It’s been a long time since I’ve sewn much with woven fabrics, so when I had the chance to sew previews for Sugar Ink‘s poplin, I jumped at the chance!
I had forgotten just how easily wovens sew up!
I knew that I wanted a new pattern. Puperita has some of my favorite patterns for wovens and I immediately was drawn to the Pitter Romper pattern. I liked a couple of things about this pattern. First, it was drafted specifically for wovens, but had added stretchy cuffs (cotton/lycra) which I love! Secondly, it included both short and long lengths so it will be great for winter! And it can even be made to be reversible, (although I didn’t line my pants to keep it cooler in summer so mine is not).
I had a fat half of the Sugar Ink poplin to work with and it was plenty for the entire unlined romper (bodice is fully lined with the same fabric). I used a cotton/lycra solid I had on hand for the cuffs and the little hat.
I used #20 Kam Snaps for both the sides and straps and thought they were the perfect size!

The little hat is one of my very favorites. It’s the Melon Cap pattern by Max & Meena. My Kai has a big noggin so I sized up to the child size.
