Are you a beginning sewer looking for cute and easy to sew sewing patterns? Jenny Hall, the creative designer behind Seamingly Smitten, has designed and written several PDF patterns with beginning sewers in mind!
This pattern was very simple to sew! Only two pattern pieces, plus a little bias tape. This pattern came with instructions for a few different leg options, though, I kept it simple with just a bit of contrasting bias tap around the bottom hem.
Another good thing about this pattern is that I was able to embellish it however I wanted.
I chose to make my own bias tape instead of store bought and since the pattern already had a front seam, I took advantage of this and created a chevron style design with my striped fabric. (Which was harder than I thought it would be, good thing I had plenty of fabric.) I also shirred around the waist of the romper. I had used a silky robe belt/tie to tie around her waist to help me decide where to put the shirring. She loved the robe belt and insisted her outfit needed a belt too, so we added a belt as well!
Here are just a few of her other patterns that I really like:
|The Dainty Jane Jumper|
|The Seaside Dress|
|Mimi Maxi Dress|
|Miss Mod Top|
