Light blue romper for my son. He needed some summer clothes (for when it eventually gets warm here), but I was having trouble finding some nice and affordable clothing for him. I had a hand-me-down romper that I decided to use as a pattern. The original had lining, which I left out since this was basically a trial run. At first I just used snaps on the shoulder straps, but they weren’t strong enough. I watched a button hole tutorial and finally got brave enough to try some button holes. I’m hoping to do this again but with lining and hopefully improve my button hole technique.
