Love Notions Sunday Romper

Love Notions Sunday Romper

The Love Notions Sunday romper is a secret pyjama pattern which you can wear out of the house. I made my first two versions of this pattern during the pattern testing process last year. I loved them so much that I have made two more this including the girls pattern. I have not exhausted all the options that come with this pattern but each i have made is different from the other.

I wrote a blog post where i reviewed this pattern in the blog post here if you would love to hear about it and also in a video linked below (if you would rather watch it instead.

Pattern Description:

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.

Specifications

  • 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 pants and skirt pieces.

Pattern Sizing:

Ladies Sunday Romper comes in sizes 0-32. I made size 2 for the bodice which i blended into size 4 for both the skirt and pants version.

Sunday Romper Girls comes in sizes 2T-16. I cut out size 7 for my missy which is true to size.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

I have not had issue with Love Notions instructions because most of them come with helpful videos which hold one’s hand through steps which would be difficult to tackle.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I love the many options this pattern comes with and also the fact that it has an accompanying girls version. This is a winner for other cheesy mums like mum who love twinning with their little girls.

Fabric Used:

For my most recent versions, I used Art gallery cotton jersey fabric from Minerva which was lovely to work with.

For the romper version, I used Viscose jersey fabric and Olive Cotton rib knit for the tank version.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Ladies

I made a sway back adjustment to the back bodice pieces of all my versions.

I omitted the V-neck line on back bodice pieces on both my daughter and my version. I was happy to do this since the neckline doesn’t require to accommodate for the hips as in case of a jumpsuit or romper.

Girls

I shortened the skirt piece by an inch mostly because I ran out of fabric after squeezing both dresses out of just 2 metres of fabric.

Conclusion:

I love the Sunday romper pattern which I think is very clear by now. I am glad to have made the girls version too which is pretty much like the ladies’. I would recommend this pattern to a confident beginner mostly because it is sewn in knit fabrics which can be challenging for a complete beginner. I am now ready for any garden party or BBQ since thats all we are doing at the moment with the sun out. Thank you for stopping by. X

Here is the video, where I review this pattern ,

The Fabrics

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.

The Making

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.

Alterations

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.
