I made this little romper with no pattern. Now, I realize that to the outside observer, this appears to be an ill-fitting, slightly odd-looking creation, but for me, this was a project of many firsts. Most importantly, I made my own pattern for the first time ever! I also used elastic in a project for the first time. Finally, this was my first time to ever use a serger!
I decided to make it high-waisted, which I think is the most significant mistake. I also probably could improve the fit of the top, it’s pretty loose and shapeless.
At any rate, it was very exciting to me to make something without a pattern, so I’m not disappointed with the results!
