When Rebecca at Rock the Stitch asked me to contribute along with the ideas for using chevron I knew that I wanted to feature this adorable ruffle bum romper!
Amy at Peekaboo Pattern Shop is so talented with all of her patterns and I used her Ruffle Bum Pattern to make this outfit!

This pattern is actually the pattern that I've seen the most sales through my affiliate links! No one can resist a ruffle bum on a baby girl!
To jazz it up a bit I added the firework embroidery from Embroitique - paired with the red and white chevron print it is the perfect patriotic outfit for a baby! (fabric is Riley Blake medium chevron)
Isn't this scenery gorgeous? We went to Arrington Vinyards for Memorial Day and it was perfect weather! I love Tennessee!!!
One shot I forgot to get while we were outside was of the back!
I wanted you to see these adorable ruffles and the crossing straps that knot in the front! This makes the romper a perfect fit and I'll bet you that Eva Mae will be able to wear it next year too!
The snaps I used for the crotch are the plastic Babyville snaps that you can get in the cloth diaper section at the craft store. They work the best for me - I've heard that the KAM snaps and snap pliers are great but I haven't tried those yet. I have the Dritz snap pliers and I can never get the prongs lined up correctly!!!
