Pattern Description:

Create an adorable sleeveless, summery, onesie-style romper for your little one. Choose from a plethora of options: THREE bodice style- 2 button and 1 does not, belly band styles- an assortment of stitch patterns for the belly band or skip the belly band altogether, ruffles on the backside, as well as three crochet finishing options.

The button band at the crotch allows for simplicity if your little one wears regular or cloth diapers, you are practicing Elimination Communication, or are potty learning. Sunny Days features the honeycomb slipped stitch on the button bands for stability and breathe-ability, and also as a belly band option. Use cotton or wool, or even blends of the two which is sometimes best since 100% cotton doesn't hold shape well.

This pattern will discuss how to create Sunny Days rompers to your child's measurements and tips for the techniques used. To create a Sunny Days romper you will need to know how to increase, decrease, make short rows, pick up stitches and you will need to have a basic grasp of math for customizations. This pattern is rated Advanced Beginner to Intermediate.
