Several months ago I had a dream I was at a store and I saw a romper with a black sweetheart top and ugly/pretty floral bubble shorts.  When I woke up I thought "Hm... it's not stealing the design if I DREAM it..." 


It has pockets!!!!

It took me a while to find the right fabric but I'm pretty pleased with it!  I think I'm going to make more with different fabrics and maybe sleeves.  *oh my!*

It was also my first attempt at draping.  I've always been scared but after checking out a few how-to videos it's surprisingly easy.  The top is a pattern I've used before and the shorts are 100% draped.  Here you can see the pleating details of the front and back..


later kittens,

I'm not a fan of rompers, but that's really cute.
