Kwik Sew 3776

I've had a thing for rompers lately.  Not for myself.  No, I'm not fashionista enough to go there.  But on Iris, they make me downright giddy!  A romper was on my must-sew list.

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)

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!
