Matching Rompers – Because I’m Now Obsessed

Once Emma and I debuted matching outfits, there was no going back. I’m not obsessed with us matching at all, it’s just that, well yeah, I am.  It’s so fun. And, how long is she going to want to match me? Probably not forever. So I’m going to eat it up while I can.

Dresses-11Because of my height, I have NEVER been successful at buying a ready to wear romper.  I have not tried on one romper that hasn’t given me camel toe.  So attractive…  So I bought the M4M Mama Lea. I love the simple dolman style top and that it has the options for pockets. I also love that it has the option for a dress or tunic!  M4M has several rompers but I have to mention, I am always looking for something I can wear a normal bra with. I despise strapless bras – and yes I have tried them all. My girls just don’t stay up.  I digress…I was so excited to get started on this project.  I ordered a double brushed poly from Surge Fabric Shop from Etsy specifically with this romper in mind. Dresses-15.jpgThis romper was really quick to whip up. It was my first time working with double brushed poly but I found it to be very nice to work with.  The only hang up was trying to get the settings right for my double needle.  I ended up needing a top tension of about 8 and changed my bobbin tension to be very loose.  I have since purchased a new bobbin case so I don’t have to keep screwing and unscrewing my bobbin screw for different stitches.  I can just replace the whole case.Dresses-20Emma’s romper is one of my favorites.  I know there is a love hate relationship out there for the Brindille & Twig harem coverall, but after a few adjustments, it has come to be one of my favorite things for her.  I love that there are no snaps.  Many think this makes for a difficult diaper change but I have found it to be quick and easy.  I know it’s comfortable for her with no closures, elastic or pulling over the head!
