Sewing Project: Bloomers

My recent sewing project was making bloomers for my three-year-old active girl.  So, what exactly are bloomers?  They are basically shorts worn under skirts or dresses for modesty.   After seeing my daughter jumping, twirling, and swinging her legs in all sorts of directions while wearing a dress, I knew a pair of bloomers would help keep her pantie covered.  We are actively teaching her to behave in a ladylike fashion but while she is still learning, a pair of bloomers helps.

I used McCall’s M4505 view F for the below bloomers:

    I suppose that means my lovely wife ignored my suggestion of sewing fishing weights into the hem of our daughter’s dresses.

    We’ve used bloomers for years, too. We’ve used the ones that come with other dresses.

    I keep meaning to make some . . . just haven’t gotten around to it, yet. 80)

    Oh how I wish I had thought about making “bloomers” when our daughter was younger. I kept using the panties “covers” (as we called them) that came with other dresses until she outgrew them. And bloomers are just so darned cute and old fashioned. I love them, Lois. I’m going to have to remember this for baby #3. Thanks.

    These are so cute! I am going to have to make some too. My girls have the same problem, but I had not thought of bloomers. Thanks for the idea!

    Very sweet Lois. I need to make some of these.

    I also love the nursing cover up. Thank you! I use it all the time. : )
