I love rompers and have always wanted to make one that would work with my smaller upper body and larger lower half, so I used McCall’s 6083/6533 (the 6533 one I used is out of print, but you can still get the 6083 one) to realize my vision.
It was a very easy pattern to cut and to sew, had I been able to just cut it and sew it. Unfortunately the pattern runs very short in the bodice, which is never a problem for me, so this must be a problem for everyone who tries this pattern (unless they are very short in the torso and also quite short overall). I did a tremendous amount of picking out stitches and re-sewing and added an invisible zip to ensure I could get in and out of it.
In the end I was pleased with my piece, so the effort was well worth it, but will be glad to try it again with an amended pattern with proper measurements added to the length.
