I found this material as a nasty comforter at one of my local thrift store.. they wanted only 1 buck for it.  Sounded good, I own a washing machine and a seam ripper, my mom said I was crazy.  Here is my first try at bloomers, I need some cause I have a son, so I can't be trampy anymore.  Sad  But I don't want my million skirts to go to waste.  So here's my comprimise, haha!

Buuuuut, they don't give that same look on my big butt, so I need to make a longer pair, for the ruffleness.
Here is my favorite stitch in the world.  Number 15 on my Cosco Brother.

It is my cheating stitch, Hem?  whatever.  This will keep it from unraveling.  Works great for me, and great for making quick 2T pants!
Buuuuuut, I dunno what to do with them, I dun wanna sell them.. hence the cheater stitch... and they have a hole!  Darn. 
Maybe they can go on the sale rack...

That's a really cute idea Smiley. Perhaps you could just stick some sort of a patch over the hole? Or maybe a few everywhere (depending on where the hole is) so it looks like you'd always planned them that way? Or perhaps pair them with a cami/tshirt/whatever it is you find nice and comfy and wear them to sleep in? I think it looks really cute as displayed on your dummy Smiley You could always add some lace around the legs or some bias trim around the hem to hide the stitches if you wanted too (but I guess that negates the purpose of cheating in the first place xp)

Good luck figuring out what to do with them.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I was thinking about patching that hole... Lace would prolly make em look better for myself.  Or ruffles to hide my pudgy thighs.  They would make nice jammie's too.  Okie, mine they stay.  Thanks!  I don't think I could bear to see that material leave my ownership anyways.

i vote you use this opportunity to bring back the bloomer, i for one would join your campaign. you did a great job with them, so deffo use this as a learning curve to make up another pair for yourself!  Smiley
