Things are starting to get strange over here! If you don’t know what Stranger Things is by now… well don’t feel too bad because I didn’t either until a few weeks ago. My oldest son is obsessed and he has been begging me to watch! Part of what finally made me break down and give it a go was when one of my pattern testers commented how the romper option from the Lola Wardrobe Builder (which released yesterday BTW!) would make the perfect Elle (Eleven) romper. I am a sucker for a good romper and even more for a fun abstract print. When I saw this Stranger Things inspired print from Paris Bebe Fabrics- I knew it had to happen.
Elle’s romper has a cross front and a collar so I had to make a few adjustments to the bodice- which included a little drafting for the collar piece but nothing too scary!
I used about a yard of this Stranger Things print for my size 3 romper. You will also need some poster board or paper for pattern making, a straight edge ruler, a pencil, and some scissors. Plus all the general sewing notions!
How perfect did this little romper turn out? My daughter is way too young for Stranger Things but that didn’t keep her from getting excited over her cute new outfit! We paired ours with a pair of white sneakers and some fun sunglasses. Now go grab your copy of the Lola Wardrobe Builder and the Dax Wardrobe Builder (for the dudes in your life) and go get strange!
