Vintage Fabric Floral Romper

Added Jul 12, 2010

by jodeusp

Deerfield, Illin...






I’m quite proud of this! It’s the only thing I’ve sewn that isn’t just a dress. Sorry I don’t have better pictures of the actual sewing, these were taken for my blog. It has a ruffle around the top in front, I don’t know if you can tell. I used a vintage pattern for the shorts part and tweaked it a little so that I could add on the waistband, top, and ruffle. I made my own bias tape to go around the top.

Material Notes

Vintage cotton fabric, 18" black zipper, vintage pattern




Garment Type

    Hi! Any tips for how you made the ruffle around the top?

      They’re just big inverted pleats, you can probably find a tutorial on how to do them if you search inverted pleats!

      Hope that helped :)

      Nope, sorry! I used a pattern for the shorts part, but then made the top part myself. Good luck looking though.
