1940's INSPIRED ROMPER WITH BIRD PRINT


ON HOLD!


I love this one! Love love love!

But, as with most other things that end up here, I have not worn it enough. IN fact, only abouyt 2-3 times... I always wanted to wait to get my legs back in to shape to be able to wear it without tights but now with childbirth coming up I might as well just let it go :)


The romper came with a tiny little stitch keeping the bust line more modest. I have opened the stitch as it stretched a bit over my bust. I wore it with a top underneath instead. You can easily stitch it back together if you prefer, but the fabric does fall nicer now that opened.

The romper has a hidden zipper in the back. The golden buttons in front are just for decorative use.
It has pockets on the side. Oh, pockets! Now I'm starting to re-consider selling, what if I loose a lot of weight when breastfeeding and my legs go all slim and slender again (haha, good one!)

It has a very nice fit! It will also look nice less tight, on somebody smaller than me. Mind that my hips and behind are rather large, the legs will take on a more skirt-like look on a slimmer body shape.

The brand is Peppermint, ordered from ModCloth about a year and a half ago.
Style it like I did with coloured or nude tights and high heels. Or a black beret and black ballerinas and a floppy, slightly longer cardigan for a more artsy look. Just to name a few.

I think I may be in love.

I notice that you said the fabric doesnt stretch but I was wondering, since you unstitched the blouse part, if it has any leway for a person with a slightly bigger bust?

Thank you!

I think it should! As it is quite open now, and leaves some spare room. You will probably have to have a top underneath though, not to flash too much :)
I'm not able to try it on right now (heh, no shit ) so I can't remember exactly how much space there is, so here's the only picture of me wearing it apart from the pic in the post.
Ehrm, it's a bit dorky but you get the point of the extra space:
