A Spoonful of Sugar Nightwear

I don’t buy much lingerie. Almost never. And I’m not into the really lacey stuff. But often I will see a cute night cami at the thrift store that I want to buy.

Unfortunately, they NEVER come with bottoms. I still to this day don’t know why. When I have bought lingerie in the past it usually came in two pieces not just a top. Or at least you had an option to buy the bottoms if they were separate. At the thrift store they do sell bottoms but they never have any matches.

Not a problem! Colette Patterns offers a FREE bloomer pattern An extra 1/2 yard or so of solid colored fabric, some elastic plus free time = a new cute pair of bloomers to match your $1 thrift store cami from Victoria’s Secret.

Once you have the pattern cut, each bloomer takes about 45 minutes to make. But, it would have gone a lot faster if I had used a wide elastic for the waist rather than two smaller ones that I threaded through a casing.

I think they are the cutest! And totally cheap to make. You could churn out a few in one afternoon! The camis featured above were originally from Forever 21, Victoria’s Secret and American Eagle.
