There's always the tried-and-true applique method.  Don't know if that appeals to you, but white t-shirts are cheap and it's easy to do.

That's how I differentiate between the t-shirts that are NOT to get muddy/stained with spaghetti sauce and those that can.  Gotta keep some nicer for sleeping in..

PS I agree that boy clothes are soooo boring.  Why is that?

I find I relate more to Max & Ruby as I get older.

Exceptionally happy looking baby! Reminds me of mine when they were that small...

I'm with you: I don't like doing buttons/buttonholes either. In desperation, I redesigned a baby shirt pattern I had so that it opened at the shoulders instead, completely bypassing the whole button aspect. I closed it along the shoulder area with some of those sturdy snaps you hammer on. The seams went together so well, the snaps were really unobtrusive, so you couldn't tell the shirt opened up there. It was a very neat look, and I made what seemed like hundreds to bolster my baby romper and t-shirt collection...I've just gotten involved with Craftster, so I haven't rigged up any tutorials yet, but I intend to.

In the meantime, you might want to try it yourself, or do a buttondown pattern, replacing the buttons with soft velcro circles...play with it. Babies are live-action dolls to dress up. It's fun!
