Cali Faye Collection – Testing
Hello everyone, today I wanted to share my experience with Cali Faye Collection. As a member of Sewing Portfolio, I answered the call that was posted in the Facebook Group (This is a closed group and can only be accepted if you are a member of Sewing Portfolio). I was very excited to be selected to test the Fenix Romper pattern. By now you all may know, I am not a fan of jumpers/rompers. I have no problem, seeing someone else in their romper, it just wasn’t for me. But the look and feel of this design was surprisingly good. It has a super relaxed anthropologie feel to it.
The Fenix Romper has a front and back V neck and an asymmetrical hem line and not to mention inseam pockets. The tutorial comes with a guide that walks you through two shoulder strap options. The sizes available are 00-16, one thing I really like about this pattern is that the fabric suggestions is broad, you’re not just limited to cotton or woven and I like that. You can use just about any fabric with drape and it has a lot to do with design. My first Fenix was with a jersey, the second was a cotton and my final version is a Rayon Crepe Floral. This design has enough fullness without making you look overburden, I am now addicticted to the comfort and easy of movement this romper provides.
The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I liked how the pattern was drafted, where everything fall together so nicely. I didn’t have any fit issues, that may have a bit to do with my fabric choice. Rayon Crepe, seems to be the perfect fabric for this design. This romper is such a quick sew, it could be worn to the beach as a cover-up, walks with the kids, or even to the market. Also if made with special occasions fabric this would be a great in the nick of time piece.
What a fabulous design for the spring!
