Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop Summer Tour: Adelaide Vintage Romper

See my full disclosure policy here.

Pattern was provided for free to participate in the blog tour.

Today I am really excited to be sharing the Adelaide Vintage Romper as part of the Peek-a-Boo pattern shop summer tour. Make sure you read all the way down. There is a fantastic giveaway at the end!

I absolutely love this romper. When it first came out, I knew that I had to have it, so I was thrilled when I had the chance to test it out for the summer tour. I love rompers period, and this is such a cute take on the basic romper.

I love the shirring on the back. It gives detail and makes for easy dressing. The romper ties in the back, but there are also instructions for adding a snap for easier on and off.

And then there is the front, with the adorable collar and all that lovely piping detail. The piping is optional, but I really love how it makes everything pop. I've never sewn with piping before, and I was surprised at how easy it was.
And this romper passes the most important test for children's clothing-the wearability test. It was perfect for climbing trees. She spent most of the time up in the tree saying "Oooh, oooh, ahh, ahh."  Little monkey.

I really like the way Amy puts her PDF patterns together. They aren't tiled like a lot of other PDF patterns, which I find helpful. With the tiling method, if you're off on one spot, it throws the whole rest of the pattern off. The patterns from Peek-a-Boo patterns have been the easiest for me to put together. They are in color which I love. I have accidentally printed them off in black and white, which makes them difficult to get the right size, but I just go around them with a crayon or something and it's fine.

Did you notice the cute headband she's wearing? The tutorial will be up later this week.

Just a couple more pictures until we get to the giveaway.

Make sure you check out all the other stops on the tour to see what they've done with some of the other great patterns in the shop!
