Summer of Sewing--Satya Romper

Rompers are simply adorable. And they are easy to sew. When rompers first started coming back into style, I had horrible flashbacks to my childhood of hideous styles and impossible to get off rompers when I had to go to the bathroom. Thankfully the Satya romper is not one of these styles! 

I'm honored to be participating in the Poolside Beach Party blog tour with lots of awesome bloggers. Check in each day on the Sprouting JubeJube blog for links to all the posts. Enter the different giveaways. And don't forget to read to the very end of my post for the discount coupon codes from a few generous shops! (This post contains affiliate links.

The Satya romper pattern was created by (affiliate link) Jennuine Designs. I first sewed this pattern last year when I was in her tester group. That was this bitty girl was a wee few months old. She was so tiny, that I made her the newborn size. This summer she is just over a year old and I was able to make her a 9-12 month. 

I chose to make the romper and didn't include any snaps in the crotch. The romper is easy to remove for diaper changes, but really I think it would be more convenient to have snaps. So next time I will add the snaps.
I also chose to put elastic in the legs of the romper. I adore the little bubble look that it adds to the outfit. 
This gorgeous romper would be perfect to put on after a day at the pool or beach. It's cool and breezy and easy to put on when you are finished swimming. Use those adorable pockets for collecting shells or other treasures while you take a break from the water.
The back of the romper is just as cute as the front. Those straps are made out of fold-over elastic (FOE), which really has excellent stretch and recovery. FOE used to be a bit of a challenge to find, but I have noticed in recent years that many of the local shops are carrying a very nice selection. If you don't want to use FOE, instructions are given in the pattern for fabric covered elastic straps, which look equally adorable. Those FOE straps are what makes the romper easy to put on and easy to remove.
This pattern is available in sizes newborn through 12 years. I love sewing clothes in smaller sizes. They take very little fabric and sew up so quickly that you can easily have a new outfit in no time at all! Other options include:

  • playsuit length
  • romper length
  • optional snaps added to the crotch
  • FOE straps
  • fabric covered elastic straps
