I have been wanting to make a pair of the Madeleine mini bloomers for some time now but I wanted to make sure the pattern would actually fit me so I found a piece of old red fabric and decided to test it out before buying prettier fabric. I have to say the pattern was very easy and they are so cute that what was just a test pair are now my new favorite pajamas.

I made a few adjustments because I'm incapable of following directions. Instead of just using ribbon to bunch the legs I put in elastic because the ribbons didn't give when I moved and always felt like it was cutting of my circulation where as the elastic provides more give for movement. Then I sewed on the little bows made from leftover hem tape in my scrap bin  Smiley

Pattern can be found here thanks to the creators of it (NOT me) for making it available for free:

Those are adorable. I tried making my own bloomers using the same pattern but the crotch seams don't match up and I'm too new to sewing to know how to alter it myself. Any advice?

Nice bloomers!

Those are adorable. I tried making my own bloomers using the same pattern but the crotch seams don't match up and I'm too new to sewing to know how to alter it myself. Any advice?

The crotch seams are sewn to the like piece - so the front crotch is sewn to the other front and the same with the back.  Then, you sew the inseam (which does match up, I just made my first pair of these).  Does that make sense?

Step one:  Collect Underpants
Step two:  ? ? ?
Step three:  Profit!
