As the title says, this was made using Lindsay’s pattern (The Cottage Home) that just came out. It’s called the Shortcake Reversible Romper and Dress. I obviously chose the romper and I made it a size 4T, just in case, so it would fit her next summer. Since B just turned 3 in September, I think it would have been better to make the 3T. But now it will just be worn for a lot longer!
The pattern was very professionally made and so easy to understand! Lindsay did a great job on it! I love that there are no exposed seams since it is reversible. I also loved that there are great pictures to go along with each step—don’t we all wish the store-bought patterns would do the same?!
So you know those photo shoots that don’t go very well? This was definitely one of them, but it could have to do with the fact that it was FAH-REEEEEZING while taking these. So even with the layers under this great reversible romper pattern, B acted like she was frozen in time. She would barely budge and would only take tiny teeny weeny baby steps when I asked her to do something different. It was kind of funny actually, but I’m sorry for the lack of better pictures! But that’s also why you don’t see the reversed side—I just couldn’t put B through taking it off of her and reversing it in such cold weather! But you can see what fabric I used in the first picture on the shoulder tie.
