Butterick 6330- Rompers from the Lifestyle Wardrobe set

Butterick 6330 is a Lifestyle Wardrobe pattern set which includes patterns for a romper, jumpsuit, dress, maxi dress and jacket. It is labeled as easy. The rompers are described as a pull-on romper fitted through the bust with a blouson bodice, elasticized waist and back neck slit with a button and thread loop. It doesn’t include directions on how to make a thread loop but I learned by watching a video by Erika Bunker on how to make a thread chain loop https://youtu.be/8Sre9PWGTMk

I made the rompers using View D in size Medium. The only modification that I made was that I shortened the length of the shorts. View D includes pleats in the front and side front pockets.

Recommended fabrics are light to medium weight moderate stretch knit fabrics such as jersey and french terry. I used a DTY knit to make the romper but I think jersey would have been a better choice.

I think this is a great pattern since it includes so many choices. The romper fit really well. I can see that it will make a great jumpsuit as well. I like the side front pockets. The pleats in the front of the pants are a nice little touch. I like the options to make this as a dress or maxi dress. The dress is a pullover dress which has side seam pockets rather than side front pockets. The maxi dress can be cut on crosswise grain so that you can use fabric with border prints. All options for the romper, jumpsuit and dresses are sleeveless. The jacket that comes with this pattern is described as a semi fitted, unlined jacket with a self lined front, side front seams and optional topstitching. Recommended fabrics for the jacket is jersey, french terry and scuba knit.

I can see myself using this pattern for when I have knit fabric and want to make something quick and easy for the summer.

Happy Sewing!
