These are exactly like our bloomers except that the legs are not drawn in at the bottom, creating a split slip. They are also shorter than our bloomers so that they don't fall below the hem of skirts. We appreciate these in the summer when it is hot and use them instead of underclothing plus a slip. Split slips are similar to pantaloons but are shorter and cut wider, feeling more like a slip. We will make these in standard lengths for your child's size but if you would like 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 split slip, based on when you will wear them the most. Choose a light fabric for warm weather and muslin or even flannel for winter. Split slips 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.
