The fabric is leftover from shirts I made for my husband and son. It is actually white with wide blue borders in wave shape, but I only have most of the blue part left for my bloomers.
I use Jane pattern and lengthened the legs about 4 cm. The legs of the shorts are on fabric selvedges, so they didn’t have to be hemmed. Then I stitched two rows of elastic shirrings on both legs, turning the shorts into a cute bloomers! The fabric is cotton and very comfortable. I think the bloomers is perfect for these hot summer days and I can also wear them under my short dresses.
