|Oh, my. No one has reviewed this pattern yet. Let me just jump right in...though in the Northern Hemisphere, there might not be a whole lot of use for this right now.|
Pullover top has shoulder ties. Romper and jumpsuits have front extending into tie ends, elasticized (seamed) dropped waist bodice/upper back, and narrow hems. B, C and D: attached tie. Pants have elastic waist. A and E: purchased trim. B, C, D and E: ruffles. C and E: back pockets with bow/knot.
Childrens/girls multi-sized, either 2,3,4,5 or 6,7,8. I used size 4
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, almost exactly.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Halter style on little girls can be tricky. I liked that this one provides decent coverage, no gapping. As far as dislikes, this one does have to be tied in the back, and untied to get it off. Need a parent close-by during wearing since she can't do that on her own, and no way to use the restroom unless someone helps out.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes. It worked just fine as written.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If she outgrows this one and wants a new romper, I would. Not sure if she will want one exactly the same next year. I would definitely use the top and change the bottom to a maxi-skirt or use the pants/shorts part of the pattern to make it into a two-piece outfit if she'd rather I do it that way. Wouldn't recommend for young children who are at that stage where they don't want help with dressing because they will just get frustrated with the halter ties in the back.
I needed to make up something for my daughter that utilized a strangely printed quilting cotton she had chosen. This pattern worked perfectly for those purposes.
