Litote: understatement, for intensification, by denying the contrary of the thing being affirmed.
These were so fun and easy to make. They are my first pair of bottoms that are in pant form, and yes, it’s the downloadable mini bloomer pattern from Colette patterns. They make the most adorable pajama bottoms, no? Cream and black are so classy together.
I used flannel-backed satin, with just a little but of ribbon for the bows. Insstead of threading ribbon through the legs as in the instructions, I just put another bit of elastic in each leg and just sewed a bow on. Much easier. They’re fully finished hems, and I’m wearing them all over the house.
They’re on my blog too
