Next, we have Kristen Smith who has Hacked the All The Bells and Whistles into the most adorable Summer Romper - I mean, can you even!?!?!?!?  The fabric is amazing and she's got all the info you need to pull this off yourself.  Swoon!!!!

'Summer sewing for kids is frequently hard for me, since our summer is often only a few months long at best. We've even been known to get SNOW! I know, it's heartbreaking.

This summer though, I've had the summer sewing bug hard. I really loved the collar on the All the Bells and Whistles top, and I'm such a sucker for bloomers on little girls. I was feeling the need to combine these options for my best friends little girl, since I have three boys. She and I are total '80's kids, from Popples to Transformers, we loved everything. So the need was there to share this with M. 

Since I had promised to make a romper for M, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and make a romper from the All the Bells and Whistles top and tunic. It's going to be epic right? Cue Popples! After searching WinterWearDesignsFun group for images of Tout de Suit Bloomers too, I took the bodice from All the Bells and Whistles, and made a bunch of lines and curves, hacked off the collar corners, took some measurements and calculations and came up with a plan and eventually an extension of the pattern using the leg opening from the Tout De Suit as a guide..

The end result, my friend and I are so pleased with. And M looks adorbs. Win win!!'

Make sure to stick with us all week long for sewing inspiration, pattern hacks, and tutorials about how to get the most out of your summer sewing!!!
