The Riviera Romper is an Advanced Beginner Pattern designed for ease and comfort. This is summer loungewear that is also appropriate for date night! Watch out, this may just become your favorite outfit EVER!!! I designed this pattern for women on the go who need some style in their wardrobe without the fuss. You won't have to worry about tops rising up, bottoms falling down, or even finding a matching outfit ever again.
Fit (Size XXS-XXXL):
The goal of this set is comfort and style - that is why it is designed for light knits and woven fabrics with a good amount of drape. You can play with the contrasting strap adding in lace, sequins, leather, etc; and you can make the whole Romper in one fabric or mix and match fabrics for endless possibilities! The shorts have loose straight cut and small leg slit, while the capris give you a wide range of finishing options for different looks. The elastic waist should fit at your high hip (not your natural waist). The Top is designed with ease through the waist and a beautiful dropped back with tie closure - this is designed to cover your bra, but all women are built differently so make sure to do a quick muslin to check the fit on your exact body. If you are between sizes, please size DOWN. If you have questions about sizing, feel free to contact me at Suzannewinterphotography [!at] gmail.com or on my Facebook Page

Lovely pattern, I should have sized down, but it is comfy a little big.

This pattern is absolutely gorgeous. It is easy to make and so flattering. The instructions are clear and well written. I've made the cap sleeve version with capri length trousers in a black lightweight viscose jersey, I love how it came out. I also love that the sizing is generous and perfect also for plus size ladies!
