right now I'm working on crocheting a romper. I'm working on it from the bottom up and I'm a little over half way done with the shorts part. it's striped in different colors of blue and purple. ok so now my question.. I don't know how I want to do the top part. I want it to look chic and not childish. AND I'm busty so I want to be able to get it on and off easily. and I don't have a zipper and would prefer not to use one but might consider it.
something cute and chic like Katy Perry. straps are a must. and also what kind of shoes do you wear with something like this? (w/o heels Smiley )

what if you made a button up front?  or lace-up.  i think buttoning/unbuttoning would be easier than the lacing though.  you could find some very cute buttons to use too.

as for shoes... if you don't want to wear heels & you want to be katy perry cute, i'd recommend ballet flats or something similar.  i also see a knee-high pair of lace-up sneakers if you happen to have a matching pair.

I should mention that I happen to be 5'10 and not only do I not need heels I am far to clumsy to wear them.
I'm thinking about buttons. I'll have to look to see if I have enough matching ones.

You should look into pin-up tops and look to them for inspiration. Maybe you could even just crochet it across but then after bunch it up in the front (Idk how to explain it)
And shoes to wear, I recommend ballet flats or something flat like that (maybe even connies, but only if they're similar colors)

I post things like this in my blog too!
