Dropped crotch romper

Added Jul 1, 2009

Tokyo, Japan






After seeing them around so much, I finally decided to give a try on romper. The pattern is very simple, I only lengthened the top of a dropped-crotch pants until it reached my chest. Then I created rows of elastic shirrings on the bodice part to create a tight fit. Since my elastic strings are a bit thick, I enclosed them in rows of zigzag stitches. The straps also have elastics in them so they wouldn’t fall off.

The result looks like a giant baby clothing, I kinda like it but still have doubt whether this romper suits me or not. But my husband said it looked really cute. Or maybe he’s just being nice.

Material Notes

cotton with black and white elephant print

    Adorable. Great job! I’ve been looking at many different romper styles lately trying to decide what I should attempt when I get around to it. Thank you for the additional inspiration.

    i like how the fabric can just look like an assorted black/white pattern, but then you look again and theyre elephants!! you’ve created a fantastic romper, and i think you look great in it!

    You look so comfortable. There should be a better name for this garment. I hear “Rompers”, I think “Babies.” How about a sunsuit? Whatever it is called, you have done a great-looking job. Nehmah

    You look GREAT! not many people can rock a romper but you’re doing it ;o) I can’t rock a romper.. but if I could I’d want one just like this. its not babyish at all.
