I made this romper near the beginning of June from a mish-mash of patterns. I had bought a vintage sleepsuit pattern to use for the general structure, but long story short I had too many problems trying to re-size it and I ended up sort of improvising with the top. The bottoms are an alteration of the Jane negligee shorts. I finished it off with pockets and a sash for the waist, that ties into a large bow at the back.
After a few struggles along the way, I came out extremely satisfied and with a piece of clothing I loved. I’ve been living in this thing every since!
cotton, elastic for top and waist
