**FULL Baby Romper Pattern in more sizes now available in my pattern shop!**
This post is sponsored by Fabric.com!
I’m thrilled to share this pattern with you, I had a blast designing it with fabric and trim from Fabric.com! I was going for a vintage-inspired boho feel to this little baby romper and I’m excited about how it turned out! I think it’s pretty cute on my little doll baby! This romper/sunsuit is quick to sew, believe it or not, and there’s a free pattern in this post! The crotch has snaps for easy diaper access and the cute gathered front, back and legs might burst your ovaries ;)

Fabric selection: I used Liberty of London lawns for these rompers. I have never actually sewn with Liberty fabric before this. Sewing with Liberty of London fabric is sort of a “sewing bucket list” item, it’s beautiful fabric and perfect for clothes. It was fun to check that item off my list, but really it only made me want to sew with it more! Such gorgeous fabric with a beautiful hand. I paired each floral print with a Cotton + Steel solid, the colors went together super well and creating each pairing was half the fun! Fabric.com has lots of Liberty of London florals . It’s wide fabric, 58″, so one yard will go pretty far! I recommend purchasing at least 1/2 yard but you won’t use the whole half yard for the romper. Here are the fabrics I used:
- Liberty Lawn Gemma Blue/Multi with Cotton + Steel seafoam
- Liberty Lawn Dynasty Yellow with Cotton + Steel goldilocks
- Liberty Lawn Mauvey Blue with Cotton + Steel gale force
Browse the whole selection of Liberty Lawns and Cotton + Steel solids and make your own pairings!
Print the pattern: Print the pattern pieces on 8.5″ by 11″ or A4 paper. Trim the edges of the paper along the lines and tape together as shown:
Cut out the following from fabric:
- 2 snap plackets from floral
- 1 front on fold from floral
- 1 back on fold from floral
- 2 yoke on fold from solid
- 2 snap plackets interfacing
Fold the straps in half longwise and press. Then sew one short edge and the long edge. Clip the corner and turn it right side out. Press again. Repeat with other strap.
Baste the straps to the top of the yoke, 3/8″ from the top of the yoke, with the yoke’s right side facing up. Place the second yoke on top of the first yoke with the WRONG side up. Sew around the sides and top of the yoke, sandwiching the straps in between. Clip the corners and turn. Press well.
Place the lace on the front of the yoke, with the top edges hanging slightly over the top edge. Sew it on with white thread sewing over the thickest parts of the lace. The stitching won’t show up very well so it will look great. Fold the edges over the side and stitch.
The back will look something like this:
Gather the front piece by sewing two rows of basting stitches along the top, about 3/8″ and 1/4″ from the top edge. Pull the stitches to gather the fabric so that it matches the length of the yoke piece.
Match the front to the yoke with right sides together, leaving 3/8″ of the front on either end of the yoke. Stitch together.
Finish seam allowance and press the seam allowance down. Then topstitch along the front right below the yoke.
With the extra fabric on the sides, fold under 3/8″ at the top to finish that edge, and be sure your topstitching catches it. This will finish the top edge to prepare it to attach to the back.
Finish the top edge of the back piece with a serger or zig zag stitch. Fold under 1/2″ at the top and press. Sew down 3/8″ from the top edge to create a casing
Use a safety pin to thread the 6″ piece of 1/4″ elastic through the casing. Sew the elastic to each end of the casing.
Sew the front to the back at the side seams with right sides together. Finish seam allowances.
bias tape in leg openings PHOTOS
Stitch along inside of the little crease that you pinned, about a scant 1/4″ from the edge.
Fold the bias tape over and press.
Sew along edge of the bias tape, creating a casing for the elastic.
To make the button placket, first fuse interfacing to the back of placket pieces. Then pin the placket piece to the crotch, centering the crotch piece in the middle of the placket piece. There should be approx 3/8″ on either side of the placket piece for seam allowance. Sew it on across the crotch piece, using a 3/8″ seam allowance.
Fold under 3/8″ on the other side of the placket piece. Press. Then fold the other side of the placket under and match the RIGHT sides together.
Sew the short edges together right beside the elastic gathering from the leg openings, about 3/8″ from the edges.
Clip the corners and trim seam allowance to 1/8″. Then turn the placket right side out. Press well. Right now it looks like a little pocket.
Sew along the top of the placket to finish it. Repeat on the other side of the crotch and then add three little snaps.
Tie the halter straps into a little bow and you’re done!

Approximately newborn size? I cannot find the size anywhere!
Is this supposed to be printed at “Print to Fit” Or just as is?
There isn’t a 1″ scale square to make sure it’s printed right :(
But cutest little romper!! I can’t wait to sew it up!
print at 100%, do not scale!
Oh my! This is just the sweetest thing. And your baby? Such a cute little bug.
I lvoe this pattern, but I could not print the instruction
EEP! I was beginning to think you’d forgotten you told us to be prepared for back. Imagine my surprise when I found it?!! These are SEW cute!! Thank you for the pattern, tutu & back & legs!!! You ROCK!!
What size is this pattern for please
Love this SO much, and am very new to sewing. My sweet girl is 4 months old now. Approximately how much should I add to this size if I want to make it for her at 6 months? Thanks!
These are so cute and your baby is gorgeous! How much & where would I need to increase to make both a 6 month and 12 month size? My granddaughter would look so cute in this romper.
Is there a way to make this for 3-6 months?
Why can’t I see the download for the pattern ???? Or am I stupid x
Oh, my, gawd!!! This is the sweetest little romper. Any plans to make this available for larger babies? I have a nearly 18-month-old that I would love to outfit in one of these :) Congrats on the beautiful baby girl!!!
Any chance you’ll be adding bigger sizes to this pattern, like from 6 mo to 2T? My niece is 6 months old and I’d love to make her a couple as she grows. Thanks!
Could you please add to your post the size of this? e.g. is it equivalent to 0000 or 000?
Sorry, I see that the size is there… it’s just rather hidden, not immediately obvious, and not on the pattern either :) Cute romper though.
What size does this fit?
Any chance you may be adding more sizes to this one? my niece would look adorable in these but she’s a size 2 T. I hope you do give us more size options, these to pets are just too cute!
I can’t get the pattern link to work and when I signed up for the newsletter I got the apron pattern not this pattern.
Nevermind I figured it out. Thanks for the great pattern.
What size is the pattern ???
What size is the pattern???
How would you scale the pattern for a 6 month baby romper?
Hi, what size is this for please?
Can’t wait to make one! Did you make your own bias tape for the leg openings? What size did you cut the fabric for that?
My placket pieces don’t seem big enough? Am I doing something wrong? Should I gather the crotch pieces a bit to fit or make the placket bigger?
How would I size this up to fit size 3-6 months?My baby is 23 inches long and 10 pounds. I’m worried the 0-3 month size won’t fit her.
My grand baby went and got too big for 0-3months clothing! ???? will you be providing a pattern for larger sizes?
Do you have a pattern for the headband??
This romper is incredible! I LOVE the shape, the fabric selection, and the lace detail. I don’t have any kids (yet) to try it on, but I imagine that it’s also a practical pattern for a baby with the elastic stretch and the bottom snaps. I think I may make one and just stash it for when I have a baby or as a gift for a friend’s baby! Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank you so much for the free pattern. The romper and your little one are both so cute.
Does the romper have sizing please?
Do you have this pattern available in larger sizes?
