My current favourite baby sewing pattern

Monday, May 11, 2015

Before I had Isabel, I looked high and low for a cotton bubble romper sewing pattern. I found one from one of the Big Pattern Manufacturers but it had a zipper down the back. I hate sewing zippers! The other day, I came across the perfect pattern from Puperita on Etsy

I sewed version A with the buttons on the shoulders though I made a few adjustments. I lined the top instead of bias binding the edges. It was just a little quicker and easier for me than doing the binding. I also used KAM snap instead of buttons because I don't like sewing button holes! Instead of binding the leg openings, I shirred them with some soft elastic. This is a really great pattern with and is easy to customize to your liking. It's hot here already so I think I'll be making quite a few of these this summer!

Here's the photo from Puperita so you can see the changes I made.

I made the one Izzy is wearing in chambray but also bought some gingham and some pastel, summery checker fabric. I'd like to get some nice eyelet too... I am totally addicted to sewing baby clothes.


  1. This is so pretty! I have so many friends with babies or babies on the way, so this is perfect. Thanks for sharing the pattern!

  2. I'm sure you have a few emery boards around the house or at the bottom of your purse to file your fingernails. Emery is also used to sharpen pins and needles and keep them free of burrs that will snag your fabric. "sewing machine for beginners

  3. This is so sweet. I am having my first baby boy and planning to get a sewing machine for beginner so I could easily learn some new patterns. Thank you for an awesome post.
