Ring Around the Rosie Romper - PR&P Pattern Tour

Hey there! Today, I’m sharing my version of the super sweet Ring Around the Rosie Romper and Dress pattern by Puzzle Patterns. The pattern features a dress version, a romper version and you can even make stand alone bloomers. The pattern even goes up to size 10. Hello coordinating sibling sets! You can also choose between strap ruffles or plain straps. 

I stitched up the romper version for my spunky 15-month-old. I love how even simple fabric choices look adorable with this pattern. I used a premade trim instead of making my own ruffles because let’s face it, with a VERY curious toddler, who has time for those handmade details? I also chose to stitch the buttons INSIDE the back of the romper since all buttonholes are not created equal. 

I tend to dread things with elastic in the legs because stitching elastic while actually keeping it straight is not my strong suit. If you’re like me don’t be daunted because this sweet pattern has bias leg casings, yay! The whole thing went together pretty quickly since the bottom is one continuous piece. This is definitely a beginner friendly pattern; I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of assembly.  

By the way shooting an overactive toddler is not that much fun. She was definitely happiest when not trying to be coached by mama. 

The Ring Around the Rosie Pattern is one of the new patterns being added to the Project Run and Play Pattern Shop. Be sure to check out the other patterns that were stitch by some of your favorite seamstresses on the Project Run & Play Blog.
