Pleated Romper


The pattern for this sweet little romper is self draftet, from a basic bodice i made for my little one. The pleating is improvisational. I`ve been inspired by this tutorial. In fact, i had no other option than pleating. Since i made this romper from a shirt i bought at the streetmarket in italy last month. There was just nomore fabric left. So you have to go with what you have, right? It was a happy coincidence, the pleating adds a special touch to the bodice. I`m normally not the ruffle typ. But in this case, i like it. I`m pleased whit the result. My sweet little beanburger is quite tall for her 8 months. I had to add some lenght. And because there was no fabric left. I had to attach a solid blue strip to the bodice.


For easy diapper changing, i installed some snaps. The Romper is fully lined whit a nice blue cotton, because the fabric was very lightwight and slightly see-through.


In the back a went for snaps too. So it`s easy to get it on and off. My baby doesn`t really like to shift cloths. It has to go fast. I`m sure this little romper will get widely used this sommer.
