At the end of the summer I picked up these rompers at Wal-mart. Apparently these short little numbers weren't big sellers, but I benefited and was able to get them for ONE DOLLAR a piece. Now don't worry I didn't try to fit into them and parade around town. I simply bought them for the material, the cute little details, and of course the buttons. Has anyone else noticed how expensive buttons can be?
Anyway, I finally got around to doing a bit of a refashion on this romper. It was so simple to turn this romper (with 1" shorts-YIKES), into a tank top.
All that I had to do was slit the shorts up the center seams....
Cut off the whole one and a half inches of fabric that was supposed to serve as shorts,
and hem the seam. I used a twin needle for this step and am very pleased with the results.
|The barn was tipping over and I was doing my part (along with the pole and board) to keep it standing.|
It was a ten minute/one dollar refashion. I like that the top has a bit of elastic at the waist, and I love the bow detail in the back.
I have yet to refashion the solid green or blue stripe rompers. Any great ideas? I just love the kelly green and ultra marine blue colors.
I'll be linking up here today! Thanks for visiting.
