Beautiful feminine bloomers for my 4 year old.
She has a lot of trouble keeping her dress tail down, so when I found 2 scraps of eyelet lace bordered fabric, I KNEW what they were going to become. I hunted high and low for a suitable bloomer pattern. But they ALL had gathered or elastic bottoms which defeats the use of the beautiful fabric. I almost gave up. But then, while hunting for a good top pattern, I found Sophia. And I looked at the bloomers. And I looked at the completed projects from other users. And I saw the black bloomers with lace border. And that was that.
The longest hardest part of the project was tracing the pattern from my laptop screen because my printer is out of ink! The actual cutting & sewing only took about 45 minutes.
I eliminated the bottom hem and elastic, and also added an inch or so to the length. Between these 2 modifications it made them hit right at her knees, which for true modesty is ideal. I am 110% happy with these.
