Made for Mermaids recently released the perfect dress pattern for ladies and the most adorable romper for babies. Mama Adeline, Adeline (for girls), and Baby Adeline. I had the pleasure of testing the Mama and Baby versions and I’m smitten.
The ladies version has a mini, dress, and maxi length. I made a straight size blue and I chose the dress length. I adjusted the bodice for my height and didn’t add any length to the skirt. There is also an option for short sleeves, and long bishop sleeves which are adorable. I also chose the keyhole back but there is a scoop back or normal back. I also love how the neck and keyhole are finished with binding. I used to HATE binding but now that I have a coverstitch I think it’s my favorite way to finish edges. It looks more professional and clean!
This adorable romper was made using a woven bottom! You do have the choice to use knit for the bottom too. The knit fabric I chose is a very stable cotton lycra with great stretch and recovery. I love a dress pattern that accommodates several different types of knits. A lot of testers used double brushed poly and those looked great as well. Their skirts looked a little more flowy than mine. But I do love how the cotton lycra works for this!
And did you see, did you see!? It has pockets!! You can do inseam or slat, which is what I chose.
I know this will be a summer staple!
You can also grab the bundle and save!
Thanks for reading and supporting the crisis!!
