I decided to make myself a "romper" from my days of youth. I chose McCalls 6760 jumpsuit view and shortened it to get the romper. There was an option to make it as a dress as well.

Its listed as a lined dress or wide-legged jumpsuit has drawstring on shoulders, semi-fitted, gathered bodice overlapping slightly to side back (no side seams), midriff, side pockets, invisible back zipper and narrow hem.

The waist yoke is very comfortable and makes it feel as though I have on a belt. Because of the slim fit, the pattern has the 14" back zipper all the way up to and through the yoke. Now I would not normally place a zipper in the "back" of a jumpsuit, however, in this case the opening is low enough to reach around for use when the need arises.

The shoulder ties are functional, and are run through a channel which was created by sewing running stitches 3/8" on either side of the should seam. They needed to be knotted tightly in order to keep them secure. The fit of the bodice has to be the correct length to keep the shoulders in place, otherwise, they would slip off rather easily. So be certain you measure accurately before the final attachment to the yoke portion of the jumpsuit, because that is the only place to adjust the bodice length after the shoulder seams are complete.

There is no underarm side seam because the front and back bodice pieces overlap to create the side closure. This area is really low if you don't check the placement of the overlap. After making sure it was set correctly for my level of comfort, I then hand tacked it in place to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions.

Alterations:

Made the inseam 3.5"
1.5" FBA
Left off the pockets
Tacked down the front and side overlaps

You picked the perfect fabric! The fit is perfect too. If this is cut too tight, too lose or too short it just would work. What a wonderful piece!
