Holding on to Summer… Fashion Wise
In my usual fashion, I’m posting something that I made for my granddaughter a few weeks late. A whole season late! I made this little romper for MacKensie way back in July! I used a piece of cotton blend fabric that I’ve had in my stash for years. I wasn’t too sure I’d like the romper when it was finished, so I used a fabric that I wasn’t worried about wasting. To my surprise and delight, it is cute after all!
I made a size 1, and it fit perfectly. The pattern doesn’t recommend the the bum ruffles, but when you have such a cute little bum to dress, why skimp on ruffles? If I ever make it again, I will lower the front neckline slightly, and maybe leave out the elastic at the ‘waist’. The elastic seems to sit so high on the body that to me it looks strange.
Isn’t she adorable? I may be slightly biased, but not much. Isn’t it amazing how quickly babies grow and change? These photos were taken in mid-July. A month later she looked like this!
