An old fashioned item that's both practical and comfy. Bloomers are perfect for active little girls or for added warmth under a dress. Bloomers have an elastic waistband and elastic drawn ruffle on the leg. They will hit mid-calf on most girls. You may have us cut them shorter or longer as desired and also add a bit of eyelet lace to the hem. For a specific length, please measure from your child's natural waist down to where you want them to end on the leg. Take a look at the Whites, Lights and Naturals fabric chart and notice the different fabrics that are available for underclothing. There are some short descriptions which should help you choose the best fabric for your bloomers, based on when you will wear them the most. Choose a light fabric for warm weather and muslin or even flannel for winter. Bloomers are available in ladies and ladies plus sizes as well.
Age and size go fairly well with this pattern but if you'd like to be sure, measure your child's waist, check our Girl's Size Chart (see top of page) and choose the correct size. If you have any questions please contact us using our contact form.
