Pattern Details

I named this easy romper Salina. In Spanish, the name means "salt pan". You'll understand why in a minute and if you ever seen a salt pan, like the ones out in the desert in the western US, you'll know what I'm talking about. Many years ago, I visited Etosha National Park in Namibia famous for its wide open views the salt pans and amazing wild animals. I vividly remember seeing the long, thin silhouettes of elegant giraffes. They seemed like mirages, like they were almost not even there. The lines and the shapes made them look narrower than they were. The design of this easy romper does the same thing and makes me look narrower than I really am, and I like the optical illusion. Believe me, at "5 feet nothing" I take all the help I can get. I wished I brought this romper with me while on vacation recently. The truth is I forgot it pinned to the mannequin. I also forgot the step-by-step pictures for the tutorials I was supposed to share with you 4 weeks ago. I am forever packing at the last minute and for the first time in my life I ended up with more cloths that I needed. The wrong kind unfortunately... To my surprise, I found myself wearing cloths a tad too fancy for walking miles under the blazing Tuscan sun --all because of my expanding waist line and the good food of Italy rendered the rest of my wardrobe unusable. Oh, how I wished I had my little "mirage" with me. So comfortable, versatile and slimming (my kind of diet..). So just in case you are in my shoes, join me in this optical illusion. This easy romper is suitable for adults and teens. It has a flounce that hides the tummy and the use of a bra becomes optional. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Pattern accommodates sizes 6 to 26

Recommended with this pattern

  • elastic depending on your waist measurements, from 23" to 53"
  • 1.5 yards, to 3 yards of fabric depending on the size
