Handmade kids clothes with a retro Preppy feel

Kids' clothes for summer by Mabo KidsSummer is here, and once it gets hot, the temptation to just let the baby loll around in a diaper — or maybe a onesie — is almost overwhelming. But if you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to keep the baby cool and cute, all at once. Because the baby can only go so many places in just a diaper.

Here’s the solution: Mabo Kids’
line of hand-crafted childrens wear is a dream come true for Preppy
moms. Each piece is made of beautiful fabric, and everything is
hand-sewn in small batches by seamstresses in Washington state. Sizes
range from six months to six years.

I’m smitten with the bloomer sets for girls, which are perfect for hot summer weather. The Liberty print gives these baby togs a more polished look.

I also love Mabo’s gingham pieces — how cute would the smocked dress and romper be in a family photograph? Too cute for words, really. Or put all the kids in a white tee or polo and matching linen drawstring pants — perfect for boys and girls. Best holiday card photo ever.  On the pragmatic side,  the bloomer shorts are perfect on their own, or under a dress for climbing trees, and the polka dot sundress can go from party to playdate without missing a beat. -Susan
