South Shore Romper Makes from the Web
The South Shore Romper pattern is a versatile pattern that checks all the boxes for me.
Our notes: In this blog post, you can see several variations in different fabrics and styles, which is super helpful! See how you could make a casual work outfit, or dressy evening wear, from the same pattern.
If I saw you walking down the street in this, my first through would be “whoa, they seem super fun to hang out with!”
Our notes: Gold! Sparkle! Jumpsuit! Wow, this romper is delightful, bringing a smile to anyone who sees it. Remember that sewing should be fun, and the things you make should make you happy, just like this ray of sunshine!
I made a romper! And it has pockets! And I love it! There will be many more.
Our notes: This combination of two patterns is a great way to get exactly the look you want in a garment. Just because a pattern is written or drafted one way, doesn't mean that's the only way to make it!
[The Ellie & Mac south shore romper bodice] is breastfeeding friendly.
Our notes: This creative combo includes a modification of the romper, which is a pretty simple change to make: if you like the bodice of a romper but want a top or skirt, you can either leave off the shorts part of the pattern, or combine it with your favourite skirt pattern. Just make sure the waist measurements match up.
I finished the whole neckline (back & all) with 1/4” elastic. I overlock or zigzag the elastic to the wrong side, stretching it a little as I go. Then fold in once and top stitch in place.
Our notes: Whether combined with shorts, pants, or a skirt, this bodice has a great style with a lovely fit. This tropical print brushed polyester makes this version fun, bright, and super soft.
Band finish on a wrap dress is the best finish.
Our notes: This sewist should be proud of the stripe matching on this one, it looks great! They brilliantly added a clear elastic inside the neckband binding, to keep it stretchy enough to breastfeed, but not so loose that it falls down.
I used zig zag stitch and serged along the way. I used a twin needle for the first time for hems and cuffs and I swear to God that is the greatest thing since... Well since I got a Serger!
Our notes: With so many options and variations, you can make this romper many times and have each garment look like a different pattern! We especially love the waist tie in this version.
It was interesting seeing the top and the first time I’d made pockets!
Our notes: Let your geek flag fly! These matching mommy-daughter rompers are adorable, and using the child and adult versions of the same pattern makes the match even more obvious.
I used zigzag stitch on hems and serged inside seams so it looked cleaner.
Our notes: This matching set is simple and beautiful. Use all-over non-directional print so you don't have to worry about parts lining up or stripes matching at the seams.
