Bloomers or Pantaloons


My 5yr old daughter doesn't like to wear underpants, yet she loves to wear skirts and dresses. As the weather is mostly too warm now for her to wear the jeans/pants under her dresses that she normally wears I decided to make her some bloomers.
Well haven't they been a hit! She loves them and my other daughter, 8yrs, loves them too. She recently fell over on a dirt road in a dress and skinned all up her thigh, if we had bloomers then the damage wouldn't have been near so bad.
Over the next few weeks I will make some more for the girls.
oh, the pattern is a Sense and Sensability pattern 'Girls Pinafore and Pantaloons' which is available from Homeschool Heaven.
I have had no internet here since Thursday due to some kerfuffle between the service provider and the satelite company, all subscribers with our service provider have 30 days to find another provider. fun fun fun.
I have been working on a secret santa gift to take to Kerry's Christmas day at Cottage on the Hill in December. Also still doing bits and pieces on christmas projects, which I will share another day.
Thanks for all your comments! Looking forward to reading more....

Those bloomer are just georgeous... Just add a bit of frill/lace at the bottom and she will feel very girly!

How old fashioned. Sarah stole my idea, Iwas going to suggest some frills as well. You will have to do it now.

Hi Bec! Nice to see you in blog world! (We met briefly over a year ago at a homeschool meeting in T.)
I love all your quilts - just gorgeous! And the bloomers are so cute! (My 6yr old has a similar issue with underpants... might make her some of these...) And all those lovely cows and chickens... *sigh*.
See you round!

Hi Bec, glad you found an easy and fun solution for your DD. Are they easy to make? Hope so! Too bad about the internet connection situation, computers are great when they're working but when there's a problem.....UGH

oh what a wonderful idea! My NINE yo daughter hates underpants and I thought she was the only one! I have bought ever style imaginable to no avail! I will HAVE to try these. She is already complaining that she will soon be in her summer uniform and will have to wear undies no matter what! thank you :)
