Dark denim versatile romper



The romper cannot be avoided these days.

I made this romper last summer, and shared this roundup of romper patterns earlier this summer. Around that time, reading one of my magazines, I came across this page and was inspired by these chic, fitted, interesting denim rompers. (I love denim in many forms!)

I also love the Anthropologie McGuire Sailor Romper in dark denim.

So, I found some nice lightweight dark denim and made my own!

I combined the simple tank dress top of McCall's M6744 (except I gave it an open button placket at the back so I could step into it) and the romper shorts of Simplicity 1355, a versatile dress/jumpsuit/romper pattern I've used several times even just this year (see all my uses of Simplicity 1355 here).

It's so fun to wear out on a hot day!

I had fun doing the top stitching and shapes of the pockets, a lot like the Anthropologie one.
Necklace: Jules Smith, c/o Favery. Purse: Old Navy (similar/similar/similar). Sandals: Old Navy (similar/similar). 

I highly encourage making yourself a romper this summer!
