God Tier Bloomer Tutorial!
Or really, any basic bloomers with smooth cuffs!
I got a few asks wondering about my GT Dirk bloomers so here’s a basic tutorial. Bloomers are fun and super simple if you just pay attention to measurements! If you aren’t certain about the fit you should leave extra seam allowance you can always take the pants in while fitting!
First thing to note is I made my bloomers out of Cotton Sateen. It has a slight stretch but is still a woven. Mine has a nice finish to the face of the fabric but is not “shiny” like an actual satin. It is just a nice, medium weight, cotton…Just to be clear.
Second thing is, I wanted the cuffs on these bloomers to not be gathered with the pant itself. Dirk’s seemed like a nicely pressed cuff/hem rather than an elastic band in the cuff. But that’s just my perspective. If you don’t get what I mean exactly look at the pictures included of my cuffs and how they don’t wrinkle up even though the hem is gathered.
((As a side note I redid my cuffs since my first photoshoot because I swapped the color choice but it is sewn exactly the same so ignore the color changes between pictures!))
Here is the basic patterns/ measurements:
It is hard to explain sewing instructions if you don’t understand the basic principals but I will try my best!
Sew the pant like normal. Back side seams to front side seams, back inseams to front inseams, sew crotch. If you have not sewn pants before: (from noodle-head.com off of google)
Hem waist folding over fabric 1 1/2”*, leave opening to slip in elastic, hand sew shut when elastic connected.
For hem, this method gathers the fabric using elastic sewn directly ONTO the pant. On the wrong side of the hem sew 1/4” elastic on to fabric, you will have to stretch the elastic while sewing to fit, thus, creating gathers. Try to pull evenly throughout sewing to create equal gathers throughout!
Sew cuff ends together(see orange notches) creating a circle of fabric. Fold fabric in half on fold line so seam is hidden inside folded fabric. Sew cuff raw edges to elastic hem, right side to right side, try to sew directly on top of previous stitch line so that no thread shows on the right side of pant. Do NOT stretch elastic hem like you did before while sewing, you need to fit it into the already finished cuff.
^^ See how you don’t see the thread from gathering the elastic. You want to try and get the gathers to just poke out of the clean cuff.
Close up of finished gathered hem worn. My cuff is EXACTLY the size of my mid thigh but since it has a slight stretch from cotton sateen it is able to pull over my mid thigh and hug it tightly while not hurting.
TADA! Bloomers done! My seams were finished with a serger to prevent fraying but you could either leave them, since it is clean finsihed on the outside hems, or use a variety of other methods such as zip zag stitch, pinking shears, ect.
Hope this helps! Feel free to contact me if you have a specific question or you feel I left out something! =) And sorry for the lengthiness…
