Every once in awhile I love a good, rewarding sew. Something that requires a bit more thought and time but the result is usually well worth it. The Cafe Romper from Sew Straight and Gather is just that.
With details like a hidden button/snap placket, mandarin collar, bodice contrast, belt loops, and matching belt, this romper looks so professional. The bodice yoke can also be pleated which is a stunning look! In sizes 2-14, I will be using this pattern for years to come!
The belt is one of my favorite things!
The snap placket makes for easy potty breaks too!
I think this will be a favorite outfit come back to school. She loves how comfortable it is and didn’t want to take it off!
It can be made sleeveless and with shorts or a knee length skirt making this a year-round pattern! I think a skirt version is in our future.
As with all of Terri’s patterns, the tutorial on this one is so thorough and I always learn something new. It comes together easily and smoothly and really didn’t take much more time to sew it up than it did for me to pick which fabric to use (that’s ALWAYS the hardest part!). The instructions have clickable links to make it super user friendly and the pattern is layered and no-trim! I absolutely love my SSG patterns and the whole experience of sewing up her patterns.
