All this summer, my honorary granddaughter, Maelynn, is spending Tuesdays with us! We are spending lots of time playing with bubbles and the water table, visiting the splash pad and enjoying outside activities! I also promised her I would try to sew her a dress every week!
This week, Nana was particularly productive and sewed two dresses and two rompers!
I tried a new pattern for the romper. This is the Emerie Romper and Crop Top pattern by Striped Swallow Designs. I sewed the size 7 for Maelynn as she is very tall and thin! She probably could have easily worn the size 6, but I did not have her here to measure her and wanted to be sure it would be long enough in the stride.
I did not read the instructions until I was half way through and ready to attach the shorts to the bodice! Therefore, I didn’t realize the pattern called for binding and I sewed on bands! Luckily, it all worked out just fine. I had cut my bands the same measurement as the binding and had no problems. It worked out so well, that I went ahead and added bands to my second romper even after realizing my mistake! Bands are just so quick and simple for little summer play clothes!
The watercolor Zebra panel just arrived in the mail last week and was from Wanderlust Designs Custom Fabric. I have been anxious to get it sewn up!
The Camping Animals fabric is one of my very favorites from Flying Pig Fabrics! I have used it to sew this little set for Kai and am hoarding my last scraps to make Kai one more outfit when he is a little bit older!
The Rainbow stripes were from Cuddle Muffins and were a perfect coordinate.
The Yellow stripes were from Opulent Monsters.
I really love this romper pattern and Maelynn says it is very comfy! I’m sure I’ll be making a few more for her!
