Burda 9424 Dinosaur Romper Sewing Project

Burda 9424 Dinosaur Romper Sewing Project

This is a fabulous children's romper sewing pattern form Burda.  

I typically sew the bib lining from some co-coordinating scrap fabric but this time I really wanted to stretch my two fat quarters into a T2 sized romper for Little Pickle.  I had just enough patterned fabric for the pants as long as I added the cuff in contrasting fabric - I usually do it in the same fabric as I prefer it that way but actually, having made this one contrasting I think it's definitely growing on me. 

Tools and Materials:

Most of my sewing stash comes form the lovely people at Minerva Crafts.



I had just enough dinosaur fabric leftover to add a little bit of applique to the pocket.


The pattern includes several pocket options.   I always use the one with the straight edges - so much easier to fold the edges under.  One of these days I really must master rounded patch pockets - just not today.


I skipped marking the pocket's positioning and just did it by eye.  Naughty of me I know but honestly - can you actually tell?


The pattern calls for a button closure on either side of the romper.  I'm skipping this step.  The closure always seems to snag in an unsightly way when wearing.  Plus I never, ever actually need to undo it.


Apart from that I followed the pattern for the rest of the construction.


I don't think the pattern calls for top stitching on the straps but it gives it a much neater finish.  


I love how the bib and lining come together.


I did neglect to sew the front and back bibs and linings together at the sides as i'm not using the button closure, but I managed to sew it together neatly in the end.


The cuffs were super easy to sew in place.


I'm working on sewing my button holes neater.


I remembered to sew the elastic on the inside,unlike the last time I made this pattern.

Little Pickle hasn't quite grown into this outfit yet but I can't wait to see him wearing it.
