Contrary Toddler Couture

Here's a solution for using up leftover sewing notions, getting rid of yet another used t-shirt, and ending up with a very artsy and vaguely Parisian outfit for your favorite toddler. Step one involves scoring a cheap romper pattern for a couple of dollars. Then start cutting up a t-shirt, mixing in some random fabric scraps, and tossing unrelated notions onto the garment.

This romper starts with a t-shirt from the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. as the base. Shoulder straps are scraps from an upcycled man's shirt. Four buttons from a vintage button collection allow the straps to be adjustable. Notions include silk roses and scraps of lace, contributing to the "ooh la la" look.

Oooh la la!
