My very own comfy pair of Colette Pattern’s Madeline Mini Bloomers.
I followed pattern directions pretty closely, but using french seams as this stuff ravels like mad! I am especially pleased that pleats are included in the buttonhole area as my buttonholes are awful ; )

Thanks so much to Sarai for the sweet pattern!
Elastic, ribbon, dusky-peachy-pink mystery fabric from a thrift shop. Burn test indicates some kind of acetate. Feels slinky and soft, like a slightly thicker charmeuse. Was very hard to keep it from sliding around. If anyone knows what this might be called, drop me a line as I got 8 yards for $3! It seems I can’t pass up a deal on fabric of any kind.
