Did it look like the cover photo? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The directions are easy to follow. Pictorial step-by-step instructions are included.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like that the pattern offers so many different options. Thought of a romper to me just meant that the pattern would include a pants length and a shorts length. This pattern goes way beyond the basics and allows you to craft the exact outfit you’d like without purchasing multiple patterns. The bodice is a blousy crossover that hugs your curves. I did not like how the elastic sat at my waist. It was probably more about my lack of confidence than how the pattern is created/designed.
Fabric Used: Sweater Knit from Joann’s
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made NO alterations to the pattern. I added a belt to my dress because I didn’t feel comfortable. The reason is probably really truly about the striped fabric. I think that if I’d chosen a floral or more busy print the elastic would not have bothered me.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, as the weather warms up I can see adding Megan Romper to my everyday wardrobe. I’ve already picked out a pretty purple fabric for the top and purple sequins for the pants. Now to find some sewing time!
