Color-happy romper on the short side

Hiya everybody!…I was trying to blog a little earlier but the power was out…it never fails though; when the temperatures rise over the 100 degree mark our power company has work to do restoring overworked, parched power lines…the power just kicked in a few minutes ago and I’m glad…it was quite stuffy in here with the outside temps at 108 degrees!!!!!
Anyway this post features a romper I made way last year when the “cold” started to come back…I made it towards the end of September….I had only worn it once and of course I was in one of those famous moods of mine and didn’t feel like taking not one picture; so I didn’t….but this past weekend I didn’t mind it so much so I snapped a few….
I made McCall’s 6083 again; this time View A….Now I’ve made this pattern a few times before with issues every other time with the pockets….when I made this one the pocket fairies were on my side because I didn’t have to get Clover (my seam ripper; its the brand name but it fits)……I also lengthened the pattern because it was kinda two short for my taste nowadays….I added two inches and hemmed it with the regular 5/8 hem….I knew I had to have some of that fabric too…its like tie-dye, see-through lace, a buncha colors; it was just me all the way….and something told me I should make a super comfy romper with my trusty McCall’s pattern….I have another romper/jumpsuit pattern but I haven’t used it yet….Soon though I will….and I’m on the lookout for Simplicity’s New Look pattern #6373….I need that…..
Well I guess I’ll share and share with me too…who made something cute as eva’ lately?…or last year like me lol?….Direct me to the makes!

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
