My first project!
Made from a pair of long satin pajama pants I had… Just measured on my body, cut, sewed, and decorated with pretty ribbon and pleats down the front. I happened to have that ribbon laying around from somewhere… much like the pajama pants…
I plan to make a matching top using the leftover pant legs ^_-

It has elastic waist and leg openings. I was inspired by Colette’s mini bloomers, although I didn’t follow the pattern, or style exactly (made them even more mini and used elastics instead of ribbon ties _ )

Material Notes

white satiny material, brown satin ribbon, polyester elastic bands




Garment Type
Classic, Goth/Gothic Lolita, Romantic, Victorian

    Very cute! I really like the white and brown color combination. I made mine and posted them earlier this week at: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/colette-bloomers-rock and made them in a blue and white color combination. Yours turned out just awesome! Nicely done!
