How to Sew a Romper? Free Pattern and Video Tutorial

Learn how to sew a romper with this free pattern and video tutorial. The free pattern is available in sizes XS, S, M, L, and XL and it is for a short and sleeveless romper. It has a nice halter neckline and an open back.  The romper fitted to the waist with an elastic.  To add interest you can add a waist band or a belt.




Rompers are perfect for warm weather and they are very stylish, look young, and are very easy to wear.  This model will look adorable in cotton fabric (solid or print), jean fabric will also work. or you can also use lace.

Layering the romper bodice with lace will give you the perfect outfit for a night out.




Another idea is to embellish the hemline and the armhole with a thin lace trim.
