Ellie & Mac released a new pattern: the Summer Nights Romper and Two Piece Set*. I am very happy that I had the change to test this pattern! When I first saw the call for testers in the Ellie & Mac Facebook group, I doubted if this would be something I would wear, but when I later saw that they specificially looked for testers in my size, I decided I would go out of my comfort zone and apply.

In the first part of the test I was assigned the two piece set. I won’t show it here, because the fabrics I chose for both parts do not go together at all. Besides, the fit has changed, so it won’t give a good picture of the final pattern. For the final part of the test I decided to make the romper and I am really happy with how it turned out!

I am not used to wearing off-shoulder clothes. The only time I did was on my wedding. And I cannot even remember ever having worn a romper! That is why this sew was out of my comfort zone, but I am absolutely pleased with the result. It is both comfortable and stylish, and I am sure I will wear it. Next time, though, I will probably leave out the flounce and used a shorter elastic on the shoulders, so it can be worn on the shoulders as well. I like the versatility of this pattern.

The Summer Night Romper has many options: the romper option and the two part-option, short, 3/4, and long hemmed sleeves, as well as long cuffed bishop sleeves, a flounce, pockets, and drawstrings (for the romper). I made a romper with 3/4 sleeves, the flounce, pockets, and drawstring. The pattern is suitable for knits with a good drape. I chose a viscose jersey in baroque style.

This was my first pattern test for Ellie & Mac. I am really happy that I got the opportunity to test for this company. My experience is that the pattern was tested thorougly and that the designer, Lindsey Essary, makes sure the pattern really works! The pattern was originally designed for wovens, but that didn’t give the expected results, so it was changed to be suitable for knits. It takes courage and flexibility to make such major changes to a pattern, but increases its quality. I like that!

If you like the pattern, you can buy it here: *

Ellie & Mac* have a huge sale going on right now (everything -60%), so also this pattern is only $3.98 on the moment I am writing this post.
