Description

Alright guys, let’s be honest, if you look it up, this pattern envelope looks like a trainwreck..seriously. Nevertheless, I decided to give it a show because I wanted a new romper project and thought maybe there a faint hope in this. The pattern suggests a variety of fabric types, including cotton knits. I am usually skeptical of a pattern that claims it can be made with woven or knit..but I really felt this pattern only stood a chance of looking right if it was made in a knit. The pattern is modeled in a horrendously cheap silky polyester mess. So I didn’t go high quality on my fabric – just got an inexpensive cotton interlock print. To my surprise, it turned out way better than expected. I used the halter cowl neck version – just as a warning, the back ends up being very low with this version (sorry there is no photo of this). I had to get creative with my bra situation … which meant I wore a bikini top :) Please give this pattern a chance – it has some solid potential!

    I’ve been searching for a romper pattern – I have 4 now, and they aren’t The One… this might be! I love the length and fit of the shorts, and the whole silhouette in general is really flattering (at least on you!) – I will definitely check this one out. And since I haven’t seen the pattern, and have been duly warned about it’s yickyness, I can mentally replace the image. Thanks for sharing, I’m totally impressed and inspired. As a side note – WHY do they do that with the horrific fabric on patterns? I have a number of new look project workbook patterns that are really good and versatile. But if I had used the pictures instead of the line drawings like I did when I first began sewing, I’m certain that the combinations of hot yellow and gold shiny ombre/tropical shirting on hallucinogens/poly-georgette in moldy lunchmeat and peach with sparkly chevron – often in the same simple design, I would never have found some super patterns. (Okay I’m exaggerating a bit…but not much!)
