time we visited my mama (who lives in another city) she was holding DS2 and was petting his longies and said "oh, these are so soft, did you knit it with cotton?"
I said, "no, all his pants are wool, mama! It's just the best quality, softest wool!"

Re: Someone called my ds longies clown pants

My baby is chunky and doesn't fit in most store clothes. Even his shirts are hard find nice fits on. He can't even wear infant socks. I started making his clothes out of wool sweaters.(can't afford knit right now) A friend told me recently that now he is beginning to crawl he will start to slim down and be able to wear regular clothes. I was thinking no now that taxes will be in soon I will be able to get yarn to knit up some longies.

Re: Someone called my ds longies clown pants

I'm blessed to have friends who all knit and can appreciate any knit items, and have only gotten compliments on our woolies. But I'm sure if I was in a busy place with bright woolies some people may look at them funny, but usually people look at us like that anyway bc we have such a large family

But at least you can come here and know how much we all share the love! Sorry people can be so rude IRL!

Other than My mom requesting that ds3 wear 'real' clothes to holidays/special occasions held at her house, I've never had anything but compliments on his woolies

I'm sure plenty of people don't like them, but the people that stop me to compliment them make up for it.

Tell your friend that custom fit and functional clothing is more your 'style'
