The Rose Bud Romper is a very special little summer romper for baby girls from 3 months to 3 years. Frilly and pretty with bow tie shoulders that allow for some adjustment in body length and snap fasteners at the crotch. The neckline and frills are stitched with a fancy machine stitch using glossy embroidery thread to add a special touch. Most sewing machines have a variety of fancy stitches to choose from --- just try out a few on your machine to see which is most suitable. The top stitching is optional.
SIZES: 000,00,0,1,2,3 --- to fit children 3 months to 3 years. Always check the size chart for a guide to your correct size --- the chest and height measurements are the best guide, these are body size measurements, ease has been added to the pattern.
EXPERIENCE: Intermediate. There are no buttons or buttonholes and you need only plain sewing skills but with intermediate sewing experience to make the romper; careful attention to seam allowances is important. Follow the sewing tutorial closely for best results.
