Skirt into a Romper

26 Feb

This skirt came from the discard pile out front of our building’s entryway.

It was a really cute skirt but the zipper was terribly broken.

It laid around the apartment for a few weeks until I went to baby Gap for inspiration.

I saw this gap kids jumper priced at $26.95 and then I used the old skirt to make my own!!!
Let me tell you that no one was more surprised than myself that this actually worked! ย I was so excited about it. Aleah really liked wearing it (she is a comfy freak) and didn’t want to take it off.

    Yes, she most definitely is a major ham for the camera! I have no idea where she gets it! Terry, I would love to see anything you can remake for your granddaughter.
    Cheri, no big deal on the repeat, I am still figuring all this stuff out and sometimes it just doesn’t cooperate. Tonia and Becky, thanks guys!
