Puffy bubble bloomers are my favorites as they are roomy and large enough to accommodate diapers. They can be made with light-weight or medium-weight cotton fabric in varying prints and colors.

Bubble bloomers can look great with anything that the baby wears. May it be onesies, tops or anything else. They are great for summer and worn over leggings, they can be great for the colder months too.

Step-1: Cutting the pieces.

 

 

Fold the fabric to fit the width of the template and place the template 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 along the two curved edges to join.

 

 

Step 3- Preparing the leg holes 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 hem down along the edge of the fold. Repeat 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 ends of the elastic by sewing back and forth a few times. 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 opening in the casing shut.

 

 

Step-5- Sewing the inseam.

 

Let’s sew the inseam.

 

 

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

Just making your bloomers, the elastic measurements seem way to long, is it meant to be cm not inches

The elastic measurements given in the tutorial are in inches. Just multiply by 2.5 to convert into centimeters.

When measuring the elastic, do you stretch it out and cut to your lengths or lay the elastic out without stretch and cut?

Thanks you!

You need to cut the elastic without stretching it!

This is probably a silly question, but do these fit over nappies?
