It’s Kids Clothes Week! This time I didn’t even sign up (because keeping it real). HOWEVER, I did happen to make this romper and it does happen to be KCW so I’m calling it even. I just won’t bother to title the post “Day 3!” as if I’m even a little bit optimistic about their being any subsequent days. I’m just sayin, maybe there will be any maybe there won’t.
Simplicity 1813 is a vintage repro pattern for baby girl summer clothes. I love a good romper and the one included with this pattern is super quick and easy. I loved making this! It was a breeze. There are only two pattern pieces and if I hadn’t been using a directional print I would have had it cut out in no time. Stupid, stupid directional prints. I used not quite a yard of Opal Owl by Free Spirit that I bought at Lake Country Patchwork last summer. I simplified it a little by using fold over elastic at the legs instead of making a casing (best modification ever!) and by using diaper velcro instead of snap tape at the crotch (I just cut it in half to make it narrow enough to fit.)
I can’t decide if I should make another romper or try one of the little tunics. I’m thinking another romper in a light gray bias gingham that I have no other plans for.
