As with most of my projects, this one too stemmed from a problem. Zander’s birthday party this year was Hawaiian themed and of course, I had nothing to wear.
With the Fall and Winter months ahead, it was pretty hard to find anything “Summary”, much less Hawaiian – and so my mission began… I needed something that was:
1. Hawaiian themed
2. Breathable, since it was a hot day and the party was outside
3. Easy to maneuver in, since I’d be running around hosting, carrying Z and of course, jumping in the bounce house
I actually picked up this fabric months ago in an LA fabric store in the rummage pile. Coincidentally, I bought it with full intention of making a romper – one day. Z’s birthday was the kick-in-the-butt I needed to make it happen.
I gave myself 1 night to complete the outfit, start to finish. It took me 3hrs and costs $3 in materials – score!
Here are instructions on how to make one for yourself:
- The top is 2 square pieces, front and back – elastic around the top.
- For the bottom, I used my loose fitting pajama pants as a pattern.
- Top and bottom are sewn together and the seam is covered by the belt.
And there you have it. A summer outfit that’s cute AND practical. Hope this inspires you to take on those projects you’ve been putting off, too!
