This top-down romper features a onesie style neckline that overlaps on each side providing room to go over baby's head without a gaping wide neck or button closure. Front and back are worked separately and then joined for the body, then separated again for the legs to make diaper changes easy. The romper features chevron colorwork, which can be just as easily exchanged for stripes or even worked solid to make it more beginner-friendly. Shown in 12 months with matching Ollie Hat (pattern sold separately). Pattern includes instructions for short sleeves & long sleeves, and both shorts & pants options.
