Madeleine Bloomers in Stripes

I am so proud of my stripped bloomers! These are my first pair. I used linen fabric that I bought from a thrift store a while back. The pattern was a free downloadable pdf mentioned in an earlier post. I'm using these as my wearable muslin because I think I will go a size down for the next pair. For the next pair of bloomers, I will be using holiday fabric as pictured above.
I did have to make some changes regarding the elastic. I only had 1/2 inch elastic on hand, so I just made one 5/8 inch casing at the waistband. For the leg opening, I stitched the hem, folded it, and edge stitched the casing for the ribbon. The pattern was easy to follow with helpful pictures.

Night. Night.
