Little Amy started crawling, so I wanted to make something that would hide the view of her diaper without being tight at her waist. It is summer here and she gets very hot, I did not want to make pants or onesie dresses that would make her sweat. While netsurfing, I saw a  'garden romper" at babybean vintage, and thought wow! I can do that! so I decided to make something like that..

I traced a denim romper for the chest and bum dimensions, and found that the back is bigger than the front. So I made a newspaper pattern, stitched it out and guess what! It fits!

I had so much fun making it, and Ive been thinking about making a picture-tutorial for a long time now, so I made another romper and made a pictorial too.

This is my first tutorial, so please point out any mistakes..
