advice for pattern for bloomers

Posted by blessedwith2 (My Page) on

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?

RE: advice for pattern for bloomers

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.
