A Romper/Skort for a Little Girl

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my most recent project, a little girl’s romper/skort from the late 60′s. I used Simplicity’s 8221 from 1969.

The pattern was really easy so I whipped it up in flash! However, I did take a couple days to sew the rick rack trimming; it likes to keep fraying /: Do you have any tips on sewing rick rack?

If the ends are fraying, you could snip them with pinking shears and use Fray Check on them.
Cute romper! I think the rick rack looks really sweet.

Either apply fray check to the ends or use a lighter on the ends to seal it.
