I'm looking forward to seeing all the great rompers this week!!! Here's what I made for our celebration!
I hope you've seen the announcement that Heidi from Elegance & Elephants is offering this pattern for free? You have to check it out >>here<<!
I found this awesome fabric in the red tag section at JoAnn's and knew it would drape really well for the romper! The only negative I had working with the fabric was how horrible the fraying was! Since I normally don't work with silkier apparel fabrics I'm not used to proper techniques for managing the raveling. I have a lot to learn!!!
I just love how this looks on my little girl! She is so much fun and was able to get around just fine in the romper - It's a great playsuit!
The lining I used for the pocket lining and facing was some of the Sarah Jane Out to Sea fabric. You can see a little peek of it in this picture! I am so glad that nautical is popular right now in children's clothes! I love nautical prints and shapes! In fact, I'm sewing some sailor shorts right now for the Peek-a-Boo summer blog tour coming next week!
I can't wait to see what you've come up with for Romper Week! Add your link below and don't forget to enter the giveaway!!! Come back tomorrow to see what Amy makes!
