The Teatime Romper PDF sewing pattern has two leg length options (ankle and mid-thigh), an optional bow, an elasticised hem option, and for the smaller sizes a popper/snaps crotch option. Sizes newborn to 12 years.
The fit is comfortable around the chest so it’s perfect for layering in Autumn or Winter, or on it’s own in Spring or Summer. And the elasticated neckline means older children can easily dress themselves!
All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required… and no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at! That said, if you have a serger, tips are included for when and where to use it if you wish to.
The PDF tutorial includes clear descriptive photos for every step, computer drawn printable pattern pieces for sizes newborn to 12 years, instructions on how to cut the pattern out and simple, step by step instructions to complete your romper.
The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want. There is also an A0 format in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.
We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.
