Cotton Lace Romper with Hand Made Yoke

Romper is not really my style, but i selected this project based on what I want to make rather than what I want to wear.

Ever since I saw Ellen’s Wrap tank with Embroidery, http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/wrap-tank-with-embroidery, I wanted to try my hand at the cut out embroidery technique. Coincidently this technique was also featured in the 07/2014 issue of Burda style magazine. When I saw this romper pattern, I decided I can use the embroidery on the yoke. I found the black lace cotton and this pink silky rayon in my stash and this is my version of the Doryon romper.

I reproduced the flower pattern on the black lace for the cut out embroidery on the yoke, and made french knots for the center of the flowers. The pink yoke is underlined with silk organza, and the black cotton lace bodice is underlined with the same pink rayon fabric as the yoke. I wanted to keep the neckline clean so I used bias binding for the neckline and armholes, but blind hem finished on the inside instead of top stitching. The belt is made out of black silk faille. All inside seams are finished with Hong Kong seam finish with bias silk organza.

I spent way too much time on the finishing of this romper which I might never wear, but I love the finished product.

Material Notes

Cotton lace, silky rayon, silk organza, silk faille, invisible zipper, snap buttons.
