Well, I’d like to tell you a story. My bother gives me a lot of his old t-shirts that he doesn’t want. He gave me an awesome monkey face shirt. This monkey shirt was THE inspiration to my popular t-shirt romper pattern and tutorial post from last year. I loved the idea of a little boy running around in a shorts romper with a huge monkey face on his belly, and I had no idea how it would take off! I didn’t use the monkey shirt for the original romper because the face was so big that I would have had to cut off a lot of the sides to make it the smaller size.
