I've been wanting to make a romper for a long time, but hesitated because I thought it would be too much trouble at potty time. But after Elegance and Elephants released their latest pattern, the Pleated Playsuit, I knew I had to make at least one. It looked so adorable and was FREE!
I still didn't make the romper right away because I was in skirt making mode for Skirt Week. But skirts seem to be out right now and rompers/shorts are in! Romper Week starts this week at Sewing Mama Raeanna and Shorts-on-a-line has started already (hosted by Imagine Gnats and Small & Friendly). On top of that, Calia Made is running a series right now called the Best of Summer Series where bloggers review patterns they love and inspire others to try them. So many reasons to try this pattern rather than worry about whether a romper is functional.
This romper turned out cuter than I could have imagined! The pockets are so cool! I love the faux piping made from the pocket lining and the sizing of them are actually functional. So many pockets on kids clothes barely have enough room for their hands.
