Hemp Freedom Romper
I typically don't make what I consider Trendy Clothing, but when I saw how popular Rompers were becoming, I thought ~
"I can do that." A couple years ago, I made a dress in a very similar fashion, sew it was an easy pattern to draft. I've also wanted to make shorts for quite some time...more to come on that note....
I chose a high neckline, as I love that for natural sun protection, and hemp is naturally uv-ray protectant. I made a low back, to help get on and off easier, and that way you could highlight a fun sports bra underneath if you wanted.
Before we were evacuated from the wildfire, I had already sold many at the Twisp Farmer's Market, and everyone said, it was so darn comfortable, they didn't want to take it off.
I of course, already thought that, as I kept both Black & Cornflower for myself. 😉
The shirt part of the Hemp Romper is attached by a 3" waistband to connect the shorts. When I put on the romper, I adjust that part as I normally would with pants. The side seam of shirt measures at 16-17" so even longer torso ladies can wear as well. One of my massage therapist's is 5'10", thin, with a long torso, and the size small fit her perfect.
I'm wearing an XS in the black, Elise is wearing a Large in the Cornflower Blue - I would probably fit her in a Medium next time.
