Bloomers, Shorts, Pants & Harems Sewing Pattern for Babies & Toddlers

Details

STYLE OUTLINE:

With simple styling, the Tumble Bums are easy fitting shorts, bloomers, plain pants & harem pants. They are super practical with no side seams, no pockets, nothing fancy; just a great fit. Best of all, they are FAST & EASY TO SEW!! 

The Baby & Toddler Tumble Bums are designed to fit neatly over a (disposable) nappy/diaper, this pattern covers from size 00000-3* (Small Newborn to 3 years old). 

Not only do you get to choose the style you want to make (shorts, bloomers, pants or harems), you also get to choose between 4 awesome waistbands that are simple to sew & look professional. See below for more details. 

CHOOSE THE STYLE OF SHORTS/PANTS YOU'D LIKE TO SEW: 
Choose from several lengths to suit the season & your child.
  • 3 Shorts Lengths: high thigh (Sporty), mid thigh (Middies) & low thigh (Stompers).
  • 3 Bloomer Lengths: high thigh (Sporty), mid thigh (Middies) & low thigh (Stompers).
  • Plain Pants & Harem Pants.
  • PLUS belly adjustment instructions if your child has a cute little pot belly in sizes 0-3.
THEN CHOOSE A WAISTBAND TO ADD ON:
Then choose from 4 easy waistbands to add to your shorts or pants.
  • The Covered Waistband: a simple fabric waistband with elastic placed inside which makes the waist gather up.
  • The Topstitched Waistband: This is very close to what you’ll find in stores. I have simplified it so that you can easily make it at home. It features fabric covered elastic with 3 rows of topstitching.
  • Exposed Elastic Waistband: Add contrast & colour to your pants/shorts/bloomers with this quick to sew, exposed elastic waistband.
  • Stretch Knit Waistband: This one gets asked for the most. A super comfy waistband method using cotton lycra, that’s easy & fast to sew, & comfortable to wear.
SKILL LEVELExperienced Beginner (with step by step instructions for each technique).
    SIZE RANGE: Small Newborn (0000) to 3 years (3) - disposable nappy happy! 
    *To determine size, measure around the hip/seat. This measurement is taken around the fullest part of the child's seat without a nappy (diaper) on. The tape measure should be firm but not tight.

    OTHER SIZES: If your child no longer wears a nappy/diaper, please use the Kids Tumble Bums Pattern (sizes 2-14) to avoid 'baggy bum'.  

    WANT POCKETS? If you'd like pockets, mock pockets or side leg ruffles, take a look at the Baby & Toddler Harem Pants.

     

    FABRIC & TRIM OUTLINE:

    TRIM REQUIREMENTS:  Harem Pants: 12mm (1/2") elastic. Bloomers: 9mm (3/8") elastic. Covered Waistband: 20cm (3/4") elastic. Topstitched* Waistband: 25cm (1") elastic. Exposed Elastic Waistband: 25-38mm (1-1.5") Plush or Decorative Elastic. Stretch Knit Waistband: cotton lycra fabric.
      
    FABRIC SUGGESTIONS:  Shorts, Bloomers & Pants - quilting cotton, cotton voile, linen, cotton blends, chambray, rayon. Ensure your fabric is not too thin. Stretch Knit Waistband (optional) - Cotton Lycra. 
    Note: If your fabric has a one-way print, ensure all pieces run the same way along the selvage. 
      
    FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric.
    Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.
      
    FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: CENTIMETRES / INCHES
    Fabric requirements for the Legs & Waistbands are separate. Add together if you are using the same fabric for both elements of your Shorts, Bloomers or Pants.
