Simple Life Pattern Company just released Pippa’s Scalloped Romper & Dress and I was lucky enough to test this gorgeous pattern for them.
Pippa’s is an advanced beginner pattern for woven fabrics with sizing that runs from 2T up to size 12. You can opt for a circle shorts romper (hello amazing twirl!) or a dress in vintage or knee length. There are optional ruffles on both the romper and the dress and the back has a gorgeous scalloped detail with dainty shoulder ties.
My ten year old is romper obsessed and was so excited to wear this! We opted for the no ruffle romper option and added a decorative fringe trim to the bodice. Her measurements are all over the place so we used a size 6 waist, size 8 chest and size 12 length. It can be pretty daunting to mash all those sizes together but it was very clear in the tutorial and very easy to get the perfect sizing. Don’t let the scalloped details on the back intimidate you either! You will have a tracing template for these pieces making it so easy to follow the curves and get them to lay just right. I bought the fabric and trim at Hobby Lobby and it is the perfect print for summer right around the corner!
The pattern is on sale 20% off through March 25 (happy birthday to me!) and I can’t wait to see yours sewn up. If you buy this pattern (or the others!) on sale let us know what you think!
