Tutorial Tuesday: Raglan Romper, plus Handmade Fair Tickets Giveaway!

This week's tutorial features a quick and easy Raglan Romper tutorial from the amazing Misty at Immackulate.  Misty has 13 children so she should know a thing or two about making great baby clothes!

Using an existing baby sleeper (or you can use any top which fits your child), Misty takes you through how to draft and sew your romper.
It's a simple make, but with the contrasting raglan sleeves, neckline and applique design (Oh how I love applique!) it makes a brilliantly professional finish.  You can personalise the applique with your own design to suit your baby, but I just love Misty's plane!  
As you can see, Misty's son Josiah looks great in his! 
Cotton Jersey or Cotton Lycra are perfect for baby rompers. I've selected a few of my favourites below...
