Daphne is here, in all of it’s amazing, on trend, summery goodness, and I’m crazy about it. I’m sure you have tons of ideas for making beautiful things from this pattern, but add a romper hack to it, and the possibilities go wild!!
We’ll use the romper bottoms from the Lillian pattern for this tutorial! Here’s what you’ll need:
-Daphne bodice pattern piece
-Lillian bodice pattern piece
-Lillian short or pant pattern piece
The only thing that will need to be adjusted is Daphne’s bodice. I started with a fresh copy printed out, uncut, so I’d have room to trace over it. Cut out your front bodice pattern piece from Lillian, and place it over the bodice pattern piece for Daphne. Line up the “Fold” edges, and match the bottom of both armscyes, horizontally. Then trace around the side and bottom of your Lillian pattern piece.
Now you have a Daphne bodice that is long enough, and narrow enough to fit on the Lillian bottoms! I smoothed out the line a little to make sure the side seam doesn’t have any weird bumps.
Construct your bodice per the Daphne tutorial, and your bottoms per the Lillian tutorial.
Then the construction is the same in both tutorials for attaching them together.
Sew your casing, right sides together. And I love this tip to sew my elastic in the round. No more threading!!
Turn it right side out, and you’re done! Rompers are my daughter’s favorite…she’s happy to model any new one I make her. Check out a few more photos from this mash up 🙂
Also pictured with the black romper is the knit headband! Such a cute addition to any look! I’m excited to see what you all make 🙂
