I've been on a potential bloomer kick (meaning I haven't made any, but I think I must Smiley ) and after only finding a scant handful of tut links around here I found this:

http://chestofbooks.com/crafts/needlework/Home-Economics/Chapter-V-How-To-Make-Bloomers.html

It is from the book "A Girl's Problems in Home Economics" c.1926, which appears to be a classroom text. It's so freakin' detailed you even get told to watch your sewing posture!

I don't know if I'll follow it to the letter, but it's a really great source for checking out construction...

Hope some fellow Cracksters enjoy it like I did

Awesome!  That book is great..  I love how it goes on about how bloomers are necessary for the "up-to-date" girl to have "perfect freedom of movement."  And the bit about changing your underwear once or twice a week...

What a great link! I love vintage sewing books. Here is a link to more vintage sewing manuals if anyone is interested.
