The pattern I made originally had the waistline at the natural waist (just below my belly button) but I chose to lower it because I prefer pants that are around the high hip.
Earlier in the week I had the pattern drafted, the front and back pieces cut out and sewn together and waiting for me to decide on what the top would look like. Unlike some of the other things I make, this one didn't really have a plan. I just wanted a romper, and knew it was going to be shorts. I had no plan for what I was going to do for the top, whether or not it would have straps, straight or sweetheart neckline or even if it would need a belt.
