Alley Cat Romper Blog Tour

Friday, August 22, 2014

I am sooooo excited to be sharing this gorgeous little number with you today! Let me start by saying if you haven't heard of Lil Luxe Collection (affiliate link) by Jessica Bustos, then you might want to take a glimpse at this up and coming pattern designer. Her style is modern and practical, yet super trendy too. When I saw the Alley Cat Romper, I wanted in and knew I just had to test. Needless to say I was quite please when I was asked to join in on the fun!!!



I fell in love with this romper when I saw the back. Isn't it perfect? The shoulder blades peek out just enough. I seriously can't take the cuteness!!! Jessica's instructions on how to construct the bodice were pretty amazing. I had never done this technique before, but she guides you through it with ease. There is also a pretty awesome pictorial to go with it too. (I am a sucker for pictorials lol)



Lets talk fabric for a second shall we? I am in LOVE with this knit from Girl Charlee. It is a cotton jersey rayon blend knit, in a beautiful floral with hints of cream, mint and pink. They have they same style fabric here, but with more red hues. The knits I have purchased have been spot on, so way to go GC! I don't know about you, but I feel like Madison should be the cat lady... hoarding like 50 cats in her condo :) I just love the look of this romper. Pair it with some vintage-ish floral and you'll have cat lady status for days!



The Alley Cat Romper is equipped with a sloped bodice, a gathered waist, and a dropped crotch which adds to that urban flair. You can also push the ankle cuffs up to give the romper a more cropped look. The size I sewed up for Madison was a 4T with no mods and  the fit was absolutely perfect. She did NOT want to take it off. If I'm not mistaken she even played in the rain with it on!



I highly advise that you guys head on over to Lil Luxe Collection (affiliate link) and see all of Jessica's beautiful designs. Until then, she and a few sponsors have a great giveaway of fabric and patterns, so enter the rafflecopter below :)
