I was planning to continue working on my bombshell dress when I got distracted by this newly released pattern from Tamanegi Kobo. It’s a jumpsuit pattern called Heliodor and Tamanegi Kobo is having 20% off sale for all patterns until the end of this month. I also happened to have the perfect fabric for this romper, very soft cotton voile from Fashionable Fabrics, which is another prize from my Spring Top. You see that I had no choice other than making this cute thing!
The jumpsuit has sailor collar, elasticated waist with ties, side seam pockets and patch back pockets. As my fabric was only 2 m, I shortened the legs drastically. The back pockets are omitted and I used elastic shirrings instead of ties and elastic. The shorts part are lined and the legs are hemmed using blind hem stitch on my sewing machine.
My husband seemed very intrigued with this romper. He asked me questions like, ‘How do you get in? How do you get out?’ When I said that I would have to take the whole thing off in order to go to the toilet, he looked astounded. ‘Can’t you make it easier? How about a zipper down there?’ One would expect that a man his age should know better about the anatomy of women’s body (-_-;)
Although this romper seems to be such a complicated idea to him, he admits that it looks pretty cute nonetheless. And I should say that it is also very comfortable! It will be perfect to wear in our summer vacation in Indonesia. It has been two years since the last time we went. We’ll be leaving at the end of this week!
