Black Flannel Bloomers

The "Bloomers for Winter"-project is still running, and I have just completed my second pair of bloomers. These are made of black flannel (I dyed an old bed sheet for the purpose), with lace accents, and satin bows. I used my favourite pair of pyjama bottoms as pattern, or rather, I used them to make the pattern.

The bloomers turned out quite nice, I think. They are certainly very comfortable, and should keep me warm in winter :o)

  1. I think you have done a lovely job. Since reading about your quest for bloomers, I've been thinking of making my own for Summer wear. Having thunderous thighs, wearing skirts is not always pleasant. I'm planning to use a pair of very worn soft lycra bike shorts as my pattern, just need to find the right fabric for summer.
    Thank you for your inspiration
