If you’re craving a garment that’s the ultimate for summer comfort, sew the Kari romper. This romper has a trapeze silhouette that disguises as a dress in drapey fabrics. Shoulder ties add a playful detail and make for easy fitting—and yes, it has pockets!

Namesake: This pattern is named after one of our Seamwork ambassadors! Follow Kari on Instagram here.

Crosby is wearing a curvy size 14 Kari romper with 1/2" added to the torso, 1 1/2" added to the bust and hip, 1/2" taken from the waist, and 1/2" added to the dart length. Her measurements are 43 1/2", 34", 47", and she is 5'10".
