The new Sunshine Romper from Ellie and Mac has released and we are jumping for joy!! You can find it on sale here! (Sale price will automatically show in your cart when added.)  Baby Girl is a little picky with her clothes and I was not sure how she will handle this romper. I made it pink just in case. I used Valentine’s Day fabric from Little Lady Bug.  It is so cute with hearts, giraffes and snails!  Yes snails!  I so love snails.  She was a little leery before putting on the Sunshine Romper, however afterwards she loved it.  She actually asked to take it off to eat, because she did not want to get it messy.

First of all, there were only two things Baby Girl asked Santa for Christmas and one of them was this super cute pink kids couch!  She saw this pink Melissa and Doug sofa and wanted it so bad.  Luckily, Santa came through and brought me this cute photo prop, I mean, Baby Girl this present.  She loves it and at 2 and 1/2 it is a perfect size for her!  Her birthday is in a few months, maybe she needs the matching pink Melissa and Doug chair too?

Okay, now back to the Sunshine Romper! The Sunshine Romper has a one shoulder bodice.  There is also the option of adding a strap to the other side.  I really liked the version without the strap.  It gives her more of a stylish, yet simple look.  Two waistband options are also available.

You can choose between a straight waistband and a gathered waistband.  I chose the gathered waistband.  You attach the waistband to the bodice and gather the shorts to size of the waistband.  There is also elastic in the waistband for added structure.  The hem of the legs also uses elastic.

Elastic helps give the leg hems a more gathered look, which gives the shorts of the Sunshine Romper a bubble look.  I love bubble shorts and these do not disappoint.

Are these bubble shorts adorable or what?  They were were a perfect fit as well! The arm band and neck band were super easy to put on by quartering the sections.

There is also the option of topstitching the arm band and neck band, however I skipped this step.  I thought they both laid flat well without the topstitching.

Baby Girl is now trying to pose for pictures.  Above is her version of posing and smiling.  LOL!  She cracks me up.  It should be interesting to see her progression in her poses.  Last night I took some pictures of her in a new Sweetie Tunic by Ellie and Mac and she told her brother, “Get off my bed, I am taking pictures!!”  Oh my, I might have created a monster.  Please feel free to also check out my review of the Sweetie Dress.

I added an Elle est Forte proverb quote with my new Silhouette Cameo, Santa brought me for Christmas.  Be on the look out for more blog posts on vinyl coming soon!

Overall, we are very excited for the new Sunshine Romper and I believe it will be a staple in Baby Girl’s closet this summer! (Just like the Sweetie Dress is a staple in her closet this winter.)  It was a much easier sew than I originally thought it would be.  I made mine fairly quickly.

About Seams Sew Lo 135 Articles
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
