Ashley and Emily from Frances Suzanne created an outfit for their baby niece that looks like a romper but is actually two pieces. Their two-piece “faux romper” is actually a pair of shorts and a matching tank with an elasticized waist. The two piece outfit makes for easier diaper changes, since the shorts just slide off. (No having to match up all those snaps at the crotch while baby tries to wriggle away.) They share a tutorial showing how to make the top. The dimensions they give will make one in a 12month size. You could easily adapt the measurements to fit your own child. Go to Frances Suzanne for the tute.
