Ruboff romper pattern

I've fallen in love with the short-sleeved rompers for my littlest man.  In the heat of summer, I'd keep him in only a onesie to stay cool, but his cloth diaper hangs out of the legs openings.  Not cute!  I bought the romper on the left and figured I could ruboff the pattern to make my own.  How hard could it be?  I had my serger out for another purpose, so the general construction was easy, but it took at least 4 tries to get the crotch gusset right.   And wow, the snap-tape I used for the bottom closure was such a pain!  I used a zipper foot to seam the edge, but it wasn't quite close enough and I had to manually push it through the machine.  I've caught my finger with the needle doing that in the past, so it's not my favorite method of sewing!

The finished romper turned out fine, but I've got some fit and construction alterations in mind.  Hopefully I get another done before summer ends!
