    Excellent jumper that looks perfect on you. I’ve been looking for a pattern, but I like your idea— I’ll wait until one pops up at a thrift store!

    It’s great! A lot of rompers I’ve checked out are quite fitted, but yours looks like it might be quite comfy :)

      yes, it’s quite unfitted, which is one of my favorite things about it. i think this will be my go-to piece for those days when i’m feeling a little puffy;)

      Thanks Nettie!
      I wasn’t entirely sure if I’d be able to pull it off either when I was sewing it. Thank goodness for tights and long sleeved blouses!
