If last weeks Kensington Romper tickled your scrap-busting fancies, this one will overwhelm them! I bought these two fabrics years apart, but they pair together so well!
The bodice is made from a cotton chambray that I bought from The Remnant Warehouse years ago. This length of fabric has gone through so many different forms since then, and I was happy to finally use the last tiny bits for this romper. I added little pin tucks to the front of the bodice which I think turned out super cute.
The floral fabric was bought a few months ago to make some bias binding for this project. I could have made more binding from what I had left, but it was so sweet I just had to use it for the bloomer part of the romper.
The back is where my lack of fabric is really highlighted. The bloomers are really quite wide, and I didn’t have enough to make it all in the floral fabric. There was just enough of the chambray to patch it all together, and although it doesn’t look as neat as the front, I think it was a good work-around.
- Pattern brand/name/number: Baby Kensington by Little Lizard King
- Style, size: Romper, size 3 months
- Fabric: Cotton chambray from The Remnant Warehouse, floral cotton from Spotlight
- Notions: KAM snaps from Greenbeans Australia, matching thread
- Added tiny pin tucks to the front of the bodice
- Used KAM snaps for the closures
Even though bub will probably only wear this romper a few times, I feel good knowing that I have used some scraps of fabric that otherwise would have sat in my stash for ages, or eventually made its way to my floor pouf.
