First 4th of July Romper
This sweet little boy's romper has seen my 3 boys through their First (or in Andy's case, second) 4th of July! It has always been one of my favorite creations. It is 100% cotton gingham in royal blue and white. The collar and sleeves are very simple and the fullness is created by pleats, front and back. The smocked insert is "Bearly A Sailor" by Little Memories. This outfit is perfect for Independence Day, but works all summer, too! I had Andy's picture taken in it last week and I love how it turned out. The red chair is perfect and did you notice the little sailboat shoes (purchased by Katie)? The pattern for this romper is ABC Kids (formerly Yvonne Denise) Justin-Julie. I have made this pattern 3 times and it always comes out cute and is a great fit! This is a good one for people who don't like something too full on a boy, but it also has girls' versions. Give it a try! Here's a close-up of the smocking:
I want to make my kids some ME t-shirts for 4th of July. Maybe once school is out, I'll have more free time to sew! I hope SEW!!
