Rompin' in my Repurpose

My McCalls romper is done!  I finished the zipper and hand sewing last night.  I LOVE it.

It even looks good inside out!

It was 91 degrees when I got home from work today, so I had the perfect excuse to throw it on and romp around.  I'm really proud of this project.  It fits amazingly well, and I'm so happy I gave new life to a piece of fabric I regretted ruining.  It's super short, but I am generally not self-conscious and will wear anything, so I'm hoping I can take this little number out in public a couple times.  I'm thinking a music fest on a hot day or maybe a summer bbq or just a day of relaxing in the yard.

  4. Totally sensational. Are they actually reversable or just beautifully lined?

  5. It looks great! It looks really comfy for hot weather too.

    I can almost imagine you making a cute skirt to wear over it to make it "modest" then whipping the skirt off to have some fun!

  8. This has turned out beautifully, I'd love to give the pattern a go! The inside is so neat it could be reversible!

  10. It's gorgeous and you could always make up a little overskirt (a bit like the playsuit/dress in your post on May 20th) if you were feeling a bit self-conscience(although I don't know why, your legs are amazing).
