Anyways, the point of telling you all that is to tell you how extremely proud of myself I am for recreating this super-cute Kelly's Kids Vintage Romper.
They are listed on the Kelly's Kids website for $48.00 and the monogram is an additional $10. Cute, right?
Well, I found a pattern from Mud Puddles and Ruffles on Etsy for this outfit ($10) and had to buy it!
I spent around $10 in fabric and had the ribbon already. Another dollar or two on the buttons and elastic. I own my own embroidery machine, so the monogram was free. So add that to the cost of the pattern, and I made it myself for around $22.
Now, that being said, it was a little time-consuming, and my time is valuable as I have two small children. Also, the pattern needed some tweaking. The shorts were way too big and I had to take a few inches off the width, and then still gather them more than was suggested. As long as you have the measurements for the child you are making them for, it's not a big deal.
So, here is my version...
And my little angel hunting Easter eggs in it!
So, you can now make your own, or (if you prefer) I can make one for you! I can do any color seersucker for the shorts and straps, any color ribbon, and any color monogram. Just send me a message on my Facebook business page Just Grin and Wear It telling me you want one, what size, what color, and I'll just get a few measurements from you! My version is $40 plus $3.99 shipping.
