Is there anything cuter than bloomers on a baby? Seriously though.
My best friend is having her very first baby this Summer, a baby girl. Say it with me, awwwwwww…I know, I am so excited for this new Momma-to-be! And we all know what it is like to have that very first girl, its just…magic.
Needless to say, I had to make her something. Something handmade, unique and special for just her and that little lady.
So what could be cuter than bloomers on a baby? Ruffles on bloomers on a baby!
We have all seen the absolutely adorable ruffled butt bloomers, I decided to take that same idea and give it a bit of a twist. Placing the ruffles on side panels, and accenting with a giant bow that ties around the back.
Are you ready to make some Ruffled Baby Bloomers of your own?
First print out the free pattern pieces for size 0-6 months found HERE.
Once you have your pattern pieces cut, we can start sewing. I used linen, but any kind of cotton or knit will work just fine. Being a visual person, I like lots of photos with my tutorials. So be prepared for photo overload. Let’s go…
I did the waistband casing a little different. I didn’t want it to be all the way under the ribbon straps – so in order to keep it higher I sewed first in between the ribbon straps in front, then again around the back.
Hem the bottom of the bloomers, and you are finished! You can of course add an elastic casing around the legs if you wish – just use 1/4″ elastic at 8″ in length.
And there you have it – super cute ruffled bloomers for the little lady in your life!
I cannot wait to see the look on my friend’s face as she opens up this little package all wrapped up in pink tissue paper.
Thank you so much for having me Kate, I cannot wait to see what else the Ruffle Series has in store!
I hope to see you there.
