I lengthened the legs on the romper by two inches so it would be longer on Tess. Though shorter (as it was designed) with books and tights, such as this darling ensemble from A Lemon Squeezy Home, would be fabulous this time of year too! I would need purple boots though, don't you think? In any event, I opted for longer because romper plus tights plus multiple diaper changes a day didn't sound as convenient for every day wear. (Rare for me to think practically, I know.)
The romper is quite full on Tess, which I think is adorable. She is such a little peanut! (Way on the left end of the weight percentile charts.)
I love the ties on the shoulder. I also found with Tess's build I can keep it tied and pull it on and off--easy. And I was thinking this romper reminds me of a Laura Ashley babywale corduory romper I once had. A bit scary as I believe I was in highschool at the time, but that was the look! Anyone remember?
It's not easy to get Tess to hold still these days. I even enlisted Audrey to help with the photos which worked passably, and...
...not so well!
So the hanger as model seemed the best way to show the full view!
