Amy from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop has done it again with this adorable Zipster Romper!
I think my little mister likes it, don’t you?
This romper is designed with a lined hood and cuffed arms and legs. You have lots of options, too–a full or partial zip, a patch or kangaroo pocket, a snap crotch for diaper changes, and an optional gusset (which is AMAZING for my little guy’s fluffy cloth-diapered tooshie!). The Zipster is available in sizes newborn through 4T.
I chose a cozy French terry knit from Hobby Lobby and a super soft cotton spandex from JoAnn Fabrics, but I love that this romper could have so many looks. My next one is going to mash the feet from Amy’s Lullabye Line Snap Pajamas (or you could try the feet from her Happy Feet Pajamas). I like that this one doesn’t open all the way; diaper changes are still easy with the snap placket (the cuffs slide off baby’s feet quite easily).
With the way this hood is built and lined, it would be pretty easy to add ears or a spine (think dinosaur spikes), too. Ok. I mostly threw that last photo in because I love my little guy’s hands and feet. So cute.
Finally, Amy has included a zipper guard behind the main zip to protect sensitive skin from rubbing. I didn’t think to take a separate photo of that, but I assure you, it’s there.
Everybody wants to hold this little man while he’s in this super cozy romper. I already have more planned!
I have been loving getting to sew little girl outfits after sewing for 4 boys…
