While reviewing the results of this week’s 90s Nostalgia contest, it dawned on me that we’re overdue for some floral romper/overall ideas to satisfy our hunger for a modern take on comfortable, throwback fashion. Today, we’ve gathered together a handful of cozy and stylish rompers for all ages, sizes, tastes and sewing abilities. This weekend, sew the romper of your dreams.
Our new Poly Crepe de Chine would be perfect for making rompers like these. You could also try Cotton Lawn Ultra and Cotton Poplin!

If you’ve never worked with a polyester crepe fabric before (for example, Poly Crepe de Chine), Salme Pattern Shop offers some tips about working with it:
“Polyester crepe is a great, wallet-friendly alternative. It’s woven from hard spun yarn which gives it a crisp, textured surface. Unlike most polyester fabrics this one has a matte finish, making it look a lot more expensive than it really is.

Ideal projects vary from tailored suits to floaty dresses and tops. I would recommend taking advantage of the beautiful drape and using it for dresses and skirts with wide hems.

The drape might fool you into thinking this is a light weight fabric, but it comes in a variety of weights. Because of the rough texture you might end up with quite bulky seams so grading seam allowances is recommended.

It’s a hard wearing so you’ll end up with a garment that will last for decades – provided you sew it well!”
