Flutter sleeve Romper - sewing tutorial & FREE pattern (PART-2)

Hello everyone,
This post is a continuation of my previous post (i.e. PART-1) where I have explained how to make a paper pattern  and cutting of Girl's Romper with Flutter Sleeve for a 2 year old.

In this post (i.e. PART-2), I have shown how to stitch the Girl's Romper.
Start by making the Flutter sleeves.
Stitching of Romper Flutter Sleeve & Top:-

  • Keep 2 pieces of sleeve right side facing each other and stitch outer curve at 1 cm. Then trim the seam at 0.5 cm and give slits on curve at a distance of 2 cms. (* when giving slits on curve don't cut on the stitch line).

  • Then turn the sleeves inside out and iron on the stitched curve. To hold the stitch curve, you can do an edge machining or any design stitch on outer curve of sleeves.
  • Do gather stitching on inner side of sleeve curves as shown and pull the stitches gradually to form gathers.

  • Attach button stand bands on both sides of Centre back as shown in above image.
  • Cut these button stands on straight grain of fabric.
  • Later, on Left side we will stitch the buttons & on right side we will make the button holes.

  • Place Front, Back and both Flutter sleeves flat open as shown above.
  • Stitch one side of sleeve to back arm curve and other side to front arm curve at 1 cm.
  • These stitch lines will be on inner side / wrong side of garment.

  • Once the sleeves are attached to Front & back, finish the arm curves by stitching bais band (3 cm width) at 1 cm over the stitched sleeves as shown above.

    • In above image I have shown a more magnified view of bais band attachment in 2 STEPS.
    • STEP-1 - shows bais band attached at 1 cm over the sleeve & arm curve.
    • STEP-2 - shows folding other open edge of bais band 1 cm in to do design stitch from one end to other of arm curve.
    • Finish all 4 arm curves in same way.

    • Once the arm curves are finished, stitch bais band (3 cms width) on neckline at 1 cm.
    • Fold the band 1 cm in at starting and ending of button stands as shown.

    • Once stitched at 1 cm, trim the seam to 0.5 cm & give slits at a distance of  2cms (slits will help in folding the band inside).
    • For neck piping, keep 0.5 cm on outer & inner side of neck & fold remaining 0.5 cm inside, iron well and do hemming / slip stitch.

    • Stitch both side seams of top at 1 cm. You can either do a plain seam or an overlock (optional).
    Once the Romper Top with Flutter sleeves is ready, stitch the Romper Trouser.

    Stitching of Romper Trouser:-

      • For stitching the romper trouser, place right side of back pieces facing right side of front pieces.
      • Stitch both inner legs at 1 cm and give notches on curve as shown.
      • Stitch both side seams of trouser at 1 cm.
      • Turn both legs inside out and iron the inner leg seam & side seam on right side.
      • Once the inner legs & side seams are stitched, then stitch the crotch of trouser.

      • Attach top round waist to trouser round waist & stitch around at 1 cm.
      • When attaching the round waist, keep right side of Top facing right side of Trouser.
      • *Side seams of Top & Trouser should face opposite directions on both sides. You can even flatten the side seams.

      • To insert cord / elastic, cut a bais band by measuring the stitched round waist & add 2 cms to it. Keep the ready width of bais band 0.5 cm extra than elastic band width. (For example; if elastic width if 1/2" then add 0.5 cm to 1/2").
      • Also add 1 cm on each side of bais band width for stitching.
      • *When attaching the bais waist band on right side of romper with edge machining, keep the romper waist seam facing the Romper Top.
      • Elastic length measurement will be Round waist - 6 cms.

      Romper with Flutter sleeves is almost ready. Just stitch some buttons & button holes at back button stand. You can put hook and eye  at top to hold both ends of neck piping.

      You can also embellish the front with some embroidery or buttons, though it's optional☺.
