When I found out the next Winterwear Designs Blog Tour would be Rompers, I think I literally jumped for joy. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the romper I made last year (Also from WWD) found here. I was slightly skeptical the first time I wore it but it has become a staple in my weekend summer wardrobe. I even more it during our 40 degree celcius Disneyland Experience.
Fast forward to this year and I jumped at the chance to make a new Romper. I was originally going to make another version of the Riviera Romper but swtiched to the Boho Breeze at the last minute. I could not get over how gorgeous some of the other bloggers Boho's were turning out. The neckline is absolutely fabulous and I'm definitely keen to try this Romper dressed down with my Birkenstock's at the Saturday Farmer's market as I am to dress it up for date night with heels.
The Boho Breeze pattern is definitely a very versitile pattern to add to my collection, I was able to make a romper version with very short sleeves this time but there is also a dress option included with the pattern! I was also able to print, cut, and sew this pattern in approx 3 hours. I am not a fast sewer so do not be too alarmed, I tend to putter and take my time. I also skipped the gathering stitch requested when putting the top and bottom together as I was too lazy to drag up my sewing maching from the basement. Instead I just stretched to fit since I made the entire outfit in Cotton/Lycra (I was able to complete this entire pattern using my serger and coverstitch).
I am in love with the print that I used for this pattern. This custom print is a strikeoff called "Vintage Floral" from the Sweet Summer pre-order open until June 8th at Black Rabbit Fabrics. Amazingly enough, I was able to get an entire size small romper including pockets out of just 1 meter because this fabric is printed extra wide at 64". I wish I had measured the piece before I started cutting to be sure of the exact size.
As always, come check out my Instagram for more sewing adventures (and even some other outdoor craziness I keep finding myself getting in to!)
Disclaimer - I was given a copy of this pattern but all opinions are my own.
