The Rainbow Rompers are complete!



I omitted two steps from the McCall’s M533 pattern. First, I did not use interfacing for the bodice of view A. I do not think it would have made much of a difference on the front bodice, but the neck facing sticks up like a mini ruffled collar. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.


Second, I did not elasticize the waistband. It was one of the last steps and we thought the rompers may look nice with a belt instead of a gathered waist.

The sleeves in view A turned out more tank-like than capped. Again, not a bad thing.


When we put them on, I looked ready for the beach and my romper twin looked ready for an athletic completion of sorts:


The photo may be fuzzy, but the fun-ness of the rompers is clear!


Independence Day marks three years of me and this guy:

Here we are on our first anniversary, wearing matching belts. I hand sewed those reversible stars and stripes ribbon belts. My sewing skills, and our relationship, have come a long way since then.

Happy 4th of July!

Christmas Coordination!


A tie and skirt to sparkle with Christmas cheer!

I like matching with my boyfriend:

clb made dress and matching belt!

clb made dress and coordinating (but store-bought) shirt.

In honor of family pool time at my grandparent’s, I made sundresses for all the ladies in the family.


They turned out a little shorter than planned, the perfect length for a cover up!
