I have been pattern testing once again and I could get used to this. Love Notions has released another awesome pattern which I had the honour to test. This is the Sunday romper for ladies and a similar one has also been released for girls which is the Sunday romper for girls. I intend to get the girls one too to make mum-and-me matching outfits soon.
The Sunday Romper is a versatile pattern which can be worn by both jumpsuit lovers and those who would not be caught in one. It is possible to dress it both up and down and all go down to the fabric of choice.
It features V-neck openings on both the front and back bodices which are wide enough if you opt for the pants option. It also features front angled pockets which is an added detail, however, you also have an option of omitting them.
- Sizes range 0-32
- Full Bust pattern pieces if needed
- Dolman & tank bodice options
- Drawstring or elasticated waistband
- Three lengths for pants- shorts, cropped & full length
- Two length options- knee & full length
- Meant for knit fabrics however woven fabrics can be used for the pants and skirts pieces.
Here is the video, where I review this pattern ,
This pattern is recommended for light to medium weight knits such as jersey, modal, cupro and rayon/viscose blends. I made two versions of the Sunday Romper pattern in two different fabrics.
The Romper which was my pattern test make was made out of a tomato red paisley print viscose jersey. I purchased this off eBay and it was perfect for the romper considering it is lightweight and floaty.
The knee-length skirt bottom version was sewn out of an olive green cotton rib jersey knit fabric I bought from Minerva crafts. This was a medium weight fabric which is perfect if you do not want clothes clinging onto your body.
I sewed up both the dress and the romper in size 2 for the bodice and size 4 for both the shorts and the skirt pieces. I made the romper version with the dolman sleeves and the tank option for the dress. Both bodices sit perfectly well at the shoulders and it did not need to make any adjustments. I opted for the elasticated waist as opposed to the drawstring. This is because I was not ready to turn a long tube of jersey fabric. However, it would have been a cute touch to my plain coloured dress.
I made a swayback adjustment to the back bodice pieces which is a common alteration I make. This gave me the same amount of drape at the waist for both the front and the back pieces.
The Finished Garments
What’s not to love about this pattern? It is a perfect pattern for both jumpsuit and dress lovers. I might make the jumpsuit pattern soon maybe after I have sewed up the girls’ version.
Thank you for stopping by. Xx
