my collete madeline mini bloomers! and how wonderful they are. i love them, regardless of how small they are on me…(and no this has nothing to do with my backside being too big…)

anywho these were fun to make. altho i did come across one issue….the hem!
did anyone else who made up this project find the hem hard to do because it isnt straight and therefore is very difficult to fold? idk, maybe its because of my satin, or something else completely spastic on my behalf! but if you did id like to know because i checked out some other peoples creations and know one had said anything….
oh and i also added lace up the top, i like its, i also like doing elastic casing, i think it looks so pretty!

anyway, love them, cant wait for it to be warmer, and next time i make them i might change the hem before i cut!
i maybe sometimes wear them under skirts because it makes me feel pretty .

p.s. watch this space. i will make some sweet socks to match!!!
