Bird cloth Sirli baby romper pattern!

Mar 13, 2017 12:00:00 AM

The baby romper sewing pattern is finding more and more followers! Thank you very much. Notably to Caroline from une Souris à Paris for all her versions, in particular that of the bloomer.

It' s the occasion for us to rework the pattern so that it corresponds as well as possible to your expectations. In the coming weeks, you will find the model in a new pocket with the addition of the 24 and 36 months sizes.

Our little A also often wears his Sirli romper . That sewn birdie version looks good on him, doesn't it?

For information: The little A is 12 months old, 77 cm high, 8,5 kg. He wears the romper in size 9 months. It' s just a little tight at the waist.

For more comfort at waist level, we advise you to use a mesh elastic band . much softer than a classic ribbed elastic.

The fabric used is the beige bird cottonade, we also have the grey and the blue one .

Take some single piping or Lurex to make the outline of the romper!
