I recently purchased an item of clothing by The Bailey Boys clothing line. Since I don't shop for children on a regular basis I always ask my neighbor with 2 little ones if she recommends a certain line of clothes that she is really happy with. This line came with high praise. I found this one piece Bailey Boys reversible shortall in a little specialty shop. I had been hunting for something with a dinosaur on it. That wasn't as easy as I thought but the minute I pulled this outfit off the rack I knew I had found what I wanted, complete with a dinosaur appliqué.
I immediately put it back, it was $64.99, talk about sticker shock!! Thank goodness my SIL was with me and pointed out a sign above the rack "This Section Only - 60% Off". I left the store anyway and checked other shops in the area. No dinosaur anything. I started calculating 60% off would bring the outfit to $26.00. I would be getting 2 completely different outfits since it was reversible to another color and a different appliqué.
I went back and bought it.
This once piece Shortall is a mint green seersucker material on one side with a dinosaur appliqué. There are 2 buttons on the shoulder straps and 5 snaps in the diaper area.
The reversible side is a light blue seersucker with a bunny appliqué.
The workmanship on this outfit is beyond excellent and the appliqué designs are unique and beautifully stitched.
I have since found out that is outfit is called a reversible john john (named after John Kennedy Jr.). There is a matching reversible jumper for girls. The Bailey Boys, Inc. has received an award for their use of U.S. cotton in their apparel lines which made me feel even better about making this purchase.
My neighbor tells me these wash up beautifully, the colors stay true, no shrinkage, and the outfits outlast her children's growing need for larger sizes.
I purchased my outfit in a size 6 months. Sizes for Bailey Boys range from 3 months to size 7 for the boys and 3 months to size 10 for the girls. There is also a Bailey Babies line and one called Chabre'.
This outfit is going to a Shared Review friend, one of many who are pregnant and due soon!!
