Hacking Willa's Wrap Pants into a Romper!

Hey everyone! Willa’s Wrap Pants released today! They are amazing as-is and we thought you would also really enjoy this fun romper hack for the women’s pattern!



First, you need to measure yourself to know how much to add to the rise. Measure from the small of your between your legs and up to mid chest. This measurement is what you need the rise to be at for this hack. Let’s say this measurement is 33” for the example

Now look at the list below for the rise length included in the pattern already. Subtract that number from the rise amount needed to know how much you need to add. Now divide that by 2 since there is a front and a back. Add that amount to the top of the pattern piece.



Size
Rise
XXS
18.5”
XS
19.25”
S
20.5”
M
22.25”
L
23.5”
XL
25”
2X
27”
3X
28.5”



So for this example, the first measurement is 33” and let’s say the model is an XL:

33-25 =8
 8 divided by 2 is 4, so I would add 4” to the top of the pattern piece.

Then I cut my pattern and sewed it exactly as the pattern states.

That's it!  So super easy!


Now check out the fun video below for a few different ways to tie it as a romper, sleeveless dress, or skirt!






So easy and stylish, right?  We can't wait to see your Willa's rompers!
