These bloomers were requested the week before Christmas and were sewn later that day when I was totally insane. I used my go-to kid pants pattern (I don't have the pattern # in front of me, but really, any one will do fine) and just made them shorter, added the lace on the hem, and some ribbon (not functional—decorative only) on the side. The ribbon bows are stitched down, so they can't come untied. This minimizes issues that may arise which could result in not leaving the house anytime soon, at all. They are for the oldest daughter, but a request has been made by the middle child as well, although it's fleeting.
These are perfect for under dresses along with Heidi and Little Bo Peep style dress up. And, they match her dolly's bloomers, so there you go. Matching the dolls has gotten very important. Ask Grammie. She has been slaving away sewing a matching jacket for Sadie to go with the jacket Santa (Grammie) made for her dolly. Of course, there was a doll sized muff too, and when Sadie got her jacket to match, Delia asked where the matching muff was. Tough crowd. I love this so much—sewing doll clothes and matching clothes for the girls and all that, but sometimes I wish for the days when they would only wear pajamas and lifevests (for real) or I just want them to wear yellow jumpsuits everyday and be done with it. Like in Bottle Rocket. Or Devo.
