The 1930's Retro Romper

I made this from a pattern that dates back to 1939. My daughter decided she liked it and picked out this SUPER loud 70’s style print in a stretchy denim. The hardest part about the whole thing was trying to figure out the side button placket. I might try a hand picked side zip the next time around, but I like it anyway. There’s more construction info here on my blog.

    Heeeeeey, girl’s got taste! A wee stylista after my own heart :D She’s so lucky to have a Mom who facilitates her budding fashion sense!

      Thank you! I’m tickled that she likes it so much and that she seems to be into “vintage” so much.
