Winged Riverside Romper

Added Jul 13, 2011

Portland, Oregon...






I am so excited about this romper as an addition to my (obsessive) jumpsuit collection. This was my first time seeing a photo and re-creating a pattern from scratch by draping and flat patterning. It was an amazing amount of fun trying to figure it out. I would like to eventually add pockets and I overshot the model’s overall torso length so I’m in the process of re-configuring the pattern for a better fit. But I love it. A lot. Used the same (very cheap) black polyester that I did for the circle skirt.

Material Notes

Medium weight slight stretch 100% polyester, invisible zipper.


Garment Type
