I wield my own hammer

I made this little romper for Penny. It’s a McCall’s 2141. I took a picture of the pattern so you can see the shape of the outfit since Penny isn’t standing yet. Seated pictures make it tricky to tell what an outfit looks like! As you can see, the pattern calls for snaps at the crotch. I would normally sew those by hand but I braved the hammer in snap fasteners this time.
I am so pleased with the look! It is much more professional looking and they feel more rugged. And while I thought about it, I did not chicken out and ask my husband to put them in. Yes, I punctured the outfit with sharp metal spikes and then wielded my own hammer. It was easier than I thought and now I feel silly for being chicken. Here she is, in her new romper made with Windham House’s Tulips in Petal from the Scribbles line.
I couldn’t decide which front view was cuter so I included two.
And here is the back. I used three flower shaped buttons and there is a tie at the waist. One of my favorite features of the pattern is the hemline. It curves up to the side seams.
I think I will have to make one more of these. It is the perfect spring into summer outfit.
