I've gone a bit mad over rompers lately - you know, those very very cute, very retro-looking all-in-one cotton shorts suits? Here are some of the designs I've run up, in different types of fabrics and with different styles of legs, some high-waisted and others empire waist. The one thing they all have in common is most are made from woven, not stretch fabric (my attempt to be faithful to the rompers of the 30s, 40s and 50s). There'll be more on the way, including more one- and two-piece suits that can be worn swimming!

How I love polkadots! "Minnie", made from stretch fabric:

Polkadot romper #2, doubles as a swimsuit:

My own batik butterfly romper that I wore all summer a couple of years ago:

A cherry and ric-rac print sunsuit (and matching skirt) soon to be listed on etsy:

These rompers are fabulous. I like the materials you've chosen and each design. Answering the front door for an unexpected delivery would be funner in these rompers.

That is design flair! It has always been there though.
