I used two different Colette patterns to make this set as a very belated birthday present for my little sister. The shorts are form the Madeleine Mini Bloomers pattern, and the top is from the Nutmeg pattern.
The bloomers go together super quickly and easily, and are so comfy. Seriously, i wear the ones i’ve made for myself as jammies, under flouncy skirts, and even for swimming sometimes. They have to be the most practical thing i’ve ever sewn myself.
As for the top- also quick and easy, if a bit more fiddly than the bloomers. I’m told the fit is a little funny, but i’ll put that down to my having to guess what size to make.
Green cotton sateen from an old bed sheet, pink vintage cotton ric-rac, poly ribbon for the straps, and elastic salvaged from undies i never wore.
