I have always been so fond of rompers (most of us are right?!?) but never got around to making one. I was on the lookout for romper patterns when I got an email from Thread Faction Studio in response to a testing call I had applied a while ago. As soon as I saw the line drawing, I knew I had to make it 🙂

I am so excited to share with you guys, the romper #110  from Thread Faction Studio. This romper is part of the new Spring/Summer Collection, SS2016 which is the perfect assortment of beach and lounge wear knit patterns for girls sizes 2-10. Head on over to the SS2016 look book for a glimpse of all the patterns in this fun collection.

The #110 is a simple summer romper with flutter sleeves and a bound placket with a button and loop closure. With a great tutorial and helpful illustrations, this pattern with a relaxed fit bodice and cuffed shorts comes together perfectly. Here’s how ours turned out!

Never mind that she decided to keep dancing rather than stand still for a few pictures but this romper turned out exactly as I visualized it when I looked at the line drawings. Don’t little girls in rompers make for an adorable sight?

The striped jersey was from Hancock fabrics obtained a while ago while the ditsy floral jersey that I used for an earlier project was from last year’s Girl Charlee Knit fix. The pattern has enough ease that my little one can slip in and out of it quite effortlessly.

This pattern with precisely drafted pattern pieces and good instructions is fairly easy to construct. I like the little details in this pattern like the cuffed shorts and the gathered flutter sleeves. One thing I do wish the pattern came with, was the option to make this romper in pants or capris length but it’s an easy enough hack that I might try it some day.

The #110 romper released today as part of the SS2016 collection and is on sale now (aff)

And because it has become an unavoidable habit of mine to make 2 (or more) of every pattern I sew, here’s another version for you guys. I used a teal reversible knit from Jo ann fabrics and love how it turned out 🙂

I quite like the look of this neckline with the binding, and it makes for a much neater finish both inside and out. This was such a comfortable outfit for my always-on-the-go toddler, she stayed in it all day long!

 

and here’s a picture of the back, because I have to show you the cute “handmade with love” button I used 🙂

And that’s it you guys! If you love the pattern, go get it here on sale price (just over $6 USD) and its even cheaper if you get the whole collection ($21.50 USD for all 7 patterns) (aff).

Cheers!
