Little Girl Bloomers Sewing Pattern

When my daughter was a baby, I loved looking for vintage inspired dresses and nightgowns.  I loved the long and flowy dresses.  As she grew, she loved picking nightgowns over pajamas sets.

    This didn't bother me.  I love making her nightgowns like our Sleepyhead Nightgown or the Jean and Jamey Jammies.  But my favorite nightgowns always included matching bloomers.

    And those bloomers didn't stop at sleepwear.  They were under dresses and tunics.

    I'm always looking for ways to make her nightgowns and dresses a bit more modest.  Yes, we use leggings a lot, but adding bloomers to her favorite nightgown is a nice way to add a little something.

    I've had this bloomer pattern for years.  In fact, it was one of my first ever, paid for sewing patterns. I've adapted it over the years and now it is ready for you to grab for free.

    The bloomer pattern comes in size 3 month to 12 years.  Which means, she can wear bloomers for a long time.  And of course, you can use this pattern for little boys as well.
