An intermediate sewing level is required to sew the romper, the available sizes are: 3-6-9-12 & 18 months.

It is stitched in Corduroy and lined with organic cotton veil (for ecru). You can sew around a nice Lurex (or in the color of your choice) piping.

Romper opens from the bottom thanks to its little snaps band easy to put (and easy for changing baby)!

The blog "Le son des Grelots" tested for us our Kiwi baby's vest & shorts sewing pattern!

We love the pattern description on her blog and the very pertinent remarks she gave us back.

She chooses to reverse the front and back of the baby's vest to show the wrap-over-top side which gives a nice variation.
