Blue bloomers

I have just finished making shirts for my husband and son, but haven’t taken pictures of them being worn yet as I have to wait until this weekend. Anyway, just after I cut all the pieces for both shirts, I found that there are still little fabrics left, just enough for a pair of shorts for myself. I use Jane pattern from Burdastyle and lengthened the legs about 4 cm. The legs of the shorts are on fabric selvedges, so they didn’t have to be hemmed. Then I stitched two rows of elastic shirrings on both legs, turning the shorts into a cute bloomers! The fabric is cotton and very comfortable. I think the bloomers is perfect for these hot summer days and I can also wear them under my short dresses.

The fabric is actually white with wide blue borders in wave shape, but I only have most of the blue part left for my bloomers. It is cotton from IKEA, comes ready cut in 150 cm by 3 m. So I managed to make one men’s shirt, one kid’s shirt, and one bloomers out of it! Woohoo! Pictures of the shirts are coming soon.

      I told him to be quiet while I was taking pictures, which he managed to do for about ten minutes. He finally couldn’t stand it anymore and jumped right in! :D

      I wore the bloomers under my dress today and it was indeed very comfortable! Now I don’t have to be afraid of the wind anymore :) I think I will need to make some more.
