Welcome Back!!! Today we have an absolutely adorable little romper to share with you. My Little Plumcake has outdone themselves with the new Piper Romper. It is totally girly, but with clean lines that even your slightly older girls will still love. You can mix and match fabrics, or keep it classic in monotone. There are many options given for embellishments and even instructions for a halter or criss-cross back. This is a pattern you are going to want to add to your summer collection, and today and tomorrow (7/1-2) you can pick up this little beauty for $4 with the code PIPER... What are you waiting for???? Now take it away Kara............
The Piper Summer Romper looks really simple but there are some sophisticated touches that make it an intermediate pattern. The ruffle has piping on the top that is optional. If you prefer, the neck ties can criss-cross instead of tie and use a button to make them more adjustable. I like the ease of the tie as an option as well.
Check out the pockets, I love the contrast on the top of them. You can add piping (like I did) or leave it out and just have a contrasting top.
The elastic casing at the middle gives great definition and makes it easy to get on and off. I love how easy and quick this outfit went together. It took me about 2 1/2 hours (with some minor breaks for refereeing kids, lunch preparation, clean-up and more clean-up, etc., etc.) to put it together. This pattern is not time consuming but has a great outcome.
I can't wait to make more of this cute little number! I used a woven cotton on this particular romper but I think I would give it a try with a knit as well. If you have never made or used piping before, this is a great pattern to try it out on! The instructions are very clear and are particularly helpful with the buttonholes.
I can also see using up some fabric scraps with this pattern. Most of the pieces being used are fairly small so it wouldn't be difficult to use up some of those smaller pieces of material and get more of the patchwork look. I had to bribe this little sweetie pie with some yummy cookies so I must get to making them now! Enjoy!
This just screams summer to me! I don't know about you but I'm ready for a picnic! What do you think?
