When one of my lovely former neighbours Sarah (Hi Sarah!) posted on her great sewing blog about the Jack & Jill All-In-One Romper pattern from Bettsy Kingston she had tried for her gorgeous little boy, I went over and bought a copy of the pattern before I even finished reading her post.
This afternoon after the various jobs, customer appointments and visits to doctors I plonked myself down with a bit of test fabric and gave it a whirl, trying a self-modified version without the feet. If this little one is anything like her two older siblings, rompers with feet do not last long thanks to the Mummy inherited long legs.
The longest part of the whole sewing was putting the snaps in... gah snaps (Mental note to research getting a snap press of some kind.), but this is fantastic pattern. The sizing goes up to 18 months, and being able to use quilting cotton I can see me making quite a few of these.
Thanks Sarah for the new pattern!
