Rainbow Stripes

I've loved rainbow stripes for years and years. I found the fabric above at a thrift store and snatched it up immediately. It's exactly like the fabric of a rainbow striped romper I had when I was about 6 years old. That romper was one of my favorite outfits. I don't remember the details of the garment but I do remember the fabric. I believe it was rather like the romper below. (I found these photos somewhere on the world wide web a while back; I think via The Coveted Vintage Pick of the Day.)

There's about 2 yards of fabric, 45 inches wide and it only cost 99 cents. It might be enough to recreate the romper of my childhood. But... at 5'11" I might look more overgrown than cute. So, I'm thinking probably a top would be more appropriate.

Or maybe a cute little dress like the one above from Thread Social's Spring 2009 collection. Besides the rainbow stripe, I especially like the scoop neckline and fluttery sleeves. Maybe there would be enough fabric for a tank top and shorts, to be worn separately or together if I start to get daring. hmm...


  1. I love that dress with the satin bow in the back. I think you could totally rock the romper, maybe with a belt to make it more mature? I look forward to seeing what you make!


    it would be awesome...something right off the Sartorialist
