Description

I drafted this romper from a pair of shorts and attached it to a basic sleeveless top that I drafted. I added a zipper in the back so I could get into it easier. I opted not to do an elastic casing at the waist because I didn’t like the way it bunched up. It’s comfy and fun to run around in.

Material Notes

1.5 yards of gingham, 20 in zipper and thread

    You make it sound so easy – I tried to do exactly that, some time ago, but got myself into a horrible mess! Yours rocks though!

      Thank you. I had to add the belt because it kind of looked too much like a baby onesie.

      Thank you. I found that belt at a thrift store and it has added quite a bit of flare to many an outfit.
