Colette Madeleine Mini Bloomers

Last week while cruising blogland I came across Colette Patterns through the helpful Figgy's Studio and found the most darling pattern, The Madeleine Mini Bloomers. I knew I just had to make them but with all that is going on right now, could not justify making these for myself while I have so many other projects in the works. Light bulb moment, my nieces' birthdays are just around the corner and before I knew it, the pattern was printed out, put together and well on its way for assembly.

Just look at how cute they are... with Black Ribbon and the Other with Navy Ribbon...

...complete with a Gen Paire Soeur label.

All curved seams are french seamed, the waist and leg openings were finished with a cover lock machine. The pattern and instructions in itself were a dream to work with, wish all patterns were made like this! Also used fabric already had, one of my goals for this year is to work my way through my fabric collection. Still holding onto stuff from design school, its been a little over five years now, time to let go. Did purchase little camis from Old Navy to go with the mini bloomers, one in black and the other in navy, the color name is "Goodnight Nora", just thought that was too cute.

Which brings me to another little tidbit of information: Through the Colette Patterns blog came across this "Stash Bustin' " challenge. If your're interested please visit So Zo... for all the details. Working on more "from the stash" projects, Spring has been inspired with all the sunshine we have been getting here in the Northwest. Sorry Sis, not rubbing it in!
Happy Weekend!
