I loved tailored clothes for children but my kids love dress ups. The solution? A reversible jacket! On one side, a lined, woollen hooded coat with leather buttons - perfect for any occasion and on the other, a spotty, spikey dinosaur. The spikes are woollen felt - enough body to stand up, but not scratchy on skin. The pants are also designed to keep us both happy... dark denim with structured pockets for me and spotty green trim for him.
The dressed up - dress up outfit. A perfect compromise, I think!
