Lace Petti Romper Update - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

Do you remember these posts Lace Petti Romper and Lace bows?  Go take a look if you missed them.
I got a few pictures back from the photoshoot.  I’m so excited to show you how they look on!

I used Pink, Brown and Off White Flora Lace.  There are lots of way fun colors to choose from.

I don’t know what is more popular right now, ruffles or lace!
This Lace Petti Romper combines them both!
If you have a little girl you HAVE to make her one!

I know this is one of those times I’m a little too excited, but this was easy to make and inexpensive.  I love the way it turned out too.
This Flora Lace would look amazing on a dress!

For a dress you would make it almost the same way but instead of adding 6″ to the child’s measurement you would double it.  Then just skip the part of cutting the leg holes and sewing the crotch.  EASY!

If you have a special occasion coming up this would be such a great outfit!
You could even make matching ones for a wedding.  You could have babies wear rompers and little girls wear dresses.

You could go the route I did and use it for a photography outfit.
What I love about a romper for pictures is that she can still move around and you can get shots of her crawling or what ever she decides to do.

    This cute floral lace dress is so cute. I love it’s designs. It can turn a baby into a lady-like. In designing clothes and bags, I really like incorporating laces as they have fantastic effects.

    Thank you sooo much for setting this tutorial up!! I attempted to make this romper but I ran into an issue and was wondering if you could clarify it for me. I had a little whose measurements were 20 chest 19 waist and from armpit to thigh was 12 inches. I followed ur initial blog about this and added the 6 inches an 1 1/2 inch for elastic… It came out beautiful!!!! And then the snag, tried it on baby and it was about 6-8 inches too short. They were lace shorts instead of a full length romper. I do not have babies lying around to continue to try these little things on, so would you suggest I add 6-8 inches to the length to accommodate for the fullness of baby? I want to make another one but I don’t want to waste supplies in the event it does not fit again.. Thanks for reading and once again thank you thank you for this blog!!

      Hi Sayrah! I am so sorry it didn’t turn out! I contacted the author of the tutorial with your question, and this is what she said, “Dang. I never had to account for fullness with Ashlyn haha. My only advice would be to get a shirt and shorts that fit her and measure that. Use that measurement and then add the 6 inches to the width and 1 1/2 to the length.” Does that help? I personally have not made one, so if you need more instructions, I can relay the question. Thanks for asking! – Shirley 🙂
