Yankee Doodle Romper

I used to think I'd have to wait until I had girls to make fun clothes for my kids, but then I found and fell in love with I am Momma-Hear Me Roar. She makes the greatest clothes for her boys! I thought it would be fun to make something cute for Jace for the 4th of July, and loved how people are using ties in casual little boy clothes. I used a tutorial that I found online for turning a t-shirt into a romper, and followed the basic premise for making a brand new romper for my little guy. I patterned it after a romper that fits him width, but is too short in length, so I made the new one a little longer (my kid is thin and long). I used up the last of the blue fabric from my star wreath (and still have no idea where it came from in the first place), felt left over from a Mr. Potato Head costume I made last week (for a VBS skit... no pictures because it looked more like a real spud crossed with the tortilla Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story 3), and some bias tape left from a changing pad I made a while back. I kept giggling as I made it and am thrilled by how it turned out. If only I could justify waking Jace up to try it on...

I didn't have enough fabric to make sleeves, so it'll be a bit of muscle-t style :)

I'll post pictures of the little guy modeling his new suit tomorrow!
