Girls' sized bloomers
Looking for bloomer patterns in the Simplicity catalog today at Joann's, I struck out. I saw a few in toddler sizes. However, I'm going to need bloomers in sizes 8 and 10, probably. I'd also like to do this CHEAPLY. These are for costumes.
We are doing a dance number to "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" from ANNIE. I was able to buy a jumper pattern for $1 in which I can have 11 little dresses made. But the girls need to wear bloomers under it, because part of their dance will include some kicks.
One thought I had was to take a cheap pajama bottom pattern, shorts, and put elastic around the waist AND around the legs. Do you think that would work? Or do you all have another idea? (I'm thinking about using cheap muslin for the bloomers. I found the fabric for the dresses on the dollar table at Wal-Mart today, but there wasn't enough for bloomers too.)
