We’re back folks! Time for another round of Vintage May!
If you haven’t heard of this world wide phenomenon yet (har har), well…I’ll tell you all about it.
Kristin from Skirt as Top and I started it 4 years ago-it’s a series we run that’s all about vintage loveliness and inspiration! (basically for me it’s an excuse to wear red lipstick and dress my kids up freaking adorably.)
This year is no different (you saw the line up right? it’s gonna be epic!) and let’s jump right in with these….what I dubbed….romperoveralls. (it’s a thang)
I’m sorry, but what the what? how cute are these little toddler leggies?
Ok, let’s talk some shop now.
I was totally and completely inspired by this spectacular outfit on Pinterest.
I couldn’t see myself making anything else after I pinned it. Luckily I had the most perfect fabric in my stash for it. (from Joanns a long time ago)
It’s a pretty basic pattern hack-I started with Dana’s shorts pattern since they were still on my cutting table and were the perfect base for the romperoveralls. (HEHE)
I cut them out for the flat front option and also curved the outside edges so it would blouse out a little more once I added elastic. I sewed them up just like normal, and then made a casing on the bottom instead of hemming and inserted some elastic.
For the bib-I had to make two actually, the first one was much too short. It ended up being like 8×8″, and I tapered it in on the top by about 1″ on each side so it would fit better. Just sewed those two pieces RST, turned, pressed, and sewed to the center of the front flat side of the shorts.
Then I made some quick straps and tried it on Ava to see where to sew them to the back. criss cross applesauce, a few buttons later, and tada!
ROMPEROVERALLS. Sorry, excited.
Oh, and added buttonholes, of course.
Also, please don’t hate me, but I totally ordered a peter pan collared shirt for Miss A because, well, to be honest, I didn’t feel like sewing one. Please forgive me. lol. #honestsewist
Ava really loved the lolly she got.
She looks straight out of a Little Golden Book about preschool or something, right?
