It’s Romper Week! Raeanna of Sewing Mama Raeanna organized this fun week of all rompers, all the time, and invited me to sew along. I had my Mom look around and see if she could find any pictures of me in a romper but the only ones she came up with were not my style! So I thought I’d sew ahead for the 4th of July and mashed together two patterns to make a raglan romper.

I won’t tease you – check out this vintage romper goodness! My Mom made it for me herself.
Rompers seem to end at size 24 months but I don’t know why; this looks so comfy and provided lots of comfy room for toddler shenanigans.
My first attempt at tinkering with the Peek-a-boo Lazy Days Romper* pattern was with a camera applique for Project Run & Play, but I decided the neckline was a little wide. So, I added in my very favorite top pattern, the See Kate Sew recess raglan.
The red is an upcycled t-shirt and the front is Euro knit purchased from a Facebook sale group. I love the quality, it is so soft and stretchy. I added a fussy-cut star to cover up a tag that I couldn’t cut around; I like that it adds a bit of fun to the back.
The Euro knit presses so well; top stitching is usually my least favorite step but it was smooth and easy on this outfit.
What toddler photoshoot would be complete without a stick?
I had a lot of fun sewing for romper week!
