Romper Pattern / Classic Baby Pattern / Smocking / Heirloom / Baby Romper / Snaps at the crotch / Belt / Vintage Style / by Grace Knott


The Original Romper Pattern from Grace Knott. -- New unused pattern.

One of the oldest designs for rompers around and still delightful. . Hand gathering is recommended.

This romper has two smocked panels either side of center front. It was designed for boys with straight short sleeves, a banded leg and a Peter Pan collar. It has a belt but it is optional.

Since hand pleating is recommended I have added a sheet of Knott's smocking dots to the pattern.

The pattern is out of print and the Grace Knott company is out of business. When these patterns are gone there won't be any more.

Sizes 6 - 18 months.

Shipping from United States

I ship within 1-2 business days using USPS 1st class shipping whenever possible.
When I find that the shipping charged was higher than necessary I will refund the overage.

Shipping for Pleater Needles US customers
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.00 for up to 80 pleater needles shipped in 1 package within the United States.
Shipping for Pleater Needles International customers
I am happy to ship Internationally but must calculate the shipping. Please request a custom order so I can add the appropriate postage for your country.
