Strapless Romper – Burdastyle 4/2012 #109

This is another pattern I traced a few years ago when I first started sewing, and which I only just stitched up, the short romper version of the strapless jumpsuit. It was fairly straightforward to sew, except I added lace/eyelet edging to the top edge, waist, and leg hems. I also raised the leg hems up with fold over cuffs to make them slightly shorter. I ended up making the top edge a little wavy and messy so I stitched some white cotton tape around the inside edge to neaten it. Great for a spa day at home, get out your manicure set lol, although I’ve seen young ladies wearing them out to the beach etc. Oh I almost forgot: I omitted the pockets, simply as I never had enough of the cotton remnant left in my vintage stash, so its not exactly the most useful romper lolz!

    I had to house/cat-sit my friends’ place again and she’s got a spanking new Mr & Mrs duvet cover; i’m so excited I just had to redo my romper pics lol! I had to brighten up the photos though as my tans don’t seem to fade like they used to; sun damage and age lol. Update: Now she’s about to become a mum!

      Thanking you RedBelka! I freaked as I top-stitched the uppermost edge which made it wavy, but I had to because the seam was cut too short, and hence was scruffy and rolling to the outside a bit lol. xx
