Here’s just a quick pic of some adorable mini-bloomers (the Colette ones. I swear, I’ll move on to a new pattern designer eventually…) I made these as a sample for the shop where I’m working. Aren’t they they cutest things you’ve ever seen?
It’s hard to see, but the fabric is a lovely cotton, all soft and smooth. It’s pink with little white dots! I cut a size 18, although when I measured the little 4×4” test swatch, it was a little off – about .25” to the small side. The 4×4 inch square was more like 3.75 x 3.75”. I tried these on and I can attest to the extreme cuteness of these bloomers – especially in the rearview mirror!
That being said, these are destined to be a store sample, not snug bug sleepwear. The pattern is drafted lower than I like – hitting on the bottom of my hipbones. For lounging, I’ll be more comfy with the waistband hitting me closer to my belly button. Also, the size 18 measurements are a bit snug on me, so I’ll add a few inches of ease for my next version.
