“Love this pattern! I've made lots and it is easy to read, like all Sis Boom patterns.”

The bubble romper...easy on, easy off, and…reversible! We love our little baby bubble. Make them sleeveless, or with ruffle or puff sleeves. These bubbles are for babies on the go, and the moms that like a quick change (‘cause we all know getting out of the house alone can be time consuming)! Sweet vintage-style Sis Boom prints take this sporty, jetsetting concept to a whole new level! Sis Boom Baby has the gear for you!

Sizes: Preemie, Newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months

This turned out so cute! I made it reversible and the directions for that were very easy to understand. The pictures were clear and helpful.

I absolutely LOVED this pattern!!!! I made it out of a 100% white linen and I hand appliqued two bunnies on the front in a natural linen (to match the Pottery Barn Kids "Reagan" bedding that was being used in the nursery). The "only" suggestion I have is, I would have LOVED for it to have had a "boy" sleeve, just a plain non-gathered sleeve at the shoulder. The parent's didn't find out the gender until delivery, so I was trying to make it "gender neutral". Even with that tiny suggestion, I still give this 5 stars as it sewed up beautifully! The pattern and directions were excellent!!!

Really cute pattern. The first time I made the ruffle sleeves it was a little fiddly, but turned out super cute. Both ones I made have been gifts so I am not sure about the fit, but they looked about right.

A bit difficult to follow on your first one, maybe it's pretty easy after that!

Great pattern, i really enjoyed it. I found the instructions difficult to follow at first however was able to work it out with patience. The next rompers I make will be much easier second time round.

I have made the 3 month size for my new born however she is too long for it at 4 weeks old (the top is fine; 75th percentile for length). I plan on making the 3 month size again and extending the body.

ok this is SUPER CUTE!! in all its variations!! love how easy it is to customise and the reversible thing is awesome :D I LOVE my finished now to make MORE!! didn't love the they were actually quite confusing at and I just kind of made it up as I went, I'm not a beginner so I wouldn't recommend it as a first pattern! I also agree with some previous reviews about the material I made the 3 month size which 'requires' a yard, I bought half a yard and still have plenty of left
Once you've made it once though all these issues are in the past :) I'm off to make my second now :D As the first 'baby' pattern I've purchased, I'm pretty happy with it.

For a beginner who has never taken a sewing class this pattern was just what i needed to get started. The instructions were easy to follow but the pictures made the biggest difference. Sewing the legs and sides were confusing at first but once I got the hang of it everything came together perfectly. This pattern did not require many materials which is a plus. My daughter has been wearing these rompers since she was 8 months old. They are comfortable and easy to get on and off. I often get them monogrammed and have made several for friends. I will be making many more for my little one!

Another great pattern from Sis Boom! This reversible bubble romper is adorable and really is great for monogramming or appliqueing. I love the three different sleeve options to really change out the look of the romper. I had some difficulty with a few of the steps, so not sure I would recommend it for a new sewer. But, overall, an easy pattern to follow.

TWO thumbs up!! Made this first for my 4th daughter's coming-home-from-the-hospital outfit! It is my new baby shower go-to pattern! Great job!

by Muscarella, Michelle

Very cute! Easy to fallow directions. Sizing was a bit funny though. I made a 3 month and it was more like a 6... So I made the newborn size and it turned out about right. Also, the amount of fabric it said to buy for 1 outfit was enough to make 2 and a diaper bag... Would have been a waist if it was not really cute fabric.

All in all, I'd say buy it, but figure out how much fabric to buy before you go shopping!

I love the finished product.The instructions, not so much,they werent very clear on a couple of things.And the some of the pictures are computer generated so that made it confusing for me.Over all I would recommend this pattern, with a little patience you will make the the cutest bubble for your sweetie.

Well, this is a Carla C pattern - so you know it's gonna be good. The only bad thing I can say about this pattern is that my daughter is too big for it now. I loved it when my daughter was small enough for the sizes. I had tons of compliments when she wore it. Very easy to put together and the instructions are so clear.

by Whelan, Tricia

Great Pattern, love Carla's patterns as they are so easy to follow and you learn something new every time. Comes out really cute and totally reversible too.

I bought this pattern to make a few summer rompers for my new granddaughter. I just love the style and it sews up quickly. The sizing is perfect as well as the detailed instructions. Lots of pictures makes it easy to follow. I have been sewing for many years and I know it would be a nice simple project for beginners as well as advanced seamstresses. Love it!

I made two of these for a friend's newborn. The pattern was quick and easy. I made one that was sleeveless and one that had the little ruffled sleeves. They looked so different you'd hardly know they were from the same pattern!

by Sarah Brandt

Great pattern! I'm very much a novice, so the first romper took me a while, but each one after that flew together quickly. I love all the size options.

As a highly visual learner, this pattern was so easy for me to follow. I have struggled in the past with "traditional" patterns and had almost given up on sewing! This bubble romper came together easily, and the instructions and pictures truly explained the steps in an easy-to-understand manner. I can't wait to make more!
