I sewed another clothes for my daughter and this time it is a rompers with ribbon shoulder straps. The main material of this rompers is from my old knitted sweater, my once favorite clothes before it shows some signs of wears on the neck’s ribbing. Instead of donating it away to the needed1, I think it is better that I recycle the material into something wearable for my daughter.

The approach on how to sew this romper out of an old sweater is pretty straight forward. The top of the rompers is the body of the sweater. The shorts of the rompers are made from the sleeves. Just add some ribbons and elastic bands to complete the rompers.

Rompers, the one-piece garment for kids and adults, has been in trends for the recent years. Be wearing it as it is for the hot weather or add a cardigan and a stocking or tights during the colder weather.

[1] Those needed won’t want to wear a long warm sweater under this crazily hot and humid climate. Those can afford to stay in an air-conditioned room won’t want this worn-off sweater because they can afford to buy a new one.
