Fashion Friday: You heard Rumors about My Bloomers

What do you get when you buy a beautiful handmade vintage sheet at a yard sale...



and you add it to an altered pj pants pattern ( amy butler's lounge pants + knee gathers - quite a few inches in length= fancy bloomers)

and throw in a hankering for some pretty little somethings to throw on under a skirt?



You get my bloomers.



Are you blushing?

Happy Long Weekend,
And Margaritas for All,

Betty

I adore them! I've been wanting to make bloomers for a long time and am starting with some warm flannel ones that will largely be sleepware (like you, from a modified PJ pant pattern- mine the pattern in Weekend Sewing). They're so fantastic and great for skirts.

Glad the blog pony is showing you bloomers! I had bloomer pj's that I made back in the early eighties. I think I want some again! Can we bring the New Romantics? Hehe!

ooooh! Love the bloomers. Might need some for myself!

Johanna said...

awww! What a cute idea -- LOVE them! They're modest AND flirty all at the same time!!! Sooooo much better than the usual boxers I throw on under my voluminous & oft unnervingly windswept-prone skirts :(

Angelina said...

I haven't seen a pair of bloomers in ages! I love them! (I love the skirt you have on too.)

Your tutorial is up now on
Stitch and Boots- it looks really good!

Jennifer said...

Maddie said...

They are so cute!...but are they hot? I am all about the skirts all summer since they make things breezier...but oh how I love those bloomers!

I cannot tell you how much I love these. & given the amount of ruffle and eyelet I got at a recent craft swap, I'm going to be hunting for some bed sheets to make my own.
