I made some ruffled baby bloomers using this really gorgeous pattern from Bettsy Kingston http://www.kelanifabric.com.au/index.php?PCID=11948&PSO=236&PSID=BKRP&PSV=Primary&CDO=

What do you think?



I think they turned out really well. I had a bit of trouble with the leg casing. You just overlock or zigzag stitch the raw edges and then turn them over creating the casing. My casing was a mess. I couldn't get it to sit nicely. On the plus side, when they were finished they looked fine. The gather hid all the messiness.

I bought a singlet and put a little brooch on it to go with the bloomers


I love making accessories. I can't help it!

I bought my pattern from here http://www.duckcloth.com.au/item.php?item_id=1559&category_id=117 Shipping was free because I'm in Australia.

Maybe email them and ask how much it would be?

Thank you so much for compliments. Made me blush so much!

Very cute and well done.
