Description

This is a romper I made from vintage 1970s Simplicity 6904. It was getting pretty hot around here and it was time to keep cool with something new. Having never made a romper before, I’m amazed at their sweet yet sexy appeal. So easy to wear too, an all in one outfit. For more details, check out my blog post.

    I love this!! And even though I’ve never like a romper that much before I may just be thinking about making one for myself also.

    Never thought that I’m a romper kind of girl, but here I am loving everything about it! The fabric looks like candy, just adorable. And I love your hat!

    The first romper that don`t reminds me of a babys suit! It looks great on you – the look of summer – and the striped fabric is very nice.
