My Colette's Madeline Mini Bloomers

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 ; )

The free pattern download can be found on the Colette Pattern’s website:

Thanks so much to Sarai for the sweet pattern!

Material Notes

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.

      I love this pattern and love the fact that it is free! If the pattern companies give out any patterns for free it is usually the fugliest ones that don’t sell ; )

      They were very easy to sew and have so much potential for change with different fabric choices. I think this is a pattern I will be making again and again.
