So, you must be familiar with my Mallory ruffled dress pattern that I released last year. This year, I’ve developed a similar design for rompers, The Mallory Romper Pattern!

All the fabrics used here are of 44/ 45 inches width.

The fabrics shown here are only for illustration purposes and as such may vary from the original.

The seam allowance is 3/8inch unless otherwise specified.

I suggest you read the entire pattern once before starting to get a general idea.

All seams are to be finished by zigzag or serger.

 

Fabric Requirements

Table1

 

Gather the supplies.

 

Measurements

Table-2

 

** In the table below, “L” stands for the length and “W” stands for the width of the fabric piece to be cut.

 

Cut the pattern template for the romper shorts at the end of this PDF. Take the fabric for the romper, fold it lengthwise to fit the width of the template and keep the template on the fold as shown above. Mark and cut to get one piece of your romper shorts. Repeat the steps to get one more piece.

 

Refer table-2 to get the measurements for the top part of the romper and cut the top pieces with the required dimensions. Mark the top and side edges to avoid messing up.

 

You will get your top pieces and shorts pieces like the above (note that in the picture, the shorts pieces are not kept opened).

 

Cut your ruffle pieces, referring to the table-2 above.

 

Take the front and back top pieces, layer them lining up the edges and fold in half widthwise. Cut the appropriate pattern template for the arm hole and keep it at the top left hand corner.

 

Mark and cut out the armhole. Discard the smaller piece.

 

Open the folds and you will get your front and back top pieces like the above.

 

Let’s finish the armholes. For that you can either use the readymade bias tape or make your own, referring to the tutorial here, https://sewcraftyme.com/how-to-sew-a-bias-tape.html.

 

 

Cut the single- folded bias tape into 10-inch pieces. Take one of the tape pieces, place it slightly curved and press using plenty of steam (this will make it easy to attach along the armhole curve).

 

Open one of the folds of the bias tape and align its edge along the edge of the armhole, on the right side of the fabric as shown above and pin.

 

Sew the bias tape on to the armhole along the edge, removing the pins as you go.Turn the bias tape over to its right side and topstitch along the seam line of the tape and the armhole as shown in the picture.

 

Fold the bias tape completely over to the wrong side of the fabric and press. Sew along the folded edge of the tape to secure.

Repeat the same with the other armholes.

 

Keep the back piece over the front piece, with the right sides together, aligning the edges and sew both the side seams shut as marked by the lines. Take care to reinforce at the start and finish.

Let’s prepare the ruffles.

 

Layer the ruffle pieces with the right sides together, lining up the edges and sew along the two short edges to join and make a fabric ring.

 

Press the seams open.

Next, we hem the ruffle.

 

Fold one of the long edges by 1/2- inch twice and press. Sew down the hem along the edge of the fold.

 

Next, we pin the ruffle piece to the romper. For that we need to mark the top center of the ruffle and the romper.

 

Keep the ruffle ring on it’s right side, fold it widthwise in half and mark the top center as shown above.

 

Similarly, fold the romper top in half, lengthwise and mark the top center.

 

Place the ruffle ring above the romper top, with the center marks in line and the hemline facing the top. Slide the romper top into the ruffle ring.

 

Line up the top edge of the romper top with the top edge of the ruffle and pin all along. *Note that since the ruffle is longer than the neck line, it is left free on both the sides.

 

Sew along the pinned edge to join.

Zigzag along the entire raw edge of the ruffle and neckline to prevent fraying.

 

Next, we make the casing for the neck line elastic.

 

Fold the top edge of the ruffle (and neck line) by 5/8- inch towards the wrong side and press all around. Sew along the edge of the fold, leaving about 3/4- inch to insert the elastic.

 

Take the required length of the elastic, referring to the table-2 above. Insert the elastic through the opening, using a safety pin.

 

Keep the ends of the elastic overlapped and sew back and forth to join.

 

Sew the opening in the casing shut.

 

Our top is almost done, let’s move on to the romper shorts.

 

 

Take the two fabric pieces for the romper shorts and layer them with the right sides together and aligning the edges. Sew along the two curved edges as marked by the black line above.

 

 

Open up and you will see it looking almost like a pair of shorts.

 

Now we need to attach the top of the romper to the shorts.

 

Fold the top of the romper lengthwise, aligning the side seams and make a mark at the center of the lower edge (this has to align later with the center seam of the shorts).

 

 Let’s attach the top to the shorts.

 

Keep the shorts on its wrong side and the top on its right side, with its upper edge facing the upper edge of the shorts and slide the top into the shorts. Make sure that the mark on the top and the center seam of the shorts fall in line.

 

Align the upper raw edge of the shorts with the lower edge of the top and pin all around.

 

Sew the top to the shorts, leaving a seam allowance of 5/8- inches. Zig zag to prevent fraying. *Note that here we make use of the seam allowance to make a casing for the waist elastic.

 

Pull out the top and you will see that it has started looking like a romper already.

 

Fold the seam upwards and sew along its edge to make a casing for the elastic. Leave a 1-inch gap to insert it.

 

Take the required length of the elastic, referring to the table-2 above and insert it through the casing, using a safety pin.

Keep the ends of the elastic overlapping and sew it shut.

 

Sew the opening in the casing shut, along the edge.

 Let’s finish the hemline of the romper shorts.

 

Fold the lower edge by ¼ -inch and press. Fold by another ½- inch and press again.

 

Sew down the hem along the edge. Repeat the steps on the other leg of the shorts.

 

Now we can insert the elastic through the hem of the shorts.

 

Take the required length of elastic, referring to the table-2 above and insert the elastic through the hem. Secure the ends by sewing back and forth a few times

 

Sew the inseams shut as marked by the black lines above.
