Added Jul 5, 2012
I wanted to make rompers for my 2 youngest nieces (4 and 2.5 yo). They didn’t turn out quite as I wanted, but I think they turned out OK. I made my own ‘shorts’ pattern from pairs of pants, then basically added a tube top. I added straps that I had shirred (first attempt at that, but turned out pretty good I think, really easy to do).
I had issues doing the hem on the purple shorts because they wouldn’t fit around my sewing machine, even with the arm free. The shorts might be a little long, my sister took the measurements for me and she wasn’t sure on the inseam length, so I kinda guessed.
I had this fabric in my stash, I got it pretty cheap. Lightweight fabric for summer, frayed like crazy! Not the greatest/nicest fabric, but I figured I’d use it for a ‘first try’ attempt.
This is the first non-dress clothing project I’ve really attempted.
