Chevron Romper

I'm so in love with how this turned out!

I've been dreaming about these little rompers for some time now but just haven't had the time to figure it out.

When I found this chevron fabric at Hancocks I just knew I had to have it and made it that very same day... seriously I think I made it within an hour of coming home from the fabric store... obsessive much?

It's honestly been a couple of weeks now since I've made it but I haven't had much luck getting pictures of it.  Livi is quite possibly the dirtiest girl I've ever known.  And who would be surprised by that?  She has 4 brothers!

The first time she put it on, I ran to get the camera and had to find the battery.  By the time I was ready to go the darling little girl and matching outfit were covered in East Texas red dirt.

The stuff is awful!

We decided to try again a day or so later but before I could get any pictures worth saving she had a potty accident.  Boo.

This time around I decided to get the pictures (ANY PICTURES!) as soon as I could so ignore the dirty grimy look on the front of the shirt and her face... she's my beautiful little mess.

Despite the fact that I'm hosting a destash competition right now I just bought a bunch of super cute fabrics so I can make her a ton of these!  Should I nix the elastic on the shorts and cuff them instead?



  1. It looks cute as-is, but I would try it without the elastic in the legs and see how it looks. It might be more comfortable for rough-housing with big brothers. :)

  2. So adorable! I love the elastic, but if you are doing multiples I would do some with and some without for some variety. I am making a romper with some of the fabric I got yesterday too! Thanks for linking to my Sew Crafty Saturday Party !

  3. I love it. Rompers are one of my favorite clothing items ever. I love the fabric too, It is so cheery.

  4. I love this fabric (and your super awesome blog) I'm so following you~ :)

    Have a great afternoon!
