You know my love for all things pertaining to PJ’s, don’t you? I even shot a Youtube video dedicated to winter PJ’s!

This time, I sewed a night romper for hot summer days, the Day Dreamer* by Pattern Niche. Such a quick sew!

That’s a pattern full of options.

As a dress:

  • mini-length
  • knee- length
  • straight hem
  • curved hem with slits

As a romper:

  • short
  • capri
  • long


  • crew
  • scoop
  • V


  • sleeveless
  • short
  • 3/4
  • longues


  • side pocket(s)

I chose the short romper with the V neckline and sleeveless.

A summer romper

The fabric is from the mega mystery bundle from The Fabric Baron. If you want to know more about their mystery bundles, I shot a video about them.

The print reminds of some sherbet and paired well with the project. This knit is really stretchy (on a white background) and so soft.

I cut a size for the bust blended to 6 at waist and hips. I could have graded to a 8 for more ease. 

I got lost in the instructions a bit, probably because there are so many options! Otherwise, it went rather quickly with only 4 main pieces and bands.

My only problem was with the top upper center back, where fabric is pooling. Next time, I’ll narrow this part (I have a narrow upper back so no big deal, I’m used to doing this modification). I’ll also lower the shoulder slope.

I might add some length to the bottom part because it’s a tad too short for me!

I like the front, closed by either snaps or buttons. I wore it over our 3-day extreme heat wave (with no A/C) and it was perfect. My plan is to sew one or two new rompers, but I need to find knits as softs as the one I used!
