Blog tour: Pimp that pattern "The flutterby romper"

I've just post about how lucky I was being a tester for the flutterby romper and the flutterby playsuit from LittleKiwisCloset and said there are mores to come.

Here they come... 

Welcome to the Pimp that pattern blog tour

You may wonder (me too at first) what's the Pimp??? Well, amazing Lydia, the designer behind LittleKiwisCloset encourages us to alter the pattern and create our own style. I think this pimp out of the box is not easy because the pattern itself give you a lot and lot and lot of options already.

This time I made the matchy romper for both of my girl. 

The big sissy got the retro style romper. 

The pattern gives you the ruffle neck option in size 0-4 yrs. But I made this in size 5 for my young lady.

I did alter the pattern a bit by lengthen neck elastic so it looks almost off shoulder and I use soft double lace to get the look I want.

The little sissy's romper is in the coordinate printed fabrics. Actually, the pattern fits is just right but this romper seems to be loose because I made her the bigger size. She is growing like a weed lately and I want the longer use of this cutie.

I tried to make it to be a high waist rompet but since I sew it in bigger size the waist elastic sits up on her natural waist instead. I may get the looks I want in the next 2 month, I guess. ;)

I did the bias hem at the flutter sleeves and love them that way. I plan to make the short sleeves top with flutter in the next romper I make. I can imagine many many of this romper come out with bits of difference here and there. 

What I love about this pattern is the tons of option provided. You've got 5 sleeves styles to go with 4 bottom styles to mix up and create your own looks. They also come in the wide size range from nb to 12 yrs. With one pattern, I can make the romper for both of my girls and make them in variety styles. What's not to love about these!
