Ever since I made the test version of the Top Knot I knew I had to make the romper version as well and the tour just gave me the perfect excuse. 😉 I don’t think I need to say how glad I am to be among such talented ladies and trust me, you are about to see some great versions of the Top Knot!
To make the Tour even more interesting, Gabriela divided the days in themes. Loved the idea!
As you guessed by now I went with the theme print or trim mixing that, in my case, is print and trim.
I made the romper for F because she loves to play but doesn’t like to end up untidy or showing something she is not supposed to and she is very insistent in this regard!
Once again, I made a size 6 for height with size 4 for width and the extra work to adjust sizes is totally worth it, the fit is great! Also, the instructions to adjust between sizes are so helpful. I used to be afraid of blending sizes and mess up everything. You know pieces not matching and so on. But since I made the test version I lost that fear. I still have others!
To go with the theme print mixing, I used a dotted linen from here for main fabric and Liberty Tana Lawn in Betsy pastel for the details.
And to go with the trim part of the theme I made piping for the pockets and added a little bow at waistband at the front. I love how the Liberty fabric contrasts but at the same time some of the flowers match the colour of the main fabric.
This is how happy F feels about her new romper! 🙂
