Colorblocked Tshirt Romper Tutorial

Today is the last day of tshirt romper week! What a week it has been! I always look forward to doing a week long series, but then I always need a break after. I had fun creating lots of tshirt romper variations and sharing them with you. I've been dressing my baby in them all week, and I've really been enjoying seeing her wear them. It's great for busy, wiggling babies, and the snap closure make dressing and diaper changing so easy! The last variation I have is a simple one. Adding coordinating or contrasting fabric to the back and as a pocket.

SUPPLIES

A women's or men's crew neck tshirt
Coordinating cotton spandex scrap of fabric
FREE PATTERN: Baby Tshirt Romper Pattern size 6-9 mos
Sewing supplies
Ballpoint sewing machine needle
buttons or snaps - I like these KAM Snaps (affiliate link)


INSTRUCTIONS
1. I used the line between "B" and "C" on the back piece as my color blocking line. Just remember to add seam allowance! 
2. Cut the pieces out as recommended in the tshirt romper tutorial. Cut out your color blocked piece from the cotton spandex. Also, cut out a tiny pocket.
3. Sew the colorblocked piece to the back body piece. Construct the rest of the romper as instructed in the tshirt romper tutorial.
4. Hem the top of the pocket.
5. Sew the pocket onto the front left side of the romper.
Here's a list of some other fun variations:
