Well, I was doing those "A Better ______ for GOTY Lea Clark,"
but that seemed to have a backlash.
So I will just secretly post about a
better romper for Lea here in this post, haha.
When I saw the leaked pics of this...
...I was like dear God of the Parrots I hope those are pajamas.
And luckily, they were.
And as far as garish pajamas, they work well.
I can't see myself buying them.
But I have thought about it, because they are really fun.
But the issue I have with rompers is this -
even the ones that aren't made to be pajamas, often look like pajamas.
Like this one:
I would wear this.
I would want one for my dolls.
I want one for my Lea.
But it screams "loungewear" to me.
I'm not gonna wear this out grocery shopping or out to the movies.
I am going to sit on my couch in this.
So yes -- make this, sew it, sell it -- but I would advertise it as loungewear.
And I think it will do very well.
The secret / key to a going-out romper?
Higher end drapey, silken fabric.
And darker colors.
Deep reds, burnt oranges.
These things ^^^ make the romper look more sophisticated
and for going outside into the world of people.
That one ^^^ could have easily
become a bathrobe-pajama combo --
but the choices of colors, overlapping shawl neckline,
drapey polyester fabric, and slanted pockets, sells this as going-out attire.
In different colors...
A patterned fabric...
Even a thicker fabric...
And all I would be thinking is - spa day bathrobe outfit.
Again, I am trying to make my posts shorter so
that I can actually produce more than one of them a week.
So this is all for today.
But I will be posting more on the "Conquering the Romper" theme though!
So stay tuned my fashion-forward friends!!!
