I love, love rompers on little girls, but let's be honest, while still wearing diapers they are a bit of a pain! I have seen the faux romper popping up around the web recently and knew that would be my solution. The twins each have a romper from Target and I absolutely hate how their diapers hang out the bottom if the are at all wet. Plus, this way I could have two stand alone pieces too.
I used a chambray with neon piping that I found the other day at my local store, total score because I had actually been looking on etsy for some (piping) the day before. They also had yellow and orange, I may have to go back:)
I used the Oliver + S popover sundress shortened to a top with an added elastic casing at the hem line, size 2. The shorts are Elegance and Elephants bubble pocket shorts size 18m/2t.
My only complaint with the shorts pattern is that the main shorts have a curved waist but she has you draft a rectangle for the waistband facing. I was too lazy this time, but next time I will draft a curved piece instead. Also, not a big fan of having to draft my own pieces in general, (especially when spending a decent amount on a pattern) and you have to do the waistband, pocket and leg cuffs.
Pretty cute result, right? Elizabeth wore it yesterday and I think I need to add a little elastic to the top hem, she has a bigger belly than Georgia:)
She seems to like it!
