If you are looking for a super cute and super quick summer outfit to make, the Shirred Bubble Romper from Whimsy Couture is it! I was restless the other night and not ready for bed, so decided to give this a try. It went from a thought in my head to finished in just a couple of hours and I'm tickled with the adorable results!
The pattern, by name, does require shirring. I tried a new elastic thread recommended by and purchased from Pink Fig and I must say, I am sold! Much better shirring results! The brand is Stretch-Rite and it's what I'll be using from now on!
I didn't even have to steam it to get it to gather like this!
The pattern also includes instructions for making fabric flowers like the one I attached to the front. The darling gingham button is from Riley Blake Designs.
I used a printed satin ribbon for the ties and love the sweetness it adds! The pattern instructions include other options also.
Whimsy Couture patterns were some of the first PDF patterns I ever used. Her selection continues to grow and she is a super nice person, always eager to help when needed! I have many of her patterns in my collection and will most definitely be making this sweet romper again....probably very soon! :)
Summer sewing is on!
