Dress Your Baby Using Ideas from Pinterest

Posted by lauren roland at 11:33 AM

Searching for baby clothes online at a site like Pinterest can be fun. There's no better place to find interesting and inspiring baby clothes. Using Pinterest for inspiration is a great idea if you're running low on creativity or just want to have some fashion fun. Here are a few tips for recreating gorgeous online baby outfits:
Look for similar items rather than exact replicas. You'll be a lot happier if you decide in advance that you want to dress your baby in an outfit inspired by, rather than exactly like, the one you saw online. If you try to duplicate it down to the diaper, you're going to wind up sad and frustrated. Instead, decide what you like about the outfit. Then find baby clothes that duplicate that feature. For example, if you like a plaid onesie shown in a photo, don't try to hunt down that exact plaid onesie. Perhaps you'll find a plaid onesie in another color scheme, or maybe you'll find a striped t-shirt using the same colors from the photo. The key is to let the image inspire you rather than let it drive you crazy.

Check the link. Each Pinterest image comes along with a link that shows where the image came from. These sometimes come from blogs and personal websites, but they often come from baby clothes websites. Before you look elsewhere, determine if the link attached to the picture is an online store that will let you purchase the garments you love. If that's the case, then your job is easy!

Shop for baby clothes online. If the link attached to the photo wasn't for the garment you loved, don't despair! You have other options. You may not be able to find a particular item of baby clothes in your local children's clothing store. That's where the Internet comes in! Search your favorite stores' websites for items that match what you're looking for. Buying baby clothes online is simple and easy. It gives you an outlet for finding items that may not be available where you live.

Search the Internet. If you're truly having trouble finding the baby clothes online at your favorite children's clothing stores, then search for the item online. You may find that stores not typically known for kid's clothes do sell a few items meant for children. Or perhaps you'll learn about a new children's clothing store you didn't know existed.

Recreate the item yourself. If you can't find what you're looking for anywhere online, then it's time to get out the sewing machine! Again, determine what it is that you liked about the original look. Color scheme, fabric, cut, and embellishment all play a role in a garment. Pick the factors that called to you and incorporate them into a new outfit for your baby. Even if you can't sew, you can create and embellish garments for your child. Use iron-on transfers and fusible webbing to create cute clothes inspired by the image you pinned.

It's easy to get lost in Pinterest! Fortunately, when you come out again, you're totally inspired. If you've seen a kid's outfit that you absolutely have to have, try these strategies for hunting down the perfect garments to complete the look you love.
