Lenore Romper

One of my most talked about pieces. I put it together using a vintage pattern on a 70’s style spaghetti strap romper. I modified it by using a lapel and pleated trim on the legs for a more vintage and turn of the century look. I used recycled cotton for the bodice and contrasted the lapel and pleated trim with recycled cotton batiste. I also used vintage buttons to accent the bodice. It has also been modified to be used as a halter piece rather than spaghetti straps. The elastic band on the halter and the waist line make it expandable and comfortable. Topped with a caplet and you have one cute outfit.
