Checked Vintage Romper

It's hard to pick out favorite items from an entire year of sewing but this romper, made at the end of the year, would make the list.

Giant checks + vintage overalls + enthusiastic 2 year old = happy sewist.

The overalls are from a 1975 Simplicity pattern. The legs are fairly wide, but not very bell-shaped. The bodice has a good-sized facing, which is always nice. I've been tracing some Burdas the last few nights, rolling my eyes at the teeny tiny facings, wondering if I will even use them.

Molly loves them, although at her age I think she'd be excited about anything I made her. Every two year old should have "romper" in her vocabulary, no?

I'd like to make the shortall version this summer. And wouldn't it look cute with a pointy collared blouse underneath?

  5. Awwww, so sweet! I love rompers - I just wish they didn't grow out of wanting them. You matched the plaid ever so well.

  6. Very cute! And like others, I am highly impressed with your plaid matching, especially on an item for a two year old!

  7. Adorable! Girl and Romper, both. Is that the original hand-on-hips modelling pose? Way to go!

  8. I absolutely love this romper! I love overalls, and I would totally wear this exact same thing in my size! Too cute!
