We’re back with the florals folks! You knew I couldn’t stay away.
I love the look of romper and that they have the ease of a dress with the practicality of pants. So of I immediately jumped at the chance to test Sinclair Patterns new Lulu romper , and I have say: I felt pretty dang cute in this.
The pattern is loaded with options: It’s a romper, top, shorts, and pants pattern all in one. I love the fit of the shorts so I’m planning a few of just those for summer. Don’t like rompers? The upper portion is also a super cute wrap front top. Can’t decide? Make separates in matching fabric to wear apart or together for a faux-romper.
I had this beautiful white and with rose print liverpool that I purchased from Knitpop a couple years ago, and I knew it wanted to be a romper. It’s a size 6 bust, size 8 waist and hips in the regular height.
Rompers always seem to me like a huge project to take on, but this went super quick and I was able to sew the whole thing in an afternoon. The way the neckline comes together is quite clever and makes for a fun sew with no fussy neckbands.
The romper has an elastic waistband plus a draw string so you can adjust the fit to your comfort. I personally like to have a waistband that just fits and then tighten or loosen the drawstring as needed.
