The Easy Romper I Wished I Had Packed: FREE Pattern

Step Five: Finishing The Easy Romper

All it remains is to hem the flounce and shorts.

For the flounce, sew a seam at 1/8″ from the edge and another from that seam at 1/8″ as well.easy romper Cut the seam allowance close to the first seam, fold, and iron.easy romper

Fold one more time using the seam closest to the edge as a guide and finish your hem.  This is the easiest way to finish a hem on a curved edge.

For the shorts, fold the hem 1/2″ and iron then fold another 1/2″ and sew the hem.  As you can see this is really a very easy romper to make.

    I’m not sure if it’s just me, but the link doesn’t work.

    Hi Myra! I love this pattern. I was sceptical I could sew it myself but I gave it a go on an old bedsheet as a test. I’m happy to say I will be buying fabric to make a nice version of it for myself today as the test came out fabulous! Thank you for sharing your pattern!

    Where are the actual instructions?

    I’m sure you get tired of other people’s opinions…. but I’d rather see a larger model wearing the clothes. In this case, the size 4 model is swimming in a size 6 garment, which gives me the impression that it’s going to be huge on my size 14 body. I’d also like to see how it looks on someone that has boobs and a belly. At my size I hesitate to wear a romper and would like an idea of how it’s going to look on my body type. I would adore it, if it looked good on me.

    Hello Myra,

    I am having trouble underatanding at what point ai attach tbe back of the top? I am not understanding the instructions. Also, when cutting out the front top, do I cut out the triangle bit (dart) or leave it and use it as a guide to fold fabric for the dart?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Anita, you are supposed to joining the triangle and sew the tip. Maybe you should wait for the video. The instructions are step by step but if you have never made a garment this might be a little advance for you at this point.

      • Anita says:

        I figured out the darts and have made a few garments but I am also stuck on the part where you attach the straps to the romper top and then the flounce. Do I have to have the romper inside out at this point or just normal and pin the straps to the inside? I am waiting for the video but do you have any idea when you might upload it? I would love to finish the romper soon as it is a lovely garment.

        • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

          Hi Anita yes you need to sew the straps inside out however this is better explained on a video. doing my best to finish it.

    IS there an easy way to print out all 4 pages of the instructions? I have tried the the 3 dots to the left and then the printerfriendly link. It only prints or pdf the 1st page. I have tried everything to get page 2, 3, 4 etc. I like to print the instructions and place in a 3 hole punched folder and include the folded taped pattern. This way I have the pattern stored to use again. Thanks

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Sherrie, not at the moment, I am looking for an asistant to help me do this an a million other things I need to do for the site. Let you know when the PDF is printable.
