New Sewing Pattern from The Cottage Mama: Run Around Romper for Boys and Girls

It’s finally time to start sharing my new set of printed sewing patterns!  It is really hard to keep anything from you all.  I wanted to share these pictures the second I received them!

It was also really hard to decide which design to share first, but I decided to start with the ‘Run Around Romper‘ since this pattern is for boys and girls!

 Run Around Romper
Size 6 Month through 6 Years

The Run Around Romper is the perfect one-piece outfit for your little guy or gal with three different design variations that can be made as pants or shorts. View A, the interweaving stripes variation, is a one-piece pants outfit that buttons at the shoulder, has a unique interweaving stripe pattern and side button tabs. View B is the shorts variation that buttons at the shoulder and has optional side button tabs. View C, the ruffle pants variation for little girls, also buttons at the shoulder, has side button tabs and has an adorable small ruffle at the bottom of the pants.

All design variations are fully lined with contrasting fabric for total comfort for your little one. View A and B can be made as pants or shorts. All variations can be made with the interweaving stripes and require two buttonholes. This is great pattern for confident beginner sewers and offers many ways to get creative with your design!

We had two little guys join us for the photo shoot whose mama’s were fans of The Cottage Mama Facebook page.  It was so fun to get to meet these mama’s in person and get to have their little guys model this new pattern.  They are SO adorable and totally sweet.

All of the fabrics pictured above were sent over from Birch Fabrics.  They are 100% organic cotton and were just lovely to work with.  These four garments (plus one more) will be on display at their booth for International Quilt Market coming up in a couple weeks.

View C – Girly Ruffle Pants Variation.

The Run Around Romper is a perfect Spring and Summer garment, but is equally as cute layered with a long sleeved tee and open sweater or sweatshirt for the Fall and Winter.  Generous length has been give so the pants can be cuffed to expose the contrasting lining fabric.
I hired Amy Tripple Photography for the photo shoot and I absolutely loved working with her.  I love taking my own pictures, but sometimes it’s just nice to put it in the hands of a true professional.  We have a few more projects in the works and I’m so happy to be working with her.
All The Cottage Mama sewing patterns are professionally printed paper patterns (not a PDF) published by The Cottage Mama, Inc.. Patterns include a color front and back cover, full-sized pattern pieces as well as detailed step-by-step instructions with photographs.
The Run Around Romper is now available for pre-order in the shop and should arrive from the printer in 1-2 weeks and will ship upon arrival.

I hope you love this pattern as much as I loved creating it ~ there are so many fun design variations. 
Can’t wait to share the other two patterns with you!

  1. Oh, these are so cute and the fabric is to die for. Very excited to get my hands on this so I can sew one up for my nephew on the way.

  2. OH my. They are so cute!! Both the kids and the clothes! I’m in love
    with the little boys blue whale ones. The contrast fabric, rolled cuffs,
    oh my oh my….You do know how to capture a grammies heart! Its a must
    have pattern.

  3. Totally adorable! almost wish my kiddos were still small enough for that! Almost! I will just make it for someone who wants one but doesn’t sew:)

  4. I love the romper! I need one of these!

  5. Oh my goodness! That is the romper/coverall style I made my boys 44 years ago. Newly married, with little money and teaching myself to sew, I chose this pattern and used it for both boys plus many gifts. View C is wonderful with the ruffles and your use of color/fabric in A is very cool. Brings back so many memories!!! Am so happy to see this coming back……wishing you the best….you are so creative! Hugs, Doreen

  6. Super cute love the style!!

  7. I love the details on this romper. Super cute Lindsay. And that photo of all the kids together? Fantastic! Good luck with this new pattern! I love that they are paper.

  8. Just adorable Lindsay. LOVE the little Romper, especially with those ruffles at the bottom on the girls version. Too cute.

  9. Super cute! Is there a crotch snap option at all for the little guys? I assume not, but I thought it couldn’t hurt to ask! 🙂
