Boys' Week {Project Run and Play}

Well, I made it through Boys' Week over at Project Run and Play without a boy and I actually LOVE what I created.  I wanted to make something for Bean even though it would be boy-ish.  I thought of a cute way to girl it up once the contest was over and for something that was just a thought it my mind to actually turn out exactly as I was hoping is kind of exciting.  Especially since this was a functional-type of experiment and not something asthetic. 

After seeing You and Mie's GORGEOUS winter romper entered for the Junebug Dress Remix, I fell in love with the idea of making a shorts romper.  A shromper.  With a few details I thought I could take a boy's shromper and fit it for a girl.  This is what I came up with.



A fully lined shromper.  I fell in love with how the top pocket I made adds a hint of frogginess to the front.  So I call it the Froggy Shromper, hehe.

Stay tuned for some pics of Bean in the Froggy Shromper with both boy AND girl styling.  It turned out so cute!  I swear it's worth the wait to see how the girl pics turned out :)

  4. I love how the parts of this work together to form a froggy, without there being any actual appliqued pictures involved. Very creative and adorable! It will be fun to see how you make it girly in the end.
