Bloomers

I made some bloomers to go with the dress I made for my baby girl. I used this Amy Butler book for the pattern. In the book they have written instructions on how to make the bloomers, but they don't give you illustrations on the step by step. I had never made anything that had a crotch before but I didn't think much of it. I just started sewing following the directions without really paying attention. Well when I got half way through I noticed something was totally wrong.

They looked like this

I die laughing every time I look at them. Devon said "what were you thinking? It is like you were sewing without even looking". I think that was pretty much what I was doing. I was in a hurry to get them done. I went back and looked at a pattern in another book with a crotch seam and quickly figured out what I had done wrong. My second attempt was much better.


Here is the dress along with the bloomers and a head band I made. I made the flower on the headband using this tutorial.


I also made a dress to match Amber's skirt . I made this dress a little bigger so she could wear it her first time at church. Of course amber wants to wear her matching skirt.
