Two new rompers and more Spoonflower

The photos in this post are appaling - forgive me!

I've recently finished a couple of little rompers - one for my darling baby A and one for my cousin's new(ish) baby.

I've made this pattern before (here and here), it's KwikSew 3776, and as I've said before, the pattern is great but the instructions are a bit flaky.

I used a fabric I designed myself for Baby A. It's inspired by a printed shopping bag I got a few months ago and fell in love with. It's nothing really special, but it's special to me because I know it makes Baby A's romper truly a one-off. It's trimmed in white cotton lace.

The other romper is made using a pretty double gauze I picked up on sale a few years ago, and trimmed with cream cotton lace.

This project has made me a bit sad, it'll be the last time I make a romper for any of my kids. With Baby A now 16 months she will have well and truly outgrown this pattern by next Summer.

Baby A's romper. Horrible photo!

The two rompers. Check out the difference in size. Baby A was in the small size last year - wah :(

Delicate lace trim on the tiny romper.
It looks so pretty on my darling girl.


  1. I love them both Claire - your fabric is very pretty!

  2. Those rompers are just too cute! The lace trim makes them even more special. I love little one piece outfits like this on babies.:)

  3. What a beautiful romper! I love the lace and the fabric. I just found your blog and I am signing up to follow it.
