Description

So this floral romper is the most comfortable piece of clothing I have ever made. True story! I used McCall’s 6997, copyright 1994. Hard to believe that I was a junior in high school the year this pattern was published!

I remember this particular style of roomy romper / jumper dress being popular during the 1990s, but I somehow missed ever owning one. I cut the size 10 and probably could have gone even smaller, but I actually dig the roominess.

The fabric I used is a floral rayon challis from Wanderlust Fabrics. I’m so delighted with this fabric! It was so easy to work with and the drape is absolutely dreamy! From the very first moment I saw it, I knew that it would be the perfect fabric to use for my retro 1990s romper. In fact, it’s described by Wanderlust Fabrics as “90s Inspired.”

This romper was super-easy to put together. Between the cost of the fabric, pattern (found at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore for only .25 cents!) and covered buttons, it only set me back about $20.00….SCORE!
