That's uber-cute!  It would totally make a great swimsuit cover up, you should enter it here:  http://craftzine.com/swimsuitcoverup/

SooStark:  between step 2 and 3 all you are doing is grabbing the torso bit of your garment along the top unfinished edge and rotating it so the side seams you just sewed are in the center front and center back instead of on the left and right.  the leg part will work itself out if you do this and then straighten out all the fabric.  if you actually make a mock-up and try to follow the directions it should make more sense, i promise.  Smiley 

SewJayded: thanks so much for the compliment and the tip!  i never even heard of that contest before and i will definitely look into entering!  Cheesy

Okay, I just read all the comments, and I'll revise mine- wear it out if you're in a city that's fashion-forward enough to handle it!  I'm in Montreal, where everyone just wears whatever they want and no one minds, and rompers are all over the place.  But I can understand how this wouldn't go over as well in other cities.

Seriously though, so wonderfully cute.  You did a great job and you look so great in these!

This is just too cute! Thank you for posting a tutorial - I am going to try it out. I definitely can't wear something like that out, but in the house would be great. Wink

Gorgeous, I've been wanting to make a romper! I'd totally wear one to just about anywhere with wedges and a cute cardigan over it maybe. Then again, I wear pretty much anything I feel comfortable in, I like to take risks :p If you have enough confidence, you can pull just about anything off.

Thanks SO MUCH for the tutorial! After I finish all my recons of assorted vintage, this will definitely be one of my first sewing projects I attempt. I just have to wrap my head around how to get from step 2 to 3 Cheesy

Your tutorial was pretty easy to follow. Thanks! I did have some trouble with step #5, just not quite getting how to do all that doubling of the fabric, so I skipped it since I was just making a "test" out of some cheap fabric I had laying around. It worked and turned out cute Smiley

I think the fact that it is a romper does make it very inside-only -- but if you slipped a skirt over it, I think it would be an adorable way to make it outside-safe (and then you could let your skirt blow in the wind and be like hey, it's not like I'm showing my underwear XD)! Totally cute either ways.

True story.

And yeah, the tutorial one could totally be a bathing suit. Wonderful work.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Lilseed, thanks for posting how yours turned out!  It's super cute!  Step 5...basically what you are doing with the folded over band, is taking a long rectangular piece of material and folding it in half hot dog ways, with the fashion side out.  Then you are laying it down on the fashion side of the romper top, lining up all the raw edges (raw top edge of the romper top piece, and the two raw edges from the long hot dog folded piece of material).  You sew all the raw edges together, going all the way around the romper.  Then you join the short edges of the band together (or you can do it beforehand) and you flip it up--voila, the seam is hidden on the inside, and the top gets additional support from multiple layers of material.  Does that make sense?  I believe there are a few tutorials here on craftster about it as well.
