I made the Madeleine mini bloomers from the free Colette pattern (http://www.colettepatterns.com/blog/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-madeleine-mini-bloomers).
I made a size medium but they were TINY so I didn’t elasticate the bottom of the legs as I thought that would make them even shorter. I am undecided as whether to add some buttons or not, the ones in the picture are just placed on, should I sew them on?
The material is just a very light, blue and white checked cotton, which was given to me by a kind neighbour who was clearing out some old patterns and material.
