Best Clothing For a One Year Old

Published at 03/28/2012 00:27:59


Baby boutiques and departmental stores are full of baby clothes and accessories but if you want to customize clothing for a one year old, they will not help you. It will be difficult to find one clothing for a one-of-a-kind outfit. Perhaps, you can make original clothing rather cheaply at home as a best option and you do not require many years of sewing experience to make one clothing worthy outfits.

What kind of clothes does a one year old need? The answer will be loose fitting clothes as the one-year-olds require a lot of movement like crawling and rolling. Loose clothes will allow for development. Depending on where you live and the climate, a one year old will need clothes that fit and which are clean. He or she will need one clothing like jimmies, jackets, socks, shoes, hats, gloves, boots, raincoats and, most importantly, diapers.


In the ancient and medieval world, people had very few changes of clothing. For most of history, nearly all one-year-olds wore dresses regardless of gender. You can find that even now. You will find a girl wearing boys’ clothes and often boys wearing girls’ dresses. In the latter part of the twentieth century, sex specific one clothing came into fashion. Boys started wearing pants while girls wore dresses. In the earlier part of the last century, one year old boys only wore short pants and knickers.

Up to the eighteenth century, most fabrication of one clothing was done by hand. Spinning and weaving machines came later. Post nineteen eighties, clothing for children took a colourful turn and featured fad items. It was common to see bright hues of yellow, blue and purple on one-year-olds. Times had changed to excess when bigger and brighter was considered better.



It is quite economical and best to make one clothing at home. You can make a lovely bandana dress for one year olds by placing two bandanas together with the good sides facing inward. You can select a top and bottom end for the dress. You can sew the sides of the bandanas together, starting at the bottom and stopping six inches away from the top edge of the bandanas. You can then fold about an inch of fabric along the top edge and sew the fold as close to the edge as you can. Turn over the dress and sew the same fold line along the back. You may then cut two pieces of a ribbon that is an inch wide. Each piece could be two feet long. Insert one ribbon into the fold at the top back of the dress and the other into the fold at the front. Turn the dress right side out and pull the ribbons. Tie the ribbons at the right side in a bow and repeat the same with the left side. Bandana dress is ready.

Another best kind of one clothing you can make is ruffled short pants or diaper covers. You can lay the short pants or diaper covers with the front facing downward and measure the width from the left to the right side of the seam for your finished ruffles. Cut ribbons that are an inch wide into six pieces to the width and keeping extra margin to make the ruffles. Sew a loose stitch across one long side of each ribbon and then tug on the thread at the end of each ribbon to make the ruffles. Sew a tight straight stitch to secure the ruffle to the short pants or diapers. This is probably the best option for clothing of a one year old.

Tips and comments

Lace is a popular material with the little girls. Jeans will do quite well for both boys and girls. Many departmental stores and online retail stores are offering baby clothing sets from 0-2 years old.

Finding best one clothing is essential for parents. Many economical T-shirts are available in the market. You get quite a large variety, in fact, in big departmental stores. You can fill your shopping cart with mini Levi jeans, tiny sailor suits, floral sundresses, peasant smocks and rompers in every color.
