Romper Inspiration

My jumpsuit is almost finished. Gah! Its a treat! I'm very excited about it. I've had Simplicity 6904 for sometime now, having chanced upon it at the thrift last year. I forgot to say in my last post on the subject, that I'm making the shorts version - sheesh! its too hot to wear pants these days. I love the heat, especially Utah's dry heat,  but I will admit that I like the heat better in garments that keep me cool - rompers/jumpsuits, shorts, skirts, tanks, etc. I spent a good deal of time over the weekend gathering some romper inspiration and you can see the full inspiration board over on my pinterest. I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites with you today!

Lizah Summer Jumpsuit / Vintage Romper/Jumpsuit

Probably one of the most inspiring parts about sewing your own fashion is seeing other's who have sewn their own and worn it. Two of my favorites from Burda Style, the image on the left reminds me a little of my own version, but in denim! Love the bust detail! And on the right, a great use of a small printed fabric and a great cut for this lady's figure, plus a very cool way to beat the heat.

Pins & Needles Bow Strapless Romper / Pacific Romper

Aren't these next two just lovely? Again, I adore the bust detailing on the red romper and the plaid one is such a lovely design. I love how the waist is accented with that diamond panel.

I love the color of the romper on the left and paired with that skinny belt, its totally fab. The one on the right is so cute all dressed up with that red and white stripe - and again the bust detailing is super fun.

These are just a few of my favorites. All of the inspiration I gathered on my pinterest board (which BTW I'm a fairly new member, and can I say, FUN!) has given me numerous ideas with a few finishing touches I'll be adding to my romper. I actually bought a few more romper patterns, I was just on such a roll and I really do mean to make up at least one more this summer. I do hope you've enjoyed some of my romper ramblings here. Happy Monday!
