I used Kwik Sew 3776 .
To me, this looked like a pretty simple pattern. I thought it would come together in a hour or so, a lot like this did.
And this would be why I have a reputation around here for being a chronic under-estimator. It's why we're always up until the wee hours of the night packing any time we go on a trip. I overestimate how quickly I can get these things done.
This pattern was more work than I had expected, but the instructions were fantastic and the finishing was beautiful.
Snaps (I used three instead of four)
Bound underarm seam
I was a little confused on the finishing on the plackets, so I just serged my raw edges (see above photo) and hoped for the best. Thankfully that worked!
It closes with four buttons in the back.
The fabric I used for this pattern is Shelburne Falls Vine and Leaf Maple. I like how delicate and timeless this print is. It feels like something I could hold onto for my kids' kids someday.
If I were to make this again, I'd probably add an inch or so in length. It fits her perfectly right now, but I like to make her clothes to have some growing room.
Iris is really stretching out and looking less baby and more little girl these days, right? It's a good thing she still lets me kiss those cheeks a hundred times a day! (I can't resist!)
In my opinion, the romper cuteness factor is through the roof and this pattern was a lot of fun to sew! I'd definitely recommend it!
Super cute and the knee Band-Aid is the perfect toddler accessory!ReplyDelete

Amazingly cute! It was certainly worth the extra un-accounted-for time it took to sew . . . the result looks so cute on her!ReplyDelete
thanks Lucinda. when you try something new and it comes together without any major hitches or moments of frustration, then it's a lot of fun and worth the extra time for sure! :)Delete

Ok, I didn't know I would want to sew rompers until now. Yes, yes, another reason for a baby =)ReplyDelete
