I love the sight of little babies wearing bubble bloomers. I feel babies would stay comfortable in them and it would look cute on little baby butts. 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.
These easy baby bloomers can be great as handmade gifts for a baby shower. You can make them with matching baby tops ( pattern coming soon) as a gift to your loved one’s baby! It is sure to become a staple in her summer closet!
This is a very simple baby bloomer pattern, which can be made in just 5 steps. Just two pieces to cut and a few stitches to be made to make these great looking bloomers. Sewing these bloomers were a breeze for me. I cut up all the three photographed here together and stitched all three in one sitting.
In fact, these were one of the first items I tried during my beginner sewing days.
Easy Baby Bloomers in 5 Steps
Medium- weight cotton fabric for the bloomers – 5/6 yard.
¾- inch elastic for the waist:
16.5 –inches for 3 to 6 months and 17-inches for 6 to 12 months.
3/8- inch elastic for the leg holes:
22- inches for 3 to 6 months and 23- inches for 6 to 12 months.
Gather your supplies.
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 1- 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 ¾- 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.
Our bloomer is ready!
