advice for pattern for bloomers

blessedwith2April 24, 2008

I am new to this forum, and fairly new to sewing. I am seaching for patterns for bloomers in size 3 & 4 for my twin girls. I am having a hard time finding anything over a 12month size. I would like to make both bloomers that are short (the diaper cover style) and bloomers that are longer more like shorts. Any advice?

You'll have the best luck finding patterns like this on sites that sell sewing patterns for modest clothing or vintage patterns. Try Googling these phrases:

sew pattern modest clothing
sew pattern girl vintage bloomer

Here are a few patterns I found:
#FP020. Bloomers Pattern, 3 variations, girls sizes thru women's XL
Girl's pantaloons with ruffles; you can probably shorten these

Another option is vintage patterns, for example:
Toddler dress and bloomers pattern, 1997
The shortie PJ bottoms in view D

***I've purchased vintage patterns from Lanetz Living and have had very good service and prices.

Check out the patterns for Raggedy Ann costumes. I made myself a costume and it had the bloomer pattern. Should have it for kids too. There should be prairie girl costumes and they should have bloomer patterns too.

Hey Blessed,

I am a quilter who recently got into sewing for the grandbaby. Simpliicty 4505 has a great pattern for undergarments. We used it in class to make pantaloons it was great. My grand is a 3T.

Hope that helps.

I think Nanci means McCalls 4505. M4505 is very cute slips, camisoles, panties and bloomers. Wow, Nanci! I don't even have grandkids yet, but I think I need this for my collection.

Size groupings are 3-4-5-6 and 6-7-8.
