I have already made 6 of these since I got the pattern a couple of weeks ago! The pattern is easy to follow and sews up fast! I love it for my almost 2 year old! She can almost pull it up and put her arms in herself! Great pattern!

I love all the different choices for this romper and have tried all the different combinations already. It is super easy to pull through the neck, and well designed in that way. I love how the cuffs are done on the neck and arms for tank. The only drawback of this pattern (and it's very minor) is that the front and back are the same. Makes for quick cutting, but I do notice when my son sits down in his romper, his butt pulls the fabric backwards, making the neck hole look higher up in the front than the back, giving the appearance that it's on backwards. This isn't really a big deal though, and I suppose could be fixed by making the front lower than the back to begin with (I just haven't done that because I didn't want to have to adjust the neck binding and mess that up). All in all, I love the pattern, it's so slim fitting yet cozy and spacious as well, and I have already used it several times. I would highly recommend purchasing it for boys and girls alike.

I love this pattern! My son wears a helmet, and hates to get dressed. I love that I can simply put him in this and not have to take his helmet off or put anything over his head!

This pattern is super easy and quick to sew up AND it's super easy to put it on. My 1-year-old is a squirmy worm and I hate dealing with snaps. This slips right on him very easily and quickly. For diaper changes it is hardly more work that pulling down a pair of pants. I cloth diaper but use disposables at night and his RTW size fits perfectly with both the cloth and disposable diapers. One of the best parts is that the front and back are the same so you can never accidentally put it on backwards :)

This pattern is very well written and has easy to follow instructions. Very quick sew as well. Just wish there was instructions for crotch snaps for babies. Would make diaper changes a while lot easier

Oh my Giddy Aunt - I LOVE this pattern! I actually bought the pattern originally to make a present for a friend, but my son saw the cover photo and wanted a romper for himself. He now refuses to wear anything else, and I've made him several rompers already! They are great for him as he can get himself dressed (which is a big deal here!) and what great and comfy outfit. As the winter comes, we'll just layer a t-shirt underneath, and away we go!
I've tried several other romper/overall patterns from other designers in the past, and the L'il Rascal Romper is BY FAR the nicest fit, in my opinion. Not too slouchy in the crotch, the legs are a great fit, and its so nice to not have to deal with snaps. I have been highly recommending this pattern to others and will continue to do so!

The directions are clear, the pattern runs true to RTW sizing, it is super quick to sew, and it's adorable on! I made the neckline slightly smaller on mine (raised the back a bit), and it still went on and off my 8 month old pretty easily (using a good cotton lycra for everything).

I absolutely love this romper pattern. I've been looking for one both my boys and girls could wear and this is it. They live that there are no closures to mess around with. My 2 year old loves them so much that he picks out t-shirts at the thrift store to be up cycled and then as soon as it's ready to try it on he says no he's leaving it on and then quickly asks for the again the next day. Fast, simple and comfy is all I can ask for.

This was such a quick easy pattern to sew up and it looks so cute! It's easy to slide on and off even without snaps and the kids love how comfy it is!

This is the first pattern I've ever purchased and made the day it released. I've made the tank option and the dolman sleeve option and both are so quick and easy and absolutely adorable! Directions were clear and easy to follow.
