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!
