Summertime is made for rompers. Throw it on, super comfy, in a no ironing knit fabric. This is the Sallie jumpsuit hack into a romper from Closet Case Files. It's so fabulous that this is my second version.
The fabric was love at first sight. Flamingos are my favorite and I love the look of Charley Harper art. The fabric is an organic knit from Birch fabrics. Its very soft, and almost like a sweatshirt material.

For this version I followed Heather's directions and made a knit binding for the v-neck. I love the trick at the end for making the v-neck pointy instead of a curve. I hemmed the sleeves and the shorts using my trusty double knit needle.
I also made sure all my flamingo stripes matched up. I bought two yards of this fabric at Rock Paper Scissors in Montclair NJ, and used up every inch of it.
This version was actually my first, and I used my precious knit fabric I bought in Italy one year ago, (ahh take me back). It's like a tropical jungle cotton knit, perfect for dog walks down the street. Rockford is being super cooperative on our walk/photoshoot here.
I made this version like the original sallie jumpsuit, the bodice is self lined, no knit binding. I liked doing the knit binding but I think this version gaps less.
Are you guys feeling rompers this summer? Do you sew things in multiples?
