Hello all! I hope everyone’s week got off to a great start. I finished my Romper/Playsuit project last night and I wanted to share it as I am really proud of it. I think this is due to the fact that the interior looks great, I hate when a piece is beautiful on the outside but all kinds of a hot mess inside….like so bad I’m embarrassed to take it to the dry cleaner. Thankfully this is not the case here, though this garment will never need to go to the dry cleaner I can still enjoy the beauty within

Here are a couple pictures:

This is so beautiful, everything from the fabric, to the pattern, to the inside! I need to start working on making the insides of my garments nice and clean, it just makes clothes so much more special.

Thanks so much Nina. It looks a bit squatty on the hanger but I am happy with the insides, I have another project that I am working on and the insides look a mess.

I love the print, and you're right– the insides are so neat! I'm actually working on the same romper right now, but it's not as nice as yours! :)
