Divine Ruffled Bloomer Tutorial and Giveaway--Closed



Remember how so many of you wanted to know how to make 
Surprise!!!
I've put together a tutorial, but there's more.  I have a source for the fabric over at Ruffled Fabric.com who is generously offering 2 winners 1 yard of their lovely ruffled goodness and 1 yard of matching colored elastic each!  AND [I know, it just keeps getting better], for those who aren't one of the 2 winners, they are offering 10% off your order [use promotion code 10percent]!  
Christmas in Joo-ly is right!
Supplies:  Ruffled Fabric [1 yard] and elastic [1 to 1 1/2" wide]

1-Making sure the bottom of your fabric is evenly cut, lining up the ruffles, cut two pieces on the fold, using inside out leggings as a guide, including 1/2" extra for seam allowance.  

2-I didn't taper the bottom of the leg, and I cropped mine as well. [No need to hem it, yay!]

3-Open up both pieces, making sure all the ruffles are down, put right sides together [not shown] and stitch with a slight zig-zag from the waist to the crotch on both sides, as shown in the photo.

4-Pull the two seams together and stitch around the length of the legs, making sure ruffles match and are all facing down

5-Stretch a length of elastic around child's waist.  You want it snug.  Overlap ends and zig-zag stitch.
6-Pin elastic on the inside [the wrong side], overlapping 1/4".  You'll have to stretch the elastic a little bit to make it fit.
7-Zig-zag along the overlapped portion of the fabric.
8-Turn elastic under and stitch in the seam across the length of the elastic in front and back to keep the elastic down.



Azure loves her new leggings--can you tell?
Doesn't the color remind you of Baskin Robbin's Daiquiri Ice?


Ever had it?  It's yum.




To enter the giveaway, visit rufflefabric.com and come back to tell me what you'd love to have in your fabric stash [they even have polka-dots!] and perhaps your plans for it?

Giveaway goes through Monday, July 5th, winners announced Tuesday.
10 % off promotion goes through Friday, July 11th.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great tutorial! Thanks so much for sharing it! You don't realize, when you see a picture like that, how easy it can be.

    I love the Ivory! I'd love to make bloomers for my two girls and adorable ruffly diaper covers as gifts for two baby girls, still in utero at the moment.

    PS I worked at Baskin Robbins as a teenager and developed an unhealthy relationship with Daiquiri Ice. Yum.

    ReplyDelete
  46. love the Daiquiri color, love the ice too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. oooh...aahhh.... I'm going to say white ruffles! My gorgeous baby Vivian would look just way too cutie-paah-tootie in white ruffled leggings.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would have to make some matching leggings for my girls, in yellow or bubble gum pink. But I also might want to experiment with making some throw pillows, since ruffled pillows are all the rage right now. I hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Such darling bloomers! I LOVE love love the ruffled fabric. Have to get a few colors I'm afraid...

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would make those awesome leggings, of course...but dang! I want all the fabrics!

    If I had to pick ONE, it would be the charcoal gray version.

    ReplyDelete
  51. OOO!!! I just like it all :D I think I'd make my little princess a dress and some bloomers from the bubblegum pink & white fabric... but probably a valance for my kitchen from the yellow with white polka dots. tough choice!! :D

    ttcrafts.etsy.com

    ReplyDelete
  52. It would have to be the yellow with white polkadots. Yellow is my favorite color with turquoise a very close second.

    missmelissaf @ yahoo . com

    ReplyDelete
  53. Whoops, forgot to tell what I'd make. I think it would have to be another pillow for my bed. The yellow would coordinate perfectly with my quilt.
    thanks again,
    Melissa

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am loving the brown and white polka dot fabric. I love the charcoal too though. I think it would look lovely as a skirt, since I am not blessed with any little girls. It would probably look amazing as a sleeveless shirt. Ruffles are all the rage now. I can never decide what a fabric wants to be until I hold it in my hands though. It is amazing fabric though, in any color, or pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow, how to choose a color? I think I love the charcoal or the light pink the best. And of course I'd have to do ruffled leggings (light pink). Though the charcoal could look AWESOME as a flounce/train on a skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  56. definitely Charcoal Cascading Ruffle Fabric
    likely to make tights for my wee-one

    ReplyDelete
  57. i like the charcoal or the yellow polka dots!

    eadelarm@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm so excited to find out how easy those adorable leggings are! I would choose white for sure (although the charcoal is tempting!), mostly because I was stunned with the beauty of the white ones you made for your older daughter, and I want some just like it for my own!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like the gray, the red, and the turquoise, oh and the yellow. thanks for chance.

  60. This is the thing, I don't sew, I mend. What is going through my mind right now is "I can't believe I ever bought my girls leggins". After looking at your tutorial, wow easy,I think I need to go buy some fabric and make my girls, and my nieces thousands of leggins in every color and pattern. The waste band is what frightened me but I think I can do it your way.

    ReplyDelete
  61. soooo sorry that would be the waist band...it has been a long night.

    ReplyDelete
  62. White. But I have 4 year old triplet girls who like to be individuals (each with a favorite color), so maybe bright pink, plum, and red.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the yellow with white polka dots and the charcoal! They would make darling bloomers or a fun sassy skirt for my little girl!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've been loving yellow lately so definitely the yellow & white polka dots and I'd love to make a dress for my little one & try your tutorial as well!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. OMG! Talk about some super cute leggings! Can I say that I can't decide what I'd like to add to my stash? How about all of it. I love the dots. I should write them with more color combo suggestions!!

    Thank you for introducing me to ruffle fabric. I'm a ruffle addict and while they are too cute, they are extremely time consuming. But oh so worth it. Because of the time and effort involved in making your own ruffles, I'd gladly pay $15.99/yd for this beautiful textile goodness!

    ReplyDelete
  66. oh my goodness! Cutest thing ever! I think I'd make some bloomers, maybe a little crewcuts inspired dress or something... I love the yellow and charcoal, can't decide what's my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh so many to choose from... I would pick the brown/blue polka with hopefully enough to make some pillow covers?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ohhh ruffled fabric, who knew?! We have three little ladies who would look just precious in those little britches!! Great Tutorial!!
    I'd pick white, sew sweet! : )

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am in love with it all but the yellow polka dot, WOW so cute!! I may need 1 yard in each color.

    ReplyDelete
  70. So cute! Thanks for the tutorial. I think I would pick the bright pink. But the red is amazing too.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love the brown ruffle dots... so adorable and the projects to do with it are endless!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I would love the pink/orange sherbet made into a top. the charcoal for a pair or two of those leggings.

    Hope I win; however, it is really kind to have 10% off as well. Thank you!

  79. i love the black and charcoal, and since i don't have a girly-girl to make some for i think i'd like to rock a pair of the ruffled bloomers myself!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Well I just love it all, but I really like the brown with white polka dots. I love the capri idea, I also think it would be cute on a onesie or a blanket even.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I would have to have the hot pink and the yellow/white polkadots. My daughter lives in ruffles and pink and these would be perfect for her!

    ReplyDelete
  82. The leggings are adorable. That yellow polka dot took my eye along with the hot pink. I have never seen this kind of fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Oh they are all adorable, but I think for ease of matching with little girl tops I would want the bubblegum pink and white, or the charcoal. This fabric would be adorable in a skirt, too! Thanks for sharing your tutorial, it's so much easier than it looks!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I would love all the colors but if I had to choose it would be white because of the versatility. Such a great fabric. An instant skirt, it's awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  85. That is the most awesome thing ever!!! I love the look of ruffles but hate how much effort they are! The white would be great to keep on hand as a simple way to lengthen clothes my daughter outgrows, but I love red! The pink & white stripe would make an adorable skirt and the yellow with white polka dots would make a cute dress.

    ReplyDelete
  86. So cute! I love the brown and white polka dot! I would also have to have some of the basic black.
    Thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  87. The pants are darling. But this little ruffle fabric information couldn't have come at a better time!
    We have a wedding to go to and I wanted to make my girls some ruffly skirts. So purple (or plum) would be the color on top of our list.
    Thank you ever so!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I W_A_N_T some of this!!!!!! I would love to use this to make a beautiful dress for my 8 year old daughter for her baptism at the end of this month. Do they have plain white? I'm about to spend a lot of time on their site, LOL.

  142. Gosh, I was rushing for my credit card the moment I saw this post. I want them all, but I think the most versatile for my darlingest two-year-old would be the pink and white striped. This is the most charming article of clothing I've ever seen, and I would never have guessed it was made from ruffled fabric. I for one am very grateful for this tutorial -- sure to be one of my all time faves!

  143. If it were my daughter choosing it would definitely be the pink ruffles, I love the polka dots though, esp. the brown and white one. I can think of something to do with all of them! :)

  144. Oh my goodness, this is the best fabric I have ever seen! I love the pink and white stripes and then also the polka dots! Target had skirts like this, and I would love to make myself a skirt....and maybe some bloomers for my daughter!

  145. Well if I could, I'd pick them all, but since that won't fit into my budget, I think I'd pick the yellow and white polk-a-dot. Yellow is such a fun, cheery summer color. I plan to attempt making the the leggings. Oh maybe I'd use it to embellish some shirts too. The possibilities are endless :0)
    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and the ruffled leggings tutorial.

  147. How to even decide. My little girl is in love with purple (she's 3) and so I think I would go with the Plum one. Very cool fabric!

  148. I love the bright pink-- it would practically match everything in my daughter's closet :) I'd definitely go for your adorable leggings :)

  149. I think I would go with the basic white. So pretty and it would go with more!

  150. Wow .. I'm in love! Anything I don't have to hem ... AMAAAZING!!

  151. Posts like this and fabric stores like ruffled fabric, make me long for a little girl. Since I have only boys, I would love to try and make a skirt for myself in Charcoal! One yard might not cut it though, so maybe a new church bag in polka-dots??! The possibilities are endless though!

  152. I would love, love, love the red ruffle fabric!

  153. I like both the white and the blue that you used in this tutorial.. I forget what it is called.. The fabric is beautiful and I love the ruffles! I would have to make some ruffle-but diaper covers! My absolute favorite.. But I dont have any baby girls yet... so it would have to wait for that.. I might come up with another use for it too though since I wouldnt be patient enought to let that yummyness sit on a shelf for very long.

  163. I love this idea! My oldest girl will only wear dresses, but she is also very active and flips her legs around and we are working on not showing panties. Some cute little bloomers might just solve my problem. The white would go with everything.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Woah, those are cute. I would love to have the pink ruffles. My little girl loves wearing her dresses, but we have the problem of not showing panties. And the older she gets, the harder it is to find bloomers that fit. This is such a cute idea. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  165. These are so cute, I'm going to have to make a pair! I love the white so that it would go with everything!

  166. I have my 5 1/2 year old sitting her next to me. She is ooohhhhing and awwwwwing over the Pink/Orange Sherbert and the Bubblegum Pink.

    I would definitely make the leggings with your tutorial. Plus I may just need to buy more because a little skirt would also be fantastic!

    So cute! Thanks for the info and opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  167. Wow! First, thank you for the tutorial. Second, thank you, thank you for introducing me to ruffled fabric.com Love it! Honestly I would love any of them but the Bright Pink, the Bubblegum pink and white and the brown with white dot are on the top of my list of favorites! Gorgeous!!!!

  168. All the colors are fantabulous, but I think black is the best choice for this mom of older children :)

  169. I think you can never go wrong with hot pink!! I have twin girls so I have to make everything in two's! Hope I win!!!

  170. I love the bubblegum pink and white ruffle fabric and I think I'd make some leggins for her and maybe if I'm brave a skirt for me!

    ReplyDelete
  171. Yellow with White Dot! I would make leggings for my 22 months old and a skirt for my 6 month old.

    I never knew that you could buy such fun fabric. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  175. The polka dots are cute, and I always love aqua! These pants are just darling, and I'm thinking about a few little skirts for my little lady, nothing cuter than a diapered bum crawling around in ruffles! :)

  176. I love green and the charcoal!! Fingers crossed :)

    ReplyDelete
  177. I love the charcoal color, and would definitely make a skirt out of it (I've seen so many like it in stores.) I love your tutorial, maybe I'd make a pair for my younger cousin.

    ReplyDelete

  180. What an awesome tutorial thank you so much! I can't wait to make my little beautiful angel some. I love the ruffle fabric this is the first time hearing and seeing it. I love all the different styles, colors,and patterns offered. I would love to win a yard of this fabulous fabric. Its so hard to pick which one I would choose I like the brown and white polka dots, same with the yellow dots, oh the pink and white is awesome as well, and that charcoal is so stunning and out of all of them I would more than likely choose the charcoal.

  184. LOVE. IT. The leggings you made are absolutely adorable! My little one would go cRaZy over a pair of these. Love all the adorable ruffle fabric options too! So hard to choose just one. But alas...I pick the Bubblegum Pink & White Stripe Cascading Ruffle Fabric. Fingers crossed to win and make a pair of leggings and a matching pillowcase top!

  185. Hola Katy! While I recognize that at this point you probably have enough fabric to make all your ruffled dreams come true I wanted to let you know where I ended up getting mine from. After my last post on your blog I hunted and hunted for it. I ended up buying some on ebay and some at Target. Yes, Target. My ebay purchase was 2.25 yards of stretchy (both ways) dark pink fabric with white polka dots. It was 16.50 plus shipping, which ended at 22.50. My Target purchase was more dark pink, but solid this time. On the clearance rack in the girls' section I found a skirt of ruffled fabric for $9. It already had a black, 1.5 inch elastic waistband so all I had to do to make it size 4T is take it apart and cut it down. A-dor-able. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  186. Oh so cute. I would have never thought off using this ruffled fabric for anything else but a skirt/dress. Thanks for opening my eyes...

    ReplyDelete
  187. I actually love that frosty light blue you've used, but don't see it on their site. I might choose the Navy, or white otherwise, and try making a summer top.

  199. Hi Katy, I came across this on Pinterest and it caught my eye (not because of the bloomers, though they are SO sweet!), but because of that orange dress!! How sweet it is!! Did you sew that one? I am looking for a patterm though I think I could probably draft one up - a lovely A-line shift is quite simple, I would think. I, of course, have NO experience with such an undertaking so I will appeal to my Mama to help!!
