Hot! MTL: Favorite Nickname Romper

Original Inspiration



  • I've picked a pattern with straps. I think with a romper, straps are probably a good thing.

  1. I can’t see the line-drawing for the McCall’s pattern in your picture above :( (But I can see it when I click on the link you’ve given to the McCall’s site.))
    Re: straps I’d maybe use some lightweight rigilene boning along the princess seams at the front via channels of fabric stitched inside of a lining layer. And, I’d also alter the pattern on the back to turn the darted back-bodice into separate pieces… in order to add boning to the back. That way the bodice would not fall down at the neckline to expose “frontage” LOL!
    Plus, you could always make the straps detachable – with little hooks on the ends and loops inside of the neckline à la many RTW strapless dresses you see in the shops :)
