Whether your little one is a fan of catching frogs, jumping off the dock and doing cannonballs or sitting and watching the fireflies the Rain City Cottage Romper is designed to be as versatile as it is comfy.
I want to help you create this romper with ease so I’ve broken down how to sew each Cottage Romper option with step-by-step video tutorials and simple text instructions so that from start to finish you’ll feel like a pro. Make it your own and choose the options you want to sew from pockets, short sleeves or long sleeves, shorts and pants length, hood, snap placket (*ahem* for easy access to diapers ), and more.
Once you understand how each option is sewn you're able to mix and match the options in so many ways you may never need another pattern!
And without any of the struggle reading and rereading how to sew a sleeve or asking yourself, “does this look right ?”.
I know you’re creative so let’s dive into the creation of your own Cottage Romper together and create a comfy, cozy and ridiculously cute outfit.
