Kimono sleeve romper, perfect for solid fabrics!

This unisex kimono sleeve romper has a lot of different ways to finish it.  If you're sewing for an older child you can use a good, stretchy fabric and skip the snaps, just pull it up through the neck.  If you don't like the pockets, leave them off!!  I love them personally :) The fit [...]
