Pattern Details

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.


Pattern includes sizes newborn to age 12 years… and it’s super cute on babies!

    Great pattern, quick and easy to make with plenty of options to suit every season.

    This is a fantastic base romper pattern that you can make your own so easily. If you’re comfortable, or once you are comfortable with bias, it’s also a very quick sew.

    It is the perfect summer shorts romper and an amazing layering romper for the fall and spring. It was a super easy sew and went super fast. It is a definite buy.

    It is a well written and very concise pattern. Everything you need to make the garment is there. At the end of making it, you will have a lovely outfit that can be used in both summer and cooler months by layering and different choice of fabrics. I’m a huge fan of French seams and I love that this was frenched seamed throughout. I think it is a great technique for people who are beginning to sew to create a more professional looking garment.

    It is a great easy to follow pattern with good instructions! I loved learning the encased waist elastic as I’ve never done that before & your instructions made it easy peasy 🙂

    An all around must for spring, summer and fall.

    Perfect for summer and spring with boho chic flair. Dress it up or down, this pattern won’t disappoint. For smaller sizes has snap options which not other designers think to consider. Not only that there are many more options and new techniques you learn throughout the pattern. This is a must have for you spring/summer collections!

    Get it! The finished product is well worth your time and effort.

    The finished seams made it feel professional and good quality. I like the extra security the French seam will provide for an active toddler.

    If you’re looking for a cute, on the trend style, and super quick to make this would be the pattern to make.

    I love the nostalgia of this pattern, it reminded me of something my sister and I would have worn on summer holidays (in either matching or reverse colours!). I also love that it is a play-suitable item, kids can move comfortably and easily use the bathroom.

    This is a versatile romper/playsuit. It can be short for summer of layered for more chilly climates. It is bang on trend right now.

    Sara Verdin (verified owner)

    I definitely recommend it as a quick sew with great results. I loved all the pictures that are included & the easy to follow directions. The finished garment is really adorable.

    It is the perfect pattern for anytime of year. With the long trouser or shorts option. Can wear a shirt under or style with a jacket in cooler months. Just a darling classic style.

    BUY BUY BUY! Match it with funky fabrics or keep it simple with one fabric! Each and every one will be different!

    It’s a a nice easy sew that comes together nicely and doesn’t require alot of time or thought.

    It was easy to make and probably something that my daughter can make on her own (with my help, of course). She loves making her own clothes and would enjoy the simplicity of this.

    Great all around pattern, lots of different looks for all year round from summer to winter. Nice pattern, fun to make and you will love the outcome.

    The Teatime Romper is very versatile with a lot of options. You can really make it your own. I liked how the waist seam was all enclosed. I’ve made other patterns that don’t do this, and it’s a nice touch.

    Julie McBrien (verified owner)

    It’s a lovely pattern that would look adorable during warm weather but that the added elasticity of it means it’s also perfect for layering in colder weathers. There are so many options that it can easily be tailored to suit the child and is definitely suitable for the age range of 0-12. Love discovering French seams again. These are often missed out in favour of serging/overlocking on modern PDF patterns so it was fun to do them again and gave a much better finish.

    There is versatility with the pattern and is perfect year round. I’m considering making one that ties at the top of the shoulders instead of using the elastic to see how it turns out.

    PURCHASE IT! It’s a lovely, simple pattern with many options for customization. It will be part of my daughters personal wardrobe for years to come. I love how simple it is to put together but turns out very cute. I also love how you explained the French seam. I had my non-sewing hubby read over that & even he understood.

    It was so easy to use, and the results were beautiful!

    I would say this pattern takes a little time but the end result was worth it. The instructions and photos were very clear and helpful.
