Ottobre Romper - #6 from 2/2002

Ottobre 2/2002 #6 was the pattern for a new romper for the little guy.  This issue is in another language, Dutch I think?  It was pretty straight forward sewing and I dug out a Kwik Sew pattern so I could see how to handle the snap opening for the diaper.




The fabric came from The Fabric Fairy, using a gift certificate from my time on the Super Online Sewing Match.  I cannot find it on the site now, I guess it is sold out.

As you can see I really changed up the back, I used three snaps down the back.  This just helps to get the romper on.

I have made him a romper from Kwik Sew but it is so wide and oversized.  This style is a bit slimmer and it looks so much better one him.

I added 1" to the hem of this romper, oops, too much, looks like he is wearing capris.  I am going to wait until it has been washed and dried once.  Just in case it shrinks, it if doesn't I will cut off some of the length.




He is checking out the camera in this picture, such a serious look.  I had a label that says Road Patrol, thought it was appropriate for this transportation themed fabric.  I used a bit of the knit ribbing to back the label.  It sets it off from the fabric.


I just think it looks so cute on him, the fit is nice and it makes his eyes look so blue.  Here he is checking out the dog.  Little guy is just now starting to take notice of the dog.


Next up one more top for him, long sleeve for fall.  Then back to me, fall sewing here I come.

  1. He's adorable. The romper is so cute. I like the fit of Ottobre and Burda so much more than the Big 4.

  7. He is so adorable!! Wonderfully cute romper too. I still have so many of those LL labels. My boys grew up before I could use them all. Let me know if you're running short on boy labels and I'd be happy to send them to a good home. :-) dcook100 at gmail dot com.

  8. So cute! If you need to translate your Ottobre for future projects, it's not in Dutch, it's German.
