Description

Dark denim jumper/romper. I added a cheap woven red belt from Forever 21 + long necklace for a more ‘dressy’ look ;) Used flat-felled seam technique on the inside for more durability with denim fabric.

Material Notes

denim, elastic, simplicity #2374 pattern

      Hey thanks!! The casing around the bodice is actually the same size as the one around the waist. The casing opening is basically about 3/4" wide, because the elastic the pattern calls for is 1/2" elastic to be pulled through it.

      I’m pretty sure that I’ll be making the one with the long pants, but prob not for a while. I keep pattern jumping, so we’ll see.

      I hope that helps :)

    You look great! I’m sooo in love with your romper! Would love to make one, only I would like mine to be with little sleeves. Do you by any chance, know of such a pattern?

      Sorry, don’t know of such pattern. You could probably just use a pattern for the top you like, with the bottom pieces/instructions of this pattern. That way you could just make the elastic casing connecting the shorts + the top you want. Hmmmm…..actually that would be really a cute idea ;)

      thx Kelly ;) this is a Simplicity pattern #2374. I’ve got the pictures of the front and back of the pattern/variations on my blog too -

    I am so loving this look for this summer. I bought two patterns – one vintage one present. Just waiting on a demin sale to go on. I plan on doing one in reversible quilter’s cotton too.

      that’s a really cute idea! the pattern originally called for an optional neck strap + big pockets on the sides, which I think would’ve been really great additions too. this is just the ‘basic’ romper – but i’m definitely doing another in a nice floral print! can’t wait to see how yours turns out ;)
