Rompers have been one of my favorite things to sew and wear this season. So, it should come as no surprise that when Jalie was looking for testers for their new Bonnie pattern, I jumped at the chance!
This romper features narrow straps, princess seams, encased elastic and best of all…. POCKETS (in the shorts)!
I thought the overall fit of this project was very flattering – even though there is a “blouse” effect over the elastic, it’s small enough that it doesn’t make you look or feel frumpy. Like all Jalie patterns, this one runs true to size so I didn’t find myself needing to make any alterations – so it was perfect right off the bat!
As for fabric, I used a lightweight cotton\rayon floral print (that I believe I got from So Sew English quite awhile ago, but it’s been sitting in my stash long enough that I can’t be certain). I thought that this was a great weight for this pattern – it had plenty of stretch, but it’s was light enough that it had great drape… and it’s perfect for these really HOT temperatures that we’ve been having.
