Creation: Sommer Romper
Materials Used: Foxgloves Navy Poplin, Stem Dot Pink Poplin, Rain Broadcloth & 5mm natural lace
The Visionary: Terra at Mama Says Sew!
Our Thoughts: We love Terra's choice of prints with the Foxgloves Navy and Stem Dot Pink poplins, complimented by a Rain broadcloth lining. Not to mention the pattern is adorable!
I love trying out fabric from Organic Cotton Plus. The navy fabric I used for this romper is probably my favorite that I've tried from them so far. I love the print, and it's so soft! There is also a similar print that I really wanted to try that looks like it's from the same line. It's called Fox in the Foxgloves.
My daughter loved it too! She said it was really comfortable. I'm glad she likes it, but I'm a little jealous! I'd love to have something made out of this fabric for me.
I think the contrast fabric I used for the yoke is the same line. It felt a little different to me-I didn't think it was quite as soft as the navy fabric-but it makes a good coordinate.
I lined it with a turquoise broadcloth that matched the light blue flowers in the main fabric's print. I also tried some of their lace to add a little trim to the shorts and between the bodice and the contrast yoke. It was a little tricky to add because the lace was so small and thin, but I love the way it looks so delicate and pretty.
The pattern is the Sommer Romper from Violette Field Threads.
