Puffy little bloomers are my favorites and with the elastic waistbands, they are roomy and large enough to accommodate diapers. These stylish baby bloomers can be made with lightweight or medium-weight cotton fabric in varying prints and colors for a baby girl or baby boy.

Step-1: Cutting the pieces.

 

 

Fold fabric to fit the width of the template and place the pattern pieces over it. Mark around it and cut to get the bloomer pieces.

 

Your bloomer pieces will look like this. Note that one is the mirror image of the other.

 

Step 2: Sewing the side seams.

 

 

Keep the two bloomer piece layered, with the right sides together and aligning the edges. Sew with a straight stitch along the two curved edges to join.

 

 

Step 3- Prepare the leg openings and the waist elastic casing.

 

Let’s hem the lower edges of the bloomer (note that the lower hem is also the lower elastic casing).

 

Fold the lower edge of one of the legs by 3/8- inch and press. Fold again by ½- inch and press once again.

 

 

Sew the folded edge down in a straight line. Repeat steps on the other leg of the bloomer.

 

 

Let’s prepare the casing for the waist elastic.

 

 

Fold the upper edge of the bloomer by 3/8-inch and press.

 

 

Fold by 5/8- inch and press once again.

 

 

Sew the casing down along the edge of the fold, leaving about 2- inches for elastic insertion.

 

Step-4- Inserting the elastic.

 

 

Next, cut the leg elastic into two equal pieces. Insert the elastic pieces through the casings in the hemline of the bloomer, with the help of a safety pin.

 

 

Secure the elastic ends by sewing back and forth a few times to form locking stitches. Repeat on the other leg.

 

 

Take the required length of the 1/2- inch elastic and insert it through the opening in the waist casing, using a safety pin.

 

 

Keep the ends of the elastic overlapping by about ½- inch and sew back and forth to join.

 

 

Sew the open hole in the casing shut.

 

 

Step-5- Sewing the inseam

 

Let’s sew the inseam (crotch seam).

 

 

Keep the inseam of the front and back aligned and sew it shut as marked.
