Burda playsuit 05/2016#118a

Antrim, Co Antri...






I liked this playsuit or romper as burda calls it as soon as I saw it. Simple with a neat twist on the back and pockets which I love. Now I never really do simple lol so I used a pattern fabric that I had to match. I actually saw this fabric as wallpaper on an old episode of the avengers lol. It was near identical lol.I wore this on our trike ride around benidorm and out to altea alfaz and then up to the cross. it was a fabulous day out. Of course I ended up with the gawky helmet but it was such fun.I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing the whole time x

    Wonderful pictures about wonderful adventures! As soon as I saw you in this romper, I lost all of my doubts about this pattern. You managed to make it very individual, I like the fabric and the crossing of the bands on the back. Did you lengthen the shorts?

      Thank you oksana. I had such a wonderful holiday. Me and my friend laughed so much. I did lengthen the shorts as the pattern was a bit short. This is a really good cute holiday playsuit and I will definitely make another, maybe in a solid fabric x

      Me too. You look so cute in it lol.
      The longer short length is a big improvement. Easy, too, as the pattern includes a trouser version.
