Calico Rompers

Earlier this summer I sewed two calico rompers for Jemimah using McCall's 7107. Is is an easy and adorable pattern. I love the added detail of little pockets, so sweet!
                      I found the perfect little flower buttons in my collection to coordinate with the fabrics.
McCall's 7107 did not include a peter pan collar, so I used a collar from another baby pattern. I embroidered a rose bullion and leaves on the collars in colors to match the flowers in the fabric. I do enjoy seeing little embroidered collars on baby clothes!
Snaps make for easy diaper changes. In the future I would like to invest in a proper snap setting tool, as I found my hand sewn snaps don't stay snapped as securely as would like, especially when my little one is crawling.
Here is my little darling wearing her romper in our garden last month. I think she has enjoyed wearing her rompers almost as much as I enjoyed sewing them, and seeing her wear them. : )

  1. Oh my ~ these are just adorable! I just love the Peter Pan collars and the little flowers and lace edging. It brings back such memories of the many dresses I sewed for my girls when they were growing up. Little empire top dresses with Peter Pan collars are so cute. The fabrics are so dainty too. She's just precious! :-) You sew beautifully.

  7. Your sewing is beautiful Sarah. I love the rompers, you just can't buy them in England anymore so have to make them or use vintage ones.

  11. Those are so sweet. :-) When my sister-in-law was wondering what to make for cool play clothes for their 10 year old daughter (they live in a very warm climate) I recommended some rompers. They do make nice, loose-fitting play clothes for active girls.
