I LOVE this romper! I have already made 2 dresses for my daughter. I guess I need some help.  Huh

What size dress is the one that you made for your daughter (who is absolutely gorgeous by the way, she looks like a little Drew Barrymore!)? I tried searching for the pattern online to see if I could buy it maybe off eBay but no luck. Did the pattern include other sizes and if so, would you be willing to post or PM me the measurements? I need to have this dress for my daughter, but I think I have wasted enough material.

Any help would be great. Or has anyone figured out the ratios for other sizes?

Thanks!

livvyloo, the dress was a size 3T.  My DD is generally a smallish size 4T, so I just cut all the outside lines a little wider than normal.  The pattern did not include any other sizes.

Where are your dresses going wrong?  Where is it fitting wonky or not fitting at all?  Can you post or PM a picture of what the problem(s) are?  I'm far from a pro seamstress, but I'm sure I and/or we can help you figure it out, and then I can go back and tweak the  (obviously not terribly helpful) tute so that it will be a little more workable for others, as well.

What size is your daughter?  If you post or send her measurements (chest and length from base of neck to ? wherever you would want the dress to fall) I'll try to figure it out.

If that doesn't work for us, I will try to figure something else out. I haven't ever worked with PDF before, but maybe something along those lines that could be enlarged and printed would work.  I dunno.  But we'll figure it out.  (I could also just cut out the pattern from newspaper if nothing else works and mail it to you.  Or wait, my husband is the king of photoshop, and maybe something there will work that could be printed out on 4 or 6 sheets of printer paper and be taped together.  We WILL make this work!!!)

We're having company overnight, so be patient with me if I am unable to get back to you right away.

I love this dress! I wanna make some for my little cousins..but I have a question. I'm curious about the back; are the flaps big enough to cover everything if they sit down or bend over to pick something up? Basically..does everything stay covered? lol

I hope I'm not being too much of a pest, but do you by chance have any additional measurements from the pattern??

I think that I will need to make it a bit bigger once I get it drawn to fit my dd, but I just can't get it drawn  Cheesy.  Of course this is my first attempt at drawing a pattern in this way. 

Thank you so much, I love the look of this and SO want to make several for my little one.

Thanks again

Ok, I just attempted this ADORABLE dress but when my little one moves around, the back is way too open.  Not sure if I need to adjust the pattern to have a larger skirt base to take care of this or move over where the arm holes are....help!  I LOVE the dress and it was super easy (I haven't put the buttons on yet).  I just want to tweek it to get it so she can wear it without showing her panties to the world....any other suggestions?  I made the dress a 4T and maybe I didn't make ALL the pieces alittle bigger and that is what is throwing things off....I'm new at this sewing thing :-)

Any suggestions would be a huge help!  Thanks for posting this pattern and tute!

The pattern I had like this had bloomers (shorts with elastic at the bottoms of the legs).  I think it's more designed to be a shirt than a dress (at least the one I made).  The last time I made it, I paired it with plain shorts.  If you make the shorts in the same fabric, it shouldn't be too obvious.   

You could also extend  the lower side edges a bit, and maybe put a small snap around waist/hip height to help hold it closed.
