Romper with Design Variations | 360-Degree View
With the Named Clothing Anni Building Block Pattern, enjoy a pattern developed to create multiple variations of a jumpsuit, romper, or dress. The design includes a bodice with three necklines and three sleeve types. Below the waistline, complete your garment with straight-leg trousers, shorts with a hem flounce, or a princess-seamed pencil skirt. The neckline choices are jewel, V shape, and jewel with an inset keyhole into the V shape, an effect that resembles a spread collar. Sleeve options include an off-the-shoulder gathered ruffle that runs into the front and back bodice princess seams; short sleeve; and long sleeve, with a cuff flounce. The building-block approach enables sewers to choose alternative looks, and the pattern company mentions 36 possible variations. These patterns are well drafted with matching notches and seamlines. Use medium-weight woven fabrics with drape, such as washed silk, crepe de Chine, and faille.

As shown, the design was sewn using the pattern options for the jewel neckline, long sleeve with a cuff flounce, and shorts with a hem flounce. The fabric is stretch cotton sateen from MoodFabrics.com. If you wish for softer cuff and shorts hem flounces, select a fabric with more drape, as the cotton sateen created wide, stiff flounces.
