Do you remember that sweet baby romper you dressed your little girl in when she was so tiny? The soft, cozy one with a snuggly onesie below and a flowy dress above? It always stayed neatly in place and made her feel safe and warm. My Baby Girl Romper will allow your little mommy in training to wrap that same sweet memory around her favorite playmate. A perfect play outfit for baby dolls like Bitty Baby that will work year round and can be sewn over and over to create a trunk full of special memories.
The My Baby Girl Romper PDF sewing pattern even comes with two delightful romper styles and an all-in-one sewing construction, making it child’s play for her little hands to dress her baby. You will appreciate the easy sewing construction (no binding needed) and the simple elastic leg casing that allows plenty of room to go over My Baby Diaper as well. Bitty Twin sisters can rest assured we haven’t forgotten their brothers, but this one is all about surrounding her in comfortable tradition everyone remembers.

This pattern was very cute and I loved the end result - just like the little sunsuits my babies lived in their first summer! I made both the pleated and gathered versions. The gathered version was quite a bit easier and the shoulders matched exactly, where on the pleated version they were slightly off. After several attempts to get the pleats to line up properly, I ended up folding the pattern piece on the lines and ironing the fabric into a fold over the pattern. I also topstitched around the whole dress because no matter how I pressed it, I could see just a bit of lining poking out. Best to topstitch before sewing the shoulder seams and the topstiching also hid the spot I couldn't seem to get sewn together just right where the romper and dress are supposed to separate in the back. The fit is a bit snug on the older bittys and twin dolls, but perfect for the newest, thinner bittys.
Really cute and easy to play with doll. One piece outfit is complete!
