Bright and cheerful for sunny days, or layers of warm naturally dyed cottons and linen under dresses and pinafores. Whatever length you choose, from your cheeky bottom to your ankles, these bloomers will put a smile on your face that will be infectious.
These bloomers are all one-off, hand made items. If you would like me to make up a different size, length, or shade of fabric, or would like more than one pair, I can probably sort it for you. If you would like to see a fabric selection with a view to ordering a specific colour, I can rummage into my cloth selection and you can choose for yourself. Please do get in touch (see bottom of the page for my email address).
The organic fairtrade cotton, that some bloomers are made with, is naturally dyed with plants and minerals, which is far nicer for the environment than using chemicals. The cost to us, is that the colours aren't so 'fast'. These clothes will fade less if washed considerately and dried away from direct sunlight.
The bloomer sizing is stated as the actual hip measurement of the garment. If you are an average size 12, for example, a pair of bloomers measuring 44" at hip, will give you ample gathering. A pair that measures 38" at hip will fit you very snuggly. The finer, lighter fabrics (voile, batiste, silk) will need a tad more wriggle room (I'd leave a good 2-3" space), than a harder wearing linen or dress cotton.
If you don't have a tape measure, grab some string, wrap it (without tension) around the widest part of your hips, and then measure it against a ruler. It might feel like a faff, but it saves you half guessing the sizes and keeps us all away from those horrid consumer boxes. It'll also mean you actually get something that fits, and you won't need to send it back to me. If you're unsure, just get in touch and we can chat about it.
