I’ve been on the lookout for some baby rompers that were stylish and comfortable. The ones I found were on the pricey side, so I decided to turn a men’s t-shirt into a romper. Men’s t-shirts provide fun prints and plenty of fabric to work with. As a bonus, they’re often inexpensive. 

This tutorial is easy to follow and it’s a quick sewing project. It’s the perfect way to give new life to t-shirts that your man has grown tired of!
