Mermaid Baby

A few weeks ago a friend of mine came over for Jessica’s Sewing Boot Camp. Truth is she did not need my help. She only lacked the confidence she needed to start whipping out endless outfits. (And she’s made a ton of stuff in the last 3 weeks!) But the high light of my day was making this romper.

Oh my word. Was this really 3 weeks ago? Indeed it was. Baby is very nearly crawling now.

The pattern is the Hummingbird Romper from Rabbit Rabbit Creation. Tiny baby is tiny and even at 7 months old she is swimming in the 6 month size. But it should also fit her well in the heat that will be descending on Southern California any day now.

The pattern was a snap to put together. The hardest part was trying to attach the pants along the narrow strip at the back below the elastic. That is probably easier on the larger sizes, but a tiny bit tricky on the smaller sizes.

The fabric is from the ridiculously cute Saltwater from Riley Blake Designs. These are my two favorite prints from the collection and I bought just enough to make a little something for the Charlie. I should have bought more.

As for the romper pattern, I see more of those in her future. I have 1 yard each of the Hilltop line from Dear Stella and I think a romper would be a fun use of a couple of those fabrics.
