It is MAY!!!! So, even though the weather where I live has been fluctuating between the 30's and 60's, I am ready to start dressing my kids for summer (sorry babies, you are just going to have to freeze for style!).
Today we take a look at a favorite pattern of mine - the Adelaide Vintage Romper by our affiliate Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop. I was lucky enough to test this pattern last year for Amy, and I have already made another one for baby girl this year... and plan to make at least one or two more ;o)
Now here is Cassie to fill you in with all the details.....
And here's Erica's version!
This is a great pattern for beginners. You do need to know how to shir but there are directions included, of course. Each step has a picture next to it. I really appreciated this for the pocket part. I did not mess up at all on the pockets and it is because the pictures clearly show you how to line everything up.
The pattern doesn't have a ton of pieces to print out and minimal taping of paper. Sometimes getting the pattern ready is almost as time consuming as sewing the project. I got my pattern ready and pieces cut after dinner. After getting the kids to bed, I was able to finish up sewing the romper. I would say this takes about 2 hours to sew. I suggest making sure you follow the directions on cutting your fabric because you need to flip pieces to get one right and one left. The pattern pieces are marked with those directions on them, too. Since I used an elephant print, we had to take a trip to the zoo!
My model got paid- don't worry! Frozen(GF) banana, anyone?
