Knock It Off: The Polo Romper

I’m so excited to be part of Knock It Off over at Elegance & Elephants!
All month long bloggers have been sharing their DIY versions of their favorite kids fashions and today it’s my turn!

I LOVE a good knock-off and I jumped at the chance to make something for my little man. When designing for babies I like things to be simple and comfortable with just a touch of class. When I saw this polo romper on the Macys website I knew it was perfect! 
It’s the perfect outfit for my rough and tumble boy. It’s super comfortable but he still looks put together. You know as opposed to when I let him run wild in just a diaper 🙂

This was so easy to make! For the fabric I used a XXXL tee off the 50 cent rack at Salvation Army (my favorite source for knits!) and some scraps of white knit from my stash. 
For the pattern I mashed up the Classic Polo and the Lazy Day Romper (on sale for just $4 today only!). I just used the top half of the polo and taped it right on top of the romper. The polo was just a tad wider than the romper so I just smoothed out that line when I cut it out. 

One “frankenpattern”, one afternoon, and one happy boy 🙂
Happy Sewing 🙂

  1. This is wonderful! I was planning to try to hack some sleeves and possibly a collar for the Lazy Days Romper … never would have thought to stick the Classic Polo pattern on for the top (which I even own … duh! how easy!?). Thanks so much for the great idea!
