I was so excited to test out the new Bonfire Basics Collection for Petite Stitchery last week. The Bonfire Basics Collection is so fun for Fall. I am just in love with all the options jam packed into ONE pattern! You can make an entire mini capsule out of one pattern, that is a total win in my book!
This pattern is so versatile offering options for days! Here are the options you can pick from:
*Three different romper styles with 2 different closure options (snaps or envelope back)
*Separates: tee (banded or hemmed), harem pants
*2 sleeve lengths: short or banded long
*Optional pockets, patches, flutters and ruffles!
Since it’s still sweltering hot here in South Florida I opted for short sleeves on both of the rompers I sewed up. I also did sleeve flutters and the ruffle romper on both because I am a sucker for those girly details.
For the first romper I used up some camo print I had in my stash from Girl Charlee and paired it with a cheery solid pink that I had from Purple Seamstress. If you are looking for a great selection of cotton lycra solids Purple Seamstress is the place to shop! I added a little glitter heat transfer vinyl as well at the last minute! Don’t be intimidated by the snaps if you have never done them before. They are seriously so easy and make diaper changes so convenient. But, if you have a love/hate relationship with snaps the envelope romper option has NO snaps at all. I made this romper in a straight 6 month size with a rolled hem on the ruffles and flutters; while it is a tiny bit big still it should fit great through the entire Fall season.
For my second romper I wanted something with a bit more of a Fall feel to it so I used this navy Jolene floral paired with a solid rust that I just swooned over. They are both from Knitpop but I believe the floral is currently sold out. They are my absolute favorite shop to buy fabric from: they have lightning fast shipping, incredible customer service, have frequent sales, and a customer reward program. I also did a straight 6 month size for this romper but used a traditional hem for my ruffles and flutters instead of the rolled hem I used on the camo romper. This made the length on the pants a little shorter making it a perfect fit for right now.
I can’t wait to sew up the dress version and some separates for everyday wear! This pattern is on sale for a short time so scoop it up here and whip up a mini Fall capsule for your babe! I’d love to see what you create:)
