+ Romper into top tutorial and a farmer’s market with Meeshball

 Nothing better than a farmer’s market with you best friend, your kids and a new top to show off! With this transition into fall, why not cut up those summery rompers and make a whole new-to-you top? And so quick too! Just one of the many ways to transition beautifully and frugally into the fall.
This farmer’s market in Provo is placed smack in the middle of center street in between traffic and everything. There was this super sweet farmer who sold us a watermelon, tomatoes, and pears for cheap a couple bucks (if you go there next wednesday he is the last stand). And I can’t believe how huge the produce is? Beck kept trying to snatch tasty bites from the baskets of fruit as we walked by them, literally he tries this every single time we go to places like this. The boy likes his produce! To top this day off, my friend Meesh cooked us some muffins with the peaches she bought there…and I might have ate 3 right after she dropped them off. I couldn’t help it, they were dang good!

Thanks for taking some photos and bringing over some peach muffins Meesh!

1. Fold in half so side seams are touching. Cut out the joining part of the shorts out and however much extra you want. I cut mine at an angle.
2. Sew the middle front and back seam of the where the shorts were to be more straight.
3. Hem!
If you need to shorten the top part of the romper follow these steps! I only did the back.
1. Seam rip the elastic from the shirt where it needs to be shortened.
2. Slide the top and bottom part into each other only exposing the joining serged edge. Sew a new line above the old taking out the amount you need. If you are taking out a lot, separate the top for the bottom and cut out what’s needed. Then sew the pieces back together and finish the edge.
3. Reattach the elastic to the edge.
4. Finished look.

  15. I have observed that in digital camera models, special receptors help to aim automatically. The sensors connected with some camcorders change in in the area of contrast, while others utilize a beam of infra-red (IR) light, specifically in low lumination. Higher specs cameras occasionally use a mix of both programs and may have Face Priority AF where the camera can ‘See’ any face and focus only on that. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this blog site.
