Charlie Romper by My Childhood Treasures

I’m Gloria June, along with my new grandson Elliot, with a review of the Charlie Romper by My Childhood Treasures.

It’s Whaley Cute!

Elliot’s mother chose this pattern before it came up for review!  We had already purchased some fabrics from our local quilt shop.  She decided that Whale Watching by Fabric Finders was perfect for this romper.  (the hot pink & turquoise colorway would be perfect for a little girl’s romper!)  I also have a ridiculous amount of KAM Snaps -- ordered just before he was born.  

This pattern was easy to follow and flowed nicely. Steps are numbered and photos with comments are included.  

The seams are finished properly.  Pockets are optional, and an applique pocket for the front of the romper is included. Instructions to fasten with buttons, snaps or velcro are explained individually so you will not have to guess what to do for your choice.  I will make this pattern many times over.  In fact, it was true to the measurements provided -- which means I can safely make this as gifts too!

I added a minky whale to the front (just eyeballed the size and shape, drew it on heat-n-bond lite, cut, iron, stitch).  His hands are curious now, so the texture may be something of interest to him.  While we couldn’t get motionless photos of Elliot, I hope you can see how precious this romper is!  AND, if you have any photo-taking advice for a wiggly 3 month old, please comment & help a fellow #sewsister out.  

Happy Sewing,

Gloria June
