Kids Romper Revamp
Sew a fashionable outfit for your little girl as adorable and one-of-a-kind as she is with Shelly Figueroa, the brainchild behind Figgy's Patterns.

Follow Shelly step-by-step as she makes a romper from her popular "Zephyr" pattern, which can be adapted to create up to five looks, including a pants jumpsuit, separates and a sundress. Shelly shows you how to accurately measure children and adjust patterns for a perfect fit. Learn to choose fabrics that will ensure your child's comfort year-round, as well as when and where to use different types of interfacing. Finish with sophisticated design elements like braided shoulder straps, button loops and hem ties that will elevate your garment from homemade to handmade.
