The Sydney Romper and Pinafore



The Sydney Pinafore and Romper is a classic design that has been part of my life since I was a  little girl living in Australia.  My mum used to make me similar style dresses, which were perfect for playing in the sun and sand.  The Sydney has a bib style front, criss cross straps on the back, a flat front skirt, shorts or bubble shorts, and an elasticized back.  The dress can grow with the child from a dress to a tunic.  The bubble romper is perfect for babies and toddlers and includes a placket for easy diaper changes.

The Sydney is the perfect layering item!

This is a confident beginner friendly pattern.

The Sydney Romper and Pinafore pattern is available in sizes 3 months to 12 years.  It has an optional placket for the sunsuit romper and the curved shorts romper for easy diaper changes (up to size 2).

The sunsuit romper goes up to size 2.  The other 2 options go all the way up to size 12.

Pattern will be emailed after purchase.
