My latest pattern has been a long time in the making, and I am so excited to have it finally ready for publishing!
The Wild Rose Dress & Romper is named after the official flower of my home province: Alberta, Canada. The pattern features 4 views: short romper, long pantsuit, short dress, and long dress. The bodice has optional flutter sleeves.
The top of the dress or romper is sewn from knit fabric. I recommend a very lightweight woven for the bottoms (such as voile, lawn, or challis), but a lightweight knit could be used as well. The flutter sleeves can be sewn out of either the knit or the woven fabric.
The bodice closes with a henley type placket and snaps. The functional placket is necessary for the romper views, but can be simply sewn closed for the dresses. The front opening for the romper means that children can easily take it up and down for dressing, and the snap closures make it easy for little fingers.
As with all my patterns, the Wild Rose Dress & Romper features no trim pages as well as layers so you can only print the sizes you need. The rectangles for the skirt pattern pieces are given as measurements so that you save on paper and time taping.
My daughter is over the moon with the romper (I’ve also sewn her both the dress versions), and loves how it can be dressed up for going out or dressed down for going to the beach.
