Get Your ROMP On!!!

     Wow! I've been busy, busy, busy these last few weeks of July! Orders, sewing for nieces and nephews birthdays, and testing patterns!!! I really enjoy testing. I love helping designers work out the kinks in their new designs, making it perfect before they release it to the public.       

     The first children's pattern I tested this month is the RaglanRomp by A Sparkly Baby.

WARNING: be prepared for cuteness overload!

Featuring a unique, adorable bum flap, this pattern does have a slightly smaller size range: preemie to 3T. But, the flap is perfect for fast diaper changes and frustrating for toddlers that love stripping naked (go ahead, ask me how I know).  Perhaps she will release a larger size range at a later, but it's perfect the way it is.

Let's talk options, because this pattern's got them. Your choice of length: short or long. Your choice of pockets: breast or kangaroo. Making it a halter raglan or adding a scrappy side panel. Optional additions: fold-over mitts, bum ruffles, and hoodie--with pattern pieces and picture tutorials for ALL of it!!!

Plus---additional custom sizes in 24 month, 2T, and 3T.

While these are not a difficult sew, there are multiple steps especially if you add-on any of the additional cuteness. There are plenty of detailed pictures to help you but these do take a little longer to sew than a quick t-shirt. I would say an Advanced Beginner would have no issues. If you do have issues, Taryn (the designer) will happily help you.

A loved putting her hands in the back bum piece even though I added the kangaroo pocket.

L loves wearing hers for pj's.

Whatcha waiting for??? Buy the pattern before August 1 using the code JOANNA1 and get 35% off.
