Shouldn't this be easier for me since I *AM* a girl?

I am having issues with some of Juliette's clothing - it confuses me!! I've given Eric a hard time over the years for putting Kiernan and Quinn's clothing on backwards (buttons at the back or buttons at the front for babies?) and suddenly I'm looking at girly clothing and I can't decide which is the front and which is the back!! The clues are confusing so I've taken some photos of one of the most perplexing case in J's wardrobe - maybe you can help me out.

Overalls... typically I imagine that they have two buttons at the front at the top where you do the straps up. Right? And pockets on the back on the tush? Do these rules still apply if the tag is on the side where the straps attach? And if there are buttons on what I would think was the back? Do I have this on her backwards? I think I've done it both ways and I can't decide!!

UPDATED: I turned it around because the consensus seemed to be I had them on backwards. I still feel like the 3 buttons up the back looks weird and don't understand why the tag would be on the front...

Backwards or forwards - these guys are getting cuter and cuter each day -despite the dripping with spit and slightly rashy faces that comes with pre-teething ;)

Is that the only pair of overalls you are having issues with? And I have to say, those babies are SUPER CUTE!

I would say they are definately on backwards. I have noticed with overalls that the tags ARE in the front, often enough. It is confusing, and it's not like you don't have enough going on as it is!!!
Turn those bad boys around, and snip off the tag!! lol
Good work, Lara - those kids are amazing!! Just gorgeous!

I would say that the way the buttons on the side look, the buttons should be on the front. The fabric should be on the top with the opening facing the back. Same with the snaps between the legs. If I am seeing it right, the buttons go on the front.

OK - I just went and looked at 2 pairs of Osh K'osh overalls of Rhens... while I still feel they look backward in the first pics, the buttons up the legs DO do up with the fabric facing the back, as the previous poster said.. so I don't know what to tell you. And I agree - in the new pic, the side button seems too far toward the back, which would make me think they're on backward.. ARGH!! Confuddled!!
