Peacock tail

I came across this sweet Old Navy romper while deep in a Pinterest vortex the other day.

It reminded me that I wanted to make Puddle a romper for the summer. And that I wanted to make one with a frilly bum.

An Etsy search produced this simple romper pattern by Piper's Girls (US $9.95 - not a PDF pattern).

The pattern was pretty simple. But the instructions were not.

Sewing the romper was a little like putting Ikea furniture together.  Along with fabric and a sewing machine, you need your thinking-cap or a little dumb luck.

If you're a novice sewer and would like to make try this pattern, I would suggest having a intermediate-sewer friend on speed-dial.

The finished product is hysterical however. The moments of irritation over the vague instructions were well worth it.

Here' Puddle shaking her tail feather.
