Chalk and Paint Romper

 Hi Guys! I’m so excited to be participating in Sew Caroline‘s Chalk and Paint Blog Tour today! Caroline’s 3rd and newest fabric line, Chalk and Paint is full of inspiration with it’s artsy and imaginative brush strokes and whimsical yet soft lines. It’s also no secret how much I love the quality of Art Gallery Fabric, it is always so soft and buttery!

When I saw the line I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it! I have had the City Girl Romper on my to-sew list forever and I felt like it was the perfect match. How adorable are the little sunsuit style shorts on this romper?!

I fell in love with this fabric because I love the use of mint with the bright pink and the sienna color, super unexpected but such a fun combo. The back calls for rope/ribbon and last summer I bought a pair of shorts for myself and the tassels drove me crazy so I cut them off and threw them in my ribbon box. They were not only the perfect shade but when I measured them they were the perfect length to the inch!! SEW meant to be! I love it when stuff like that happens.

The romper. I LOVE rompers on babies, I mean is there anything cuter? Here in Texas it is definitely a must for spring and summer. It was a pretty easy sew and only took me a few hours. The top is fully lined and I love the bias tape binding on the inside of the legs. I had never used that technique before and I want to use it all the time now haha! You can kind of see it peeking out in some spots and I love that. Also… pleats and pockets… do I really need to say anymore? There are a few different lengths and size options but I obviously had to choose the little shorties for this little shorty :)

And it looks like Little Miss Sassy is really getting the hang of modeling for my blog pictures haha! Work it girl. She is actually so busy that it is getting harder and harder to even get a still image of her. Hopefully one day she understands how lucky she is to have the worlds most amazing one-of-a-kind wardrobe!
