Linville Romper and Dress

Monday, July 25, 2016

Adrianna of Hey June just released a new juniors pattern that is as multifaceted as it is cute!! The Linville Romper and Dress options include cap sleeves or sleeveless tops, a short skirt, maxi skirt, shorts, or pants.

Avery is at the bottom of the size range, so I love collecting these juniors Hey June patterns for sewing into the teen years. I ended up sewing Avery the size 6 in width, but lengthened both the bodice and the skirt. I love that Adrianna includes lengthen and shorten locations on the pattern pieces. 

I have a bunch of this mysterious green trim from my grandmother's stash. I don't think I could have found anything more perfect in a store. I love how the green picks up the green flecks in the bodice fabric. 

The bodice fabric is part of the Wee Wander collection from Sarah Jane Studio. The skirt fabric is Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Malibu.

The simple back button and loop closure is the perfect location for a special vintage button. The exaggerated opening is particularly helpful when slipping on the romper version.

I am still extremely challenged when it comes to photographing white. Any tips are welcome!!

The fit of this dress is what makes it special. It really is perfect! Avery has already requested a pants romper version. She'll be getting plenty of wear out of this in the meantime!
