T-shirt Romper

Book:  Lockstitch Baby
Size:  70 cm
Fabric:  size L men's T

This one also started out as a T-shirt but this baby needed something cool for summer.  The romper was not as quick as the pull on pants but I'm very happy with the slim fit.  The placket is a bit messy and at that point I was kind of wishing I could read Japanese but got through it.   This is a good pattern for refashioning big T's into baby stuff.

And if you want to match your baby, here's a great tutorial  for re-fashioning a large boxy T for yourself.


  1. you are so lucky to have great thrift stores close by. With your vision and sewing technique, you come with such cute clothes. I love summer rompers for little boys, and you look very pretty in that picture.

  2. Hi there! I've tagged you in a kind of questions & answers for sewers game - feel free to ignore if you like! Kathryn

  3. Hello!
    I am glad to have found your blog as I am also making dresses from some Japanese books for my little daughter (nearly 1 year old). So far I have made 2 dresses from Cucito Magazine. I am working on a Peter Pan collared dress from 'Children Liberty Book now'. I will blog-line your blog for reference.


  4. Hey - where have I been?! I just went to your family blog to leave a note about my new quilting blog, and noticed this link. What a great blog - I'd been wondering where all your sewing creations were going! Very nice.

    Oh - my new blog:
