I feel like the world can be divided into those obsessed with rompers and those who just can't wrap their heads around the fascination - I mean 'how the heck are you supposed to PEE in that thing???'
I'll admit that I was firmly in camp #2 for all of my adult life. I mean I got that they were cute. I saw the draw in a one piece outfit that you could just throw on and run out the door. And I'll admit that I love comfy summer outfits where I can sit on the ground, bend over, and chase kids without fear of flashing the neighborhood. But rompers...well, I'd tried them on in stores and they NEVER fit right. And I just couldn't wrap my head around the whole going to the bathroom thing, and so I said - 'Nope, not for me.'
That is, until I decided to design one.
In designing a romper, I was able to give all the comfort I wanted combined with all the style and versatility I yearned for. PLUS, I could combine sizes (I'm a L on top and an XL on bottom - thus the store stuff never fitting anywhere close to right) which resulted in a perfect fit every time. And that whole bathroom thing...it really doesn't bother me at all, HA!
So for those of you in need of some summer comfort sews - follow the Romp On Blog Tour with us all this week to get some great inspiration on sewing rompers for yourself and your kiddos. And if that whole bathroom thing STILL has you doubting this fashion trend, there will be plenty of dresses and separates along the tour from these same patterns. So much versatility, so little time.
All rompers will be 20% off all week long!!!
Check out the first three stops on this tour today:
