Baby's bday romper

Added Dec 30, 2011

Queens, New York...






Was my first hand at really using my machine for my daughter’s first bday. Its a sleeveless floral print romper with genie-like pant legs (Olivia from The Cosby Show was my inspiration). There’s elastic at the ankles, so it can also be worn at capri length. Neckline was horribly rushed for the party but in the second pic I took my time and made wider straps and neckline (and my baby created a lovely outfit altogether by herself!). -Based on a Butterick 6 pattern pack w/ a few tweaks

Material Notes

I’m not exactly sure what type of fabric it was, but when I washed and dried it, the colors became washed out looking almost instantly. Perhaps someone who is better with fabrics can let me know




Garment Type


Short sleeve button-up, sneakers and striped shirt

      thank you, she was a very stylish little girl at the time, I intend to sew more based on that inspiration using more ethnic prints
