When I was little I always dreamed of joining the circus and riding elephants all day long for a career. I still have quite the affinity for elephants but I doubt I’ll be running away to join Ringling Brothers anytime soon.
I got this circus print fabric a long time ago and I’ve been looking for the perfect pattern. I wanted to make a kitschy kind of dress but I couldn’t find the right one so I decided to go with Mccalls 6083.
Im fairly pleased with the outcome of the romper and I’d like to try the pattern with a gray charcoal knit i’ve had lying around for forever. Especially because making it in a stiff cotton makes it difficult to wriggle into the jumper which is obviously designed to made in material with some stretch to it.
Im glad I took these pictures before I went out in this outfit cus the romper ended up a little too short for my taste. I’ll just have to wait a bit when the weather cools and I can pair these with some tights.
