Figgy’s Romper Revamp Class with Craftsy!

 

I had the total pleasure of reviewing two awesome things over the last couple of weeks, Craftsy’s online Romper Revamp class and Figgy’s Patterns Zephyr Pattern.

The Zephyr Pattern is a romper pattern from Shelly Figeroa of Figgy’s Patterns.  The pattern also offers the option of making it as a sundress.  Either way, it is adorable!  Shelly has recently filmed an online class with Craftsy that walks you step by step through the process of making the romper version of the pattern.  Both the pattern and the class are amazing!

I have never taken an online sewing class before, so I have nothing to compare Romper Revamp to, but as someone who learns best visually I can tell you this this class is so helpful in the making of this pattern.  As they come, Figgy’s patterns are very well written and easy to follow.  I feel much better if I can actually see someone carrying out the instructions though, and that is just what you get when you take this class.  Plus, there are a host of other great features:

  • Stop and start the video whenever you need to.
  • The class is broken down into several lessons and then further into lesson topics, so it’s easy to find your place or go back to another lesson or topic.
  • You can take notes right there during the video, in a little box under the embedded video.  When you stop to take a note the video automatically pauses.
  • 30 second repeat.
  • There’s an extremely helpful online platform where you can ask Shelly questions or leave comments.  She checks it often and will reply, helping in any way that she can.
  • Once you buy the class you can access it any time, as many times as you want… FOREVER!!!

Figgy’s Romper Revamp is loaded with helpful sewing tips as well… brilliant ones!  Have you ever used a bobby pin to turn out a spaghetti strap.  Shelly shares how to do this, and I swear that my life is changed forever!

The best part about this whole thing is that Craftsy is offering my readers a 50% discount on the Romper Revamp class, making it $20!!  This is an amazing deal, everyone.  Here’s what’s included:

Even if you are not quite ready to try this pattern (try the sundress if you’re nervous about the shorts), it’s totally worth buying now for $20!!!

So, do you want to see how my Zephyr Pattern turned out?

Abby picked out these knit fabrics (which I love!).  The colors are so much fun!  If you compare Figgy’s image of the romper at the top of the post you’ll see that I have reversed the top so that the split neck opening is in the back.  I wish I could say that I was trying to be fancy there, but in reality I needed to cover up some unintended wrinkles at the yoke edge and those little applique hearts seemed to be perfect.  So I turned it around where you could see those sweet little hearts in front.  What do you think?

    I love this! And I actually think the romper looks cool backwards, I first thought you did it on purpose :). I love the fabrics you used to, and she looks so cute in it! I mentioned the spaghetti strap tip in my review too, haha – I’m so glad she shared it!

    • Jenny Yarbrough says:

      Oh my goodness, that tip saved me so much grief, and will for years to come. :) I can’t wait to see how your romper turned out, Abby! Have a great weekend.

    • Jenny Yarbrough says:

      Thanks, Shelly! LOL, you know what a fiasco it was for me, but I really love it. More importantly, Abby loves it! Thanks so much for including little ole’ me!

  5. JoBeth says:

    Shelly, I wish this romper pattern came in a size 10-14; my girls would love it.

    • Jenny Yarbrough says:

      What size do you need specifically? Shelly does a great chapter on pattern measurements and how to adapt your pattern. I had to adapt for my very lanky daughter and it turned out perfect!

      • JoBeth says:

        I have one daughter in size 10 and one in size 12.
