Simplicity 8124 - Cynthia Rowley Off-the-Shoulder Romper
by Erica Bunker Follow

Pattern Description: 
Cynthia Rowley off-the-shoulder style romper with elastic waist and sleeves.

Pattern Sizing:
XS-XL. I cut the medium.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are beginner friendly.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The only thing that I don't particularly like is the neckline. I've made enough of these to now know that I prefer the casing to be a separate sewn on piece, instead of simply folding the neckline over. I feel that it affects the way the elastic lays. Mine rolled, even with no-roll elastic. I felt I had keep adjust and readjusting. 

Fabric Used:
My fabric is rayon challis from Joanns. I can't find it on the site. But in my store it was mixed in wit the spring fabrics near the Nicole Miller. I haven't worked with challis in a while. It's really easy to sew and press. But it wrinkles as bad as linen! As fast as a sat in my car and buckled my seat belt, it was a wrap. So it is, what it is.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. This was perfect right out of the envelope.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew this again! It's great for my summer wardrobe.
