Re: Would this be o.k. for a boy?

I vote snap, but that is out of shear laziness of hating to tie things. I think it would look fine either way.

I made lots of kimonos with ties, very easy to put on. I would put the floral ties on my babes, boy or girl, they look gn to me! Beautiful work!!!

I'd do the snap, soft velcro or maybe even a brown or cream button.

Oh and kam snaps may indeed be too bulky and will def need reinforcing! I really would stick with brown/floral ties.

I wouldn't put the ribbon on my boy... I definitely think a better color coordinated snap would be awesome. I do love the ribbons, but just not for a boy. My husband would freak...

Re: Would this be o.k. for a boy?

Thank you all for your input.

I found ONE cream-colored KAM snap and put it on the kimono-top, and use cream-colored ties on the coordinating onesies that go under it.

I ordered a bulk package of metal ring snaps now for future projects in fine knit fabric, those with the five teeth to hammer in, much less bulky and I hope less strain on the fabric.

Hope that some of the brown merino will be left and I can make a camisole or undies for myself with the brown mille fleur bow!
