Rayna's Romper was the first tie-back romper of its kind!  This adorable romper is perfect for spring and summer.  Besides the tie-back, this pattern also features a sweetheart shaped front bodice, elastic back waist, and a cuffed, looser leg option or a shirred, bubble leg option. The babies pattern includes a button back strap version with buttons since a knot on the back may be uncomfortable to babies who spend most of their time on their back. This pattern works best with wovens, but many  have upcycled t-shirts to use as the bodice (tutorial HERE). Get creative with rayon challis or lace to create that one-of-a-kind, fun, yet girlie, outfit your daughter or boutique customers will love! The sky is the limit now let’s see what YOU can do with it!

Adorable Romper!

What a cute little outfit! It only took me a little less than a yard of fabric to make a 2T romper. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Adorable finished result!

Awesome pattern

I love this pattern! Super fast to sew up and is a great summer outfit! Super cute! I love the straps on the back of the bodice. The instructions are well written and very easy to understand.

super cute for the playground

Sometimes we just need shorts and this romper ensures everything is covered (even the tummy for climbing and flipping). Add some flutters for extra cuteness. I've added a cute waist "sash" with bow in the front or leave the top plain & embroider. You can even add the pockets from brennas bubble shorts or just add a skirt to this top instead of the shorts. Leave off the top and add 2" for a waist casing & some elastic. You're good to go! So many things you can do with these pieces = great value for purchase. 4 stars only because these pieces are in other patterns & not "original"
