I just finished sewing this darling romper pattern from Seamingly Smitten Sewing Patterns and I wanted to share my Seamingly Smitten Pattern Review with you today…
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!
Jenny asked me if I would like to sew up one of her patterns for review. Ha ha, silly question, of course, I want to sew one! The pattern I chose to sew was the Rory Bubble Romper in size 5/6.
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 tape around the bottom hem. What I especially liked was 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 robe belt 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!
