Eyelet Lace Bloomers

Enid, Oklahoma, ...






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.

    I applaud you for the gumption to trace the pattern off your screen! I have been in the same situation. It is sooo tedious!

    This little bloomers are too sweet, I live in a very windy college town where wearing a dress is near impossible for several hours a day…I’ve been thinking of making some really baggy bloomers so the lace just looks like an extension, but I wouldn’t be bearing my all when a breeze sweeps through. I’ve had the same problem with only finding ones cinched at the bottom.. I may have to try your solution!

    Sooo….. cute and a perfect solution for a “Dress up girl”! Your sewing looks perfect too!

    You probably already know about YouCanMakeThis.com, but they have a lot of beautiful e-patterns on their site for little one’s that might be useful to you.

    Also, I had to laugh when I read that you traced the pattern from your computer screen because I recently had to do the same thing and thought I was the only one who would do that. LOL
