First of all, I am so excited for Amy to be having baby number 2! And when she asked if I wanted to guest post, I knew exactly what I wanted to share.
You see – I have a bunch of friends having babies right now. The amount of baby showers / announcements I get in the mail is downright funny. Being the avid sewist that I am, this means I get to make clothes for all of these little cutie patooties.
You can whip out a bunch of these in very little time, which makes it ideal for gifts! And by using T Shirts – they are extra comfy for baby’s soft skin.
To make these quick and easy rompers, you will need the pattern found HERE. (Size 6 Mo.)
Once you have it printed out, cut out the pattern pieces using a T Shirt. Be sure to line up the bottom of the pattern with the T Shirt hem bottom. If you want it to be capri length, simply line up the hem of the shirt shorter than the pattern (like in the photo below).
If you want a more bubble looking romper…
Add bias trim to top of neckline on front and back piece…
Line up the front and back pieces right sides together, and sew along outer edges…
You will want your bias tape to be longer that what is in the image below, so you can tie them up in cute bows at the shoulders…
I would recommend 10″ straps for easy tying.
Thanks so much for having me Amy, and good luck with your second baby! I cannot wait to meet her (or is it a him???).
