I told you how much I loved the experience of turning my huge, ten-month-old calendar shirt into Eliot’s teeny tiny romper. Here’s a few photos…it’s not a real tutorial, but gives you an idea of the process.
I also have some photos of how I turned a Milo-sized tee into Eliot’s iFly romper for my dad’s party. As soon as I figure out how to download them from my MobileMe gallery (where they are since my camera battery ran out on the trip and I borrowed my dad’s camera, uploading all my photos to my mom’s computer and saving them on MobileMe as I went…might have been a bad idea?) I’ll post them.
Anyway, here’s the skinny:
Big, huge shirt. Teeny tiny romper.
( I made a point of including the 1 and the 40 on the romper. He sure enjoyed every bit of womb time he got!)
Draw a line about half an inch from the sides of the romper. Follow the armhole line up to make a onesie shoulder.
Use the short-sleeves of the tee to have finished long-sleeves on the romper.
Oh, then you just stitch it all together, and add some snaps.
Badda Bing, Badda Boom.
He wore it twice before he got too big, but I’m so happy to have it as a keepsake.
In his size, not mine!
