    I think it's fine, as pp it's not really my taste but I wouldn't think anything of it on someone else, my first thought was little mermaid.

    I thought it may have been because she is considering making more of the items either for sale or gifting. In which case I think it's prudent to try and ascertain whether the feedback given this far is genuine - strangers online are probably going to tell the truth moreso than a friend who doesn't want to hurt your feelings. Uncertainty and cautiousness can be good things when it comes to gift giving or running a business.

    Apologies if this is not what the OP was considering. And yes, it's totally possible the recipient loved the gift.
    I agree, we received outfits that my honest first instinct was... I'd never buy that/completely impractical. I never said this to the gift giver of course, I always thanked them and did the token photo. Gifts are wonderful, it is the thought that counts.

    OP I think you can see that there are mixed point of views here which is exactly what you'll get out in public. The main thing is that you like it and clearly there are others that do too.

    I don't think there's any right or wrong with this. It comes down to a matter of personal preference and opinion. Some people will like it and some won't. The friend you made it for loved it, and that's what matters. Its not to my taste, but it wasn't for me so that doesn't matter!

    I think you did a lovely thing making a personal gift for a friend and I'm glad she appreciated it. There are very few clothing items that everyone is going to love so don't worry about it too much.

    Default Would you put this on your daughter?

    I should clarify that whenever I receive a handmade/personalized present (even if it doesn't cost them anything) the gift giver gets 100 bonus points in my books - the thought really does count. So unless the handmade gift was something totally inappropriate (picture of a baby holding a gun while having a ciggie) that person would probably still be way ahead in the good books compared with a friend that gave my DS a book, DVD, target clothes (all nice gifts in themselves).
    (Not that friends get rated just on their gift giving - it's the thought that counts and thought can come through in a variety of mediums).

    It is a clam shell bikini top printed on a shirt... no I wouldn't put that on my little girls. Like I wouldn't dress a little boy in pants with an outline of undies on the front. It's just not my cup of tea.

    Just asking out of curiosity - so you wouldn't let your son wear a superman costume because it has 'undies' on the outside?

    Not having a go, just genuinely wondering

    The design has pictures where the breasts are. So if the wearer was an adult or a child if I saw that in the street I would immediately think the wearer wants to draw attention to their breast area. So for that purpose I wouldn't put my daughter if I had one in this shirt nor would I buy it for myself. Sorry.

    I actually thought it was a cute bow. I wouldn't even have realised! Now that I'm looking at it like that...nope. Not my cup of tea.

    I do wonder... to all those who find it problematic or distasteful, do you have the same problem with this? spider-man-movie-muscle-toddler-costume.jpg
    As I said previously...to me it's the same thing. I don't really like either for the same reason - they use adult body parts/features in clothing for a child. I can't see too many people having an issue with muscles on a costume for a little boy though. Is the suggestion of adult bodies only seen as sexualised when it's a female body, or do people take issue with muscles being suggested on boys?

    I have an issue with the nudity part that the first Tshirt induce.

    I am not a fan of the fake muscles either but don't see it as sexualized.
