Review: McCall's 6760- Romper Room
Jumpsuits seem to be as easy to wear as a dress. Basically the top and bottom are already matched. Just throw it on and you are good to go. With the exception of the occasional visit by "nature," rompers, the short version of the jumpsuit gives you just as much versatility as a dress. Wear it as a short set with flats or wedges or pair it with heels for a date. You can even pair it with a jacket and change the look altogether.
I find it hard sometimes to pair tops to bottoms, which might explain why I tend to enjoy dresses much more readily than any other ensemble. To remedy this conundrum I decided to make myself a "romper" from my days of youth. I chose McCalls 6760 jumpsuit view and shortened it to get the romper. There was an option to make it as a dress as well.
Wearing heels with shorts is not something I normally feel comfortable doing, but for some reason this romper actually "feels" like a dress, and thus, it just naturally goes better with heels for me this time. Maybe, its the dressy style of the bodice that does the trick.
- Made the inseam 3.5"
- 1.5" FBA
- Left off the pockets
- Tacked down the front and side overlaps
All-in-all this is a great pattern for me, because it has some shaping to it that I like at the waist, and still has the option to make it any length as a jumpsuit, romper or dress.
