Ready to romp

Added Jun 15, 2009

Boulder, Colorad...






I really love the idea of the romper, so I was very excited to try out the new Doryon pattern. I had some trouble finding any fabric I was very excited about, so I decided to make a basic version and skip the inset part. I had some trouble with the fit – I think my torso is too long for the size I used, so I added ties to the shoulders to help adjust the length. This turned out to be another learning experience project, but I like the design of the pattern and think I know how to fit it better once I find the right fabric!

Material Notes

Basic grey cotton, invisible zipper




Garment Type
