My best friend’s mom has an amazing collection of patterns from when she was young and I was so excited to come across a romper pattern. The plaid fabric is from her collection as well. I didn’t modify the pattern at all for this attempt, but it came out rather snug so I’m going to make some changes for the next time I make it. The romper pulls on and fastens at one shoulder with some buttons which are made with the same fabric. I wore this outfit on Christmas with my family and I’d have to say that I was definitely the best dressed. Everyone should have a romper.
Plaid cotton, plaid buttons made with a button kit.
