The most adorable bloomers! Perfect for sleep wear.
Every year my family does a New Year's good luck panty exchange and this year my recipient was a young lady who is totally retro/vintage in everything she wears. What better piece of underclothes than bloomers for her??? I used some awesome fabric I pillaged from my grandmothers 30 year old fabric stash, and all other supplies are from my stash. I'm a totally green gifter this year! Sized from XS to XL there is a huge range of possibilities in this project.

    I chose not to pin my pattern as I plan to use this one over and over and over so I just traced it on the wrong side of my fabric with a pencil.

    Step 4

    Follow the instructions in the pattern to assemble and embellish. I was short on time so I skipped the ribbon on the legs and button holes and simply strung elastic thru all openings. To measure I stretched elastic the width of the casing and then doubled.

    The finished product turned out so darn cute I had trouble boxing them up and gifting them. I'm going to be making myself a few pairs out of old sheets and lace I have in my stash, Ill update with modeling pix as soon as I find a model who isn't camera shy. Feel free to add lace and ribbons as you see fit, I figured that the pattern made the piece here so I just added a ribbon so the recipient would know which side was front.
