A Sailor’s Romper

If I could I would dress my boy in vintage baby clothing all the time! There is something unique in vintage pieces or vintage inspired pieces and I love to incorporate vintage style in outfits that I make for my son. Here is a summer romper that I created back in July.

The bodice is fully lined (another thing I enjoy about sewing clothes myself) and I ended up adding piping that wasn’t called for in the original pattern. Oh, and yes that is a vintage bike as well!
