The Alayne Convertible Romper

Added May 10, 2013

Vancouver, Canada






Sleeves? Sure. Strapless? Why not.

This convertible romper can be worn in a multitude of styles depending on your mood. It is an incredibly easy sew that consists of only 4 seams (with a bit of basting). The hem has a sassy dipped front and plenty of flattering fullness. PS. It feels like wearing pajamas.

    quick question on this – how much fabric does it take? Initially it seems like it would be good with aprox 2 meters of stretch jersey, but then the straps look quite large, so not sure.

    Why are there two indications for required fabric? 115 cm (45”) or 150 cm (60”)? I’m sorry, I can’t figure it out…

      I just wore it on a windy day and was so thankful for the shorts! Glad you like it.

      :))) that was exactly what I thought when I saw your romper! On a windy day I swore never to wear circle skirt again;). I just took a look at your blog post and I liked your review about the ways of wearing it.
      Do you finish the edges of the straps or let them raw?

      The straps and hem are left raw. I thought about lining the straps but they need to be thin and very stretchy.
