Denim Bloomers

I needed to get some jean shorts for the Little Miss, but then there was some car trouble that required fixin’, and I was suddenly on a “spending freeze.”  I remembered that I had some lightweight, stretchy denim left over from making jeans for Bitty Baby, so I decided to try to make some bloomers.  I used the basic tutorial found here, and smocked the leg openings (which was as easy as the tutorial promisedso much fun!).  I didn’t have a bloomer pattern, so I freehanded one based on this picture and sized similarly to an existing pair of her shorts.

They turned out as well as can be expected, and I added some fun detailing of faux pockets and side seams.
