Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
this listing is for VINTAGE KITTY lightweight cotton bloomers.. this fabric is lightweight cotton.. and a little bit sheer, so I recommend these would be worn as layering bloomers, ie under tunics, dresses or skirts..
dont be shy..! these are gorgeous..! so very pretty , such a delicate, french style look....
this fabric was a piece left over from a top NZ designer, and I was lucky enough to get it..! It was never available in stores here, and I will never be able to get more..
Ive made my Vintage Kitty bloomers from this fabric, I think its perfect for it..
the colours are a background of soft lemon, with a 3-D stripe of a denimy cornflower blue sewn down the length, every few inches... and intermittently embroidered with little bouquets of flowers... soooo pretty..!
the edges of the blue voile are raw and fraying.. Ive hand dyed cotton lace, a delicate bluey grey to match for the ribbon casing at the cuff, and Ive added a blue grey lace on the hemline..
elasticated waist for an easy comfy fit.. check out the close up pics... such a pretty fabric..! the seam binding ribbon tie is an icy blue..... tighten the ribbon above the cuff for more of a balloon effect in the leg, or loosen for a wider , straighter leg look.. both ways look great... this pair is adorned on the back with one of my beautiful Vintage Kitty patches..
(I love raw edged, fraying linen.. so you will see raw edges on most of my LILY HANNAH and VINTAGE KITTY garments.. it lends itself to that gorgeous faded glory look that I love...)
these bloomers go with all of my LILY HANNAH TUNICS AND TOPS.. they are totally versatile.. and did I mention gorgeous..!?! (more listings for tunics coming up..!)
** important note...
this fabric is delicate, but at the same time, its very wearable.. but as you can see by the measurements below.. Ive added in some extra fabric to the width so there is no need for any strain on the seams.. treat like silk...
so if you usually wear my Med/XL bloomers , this is still the size for you, even tho the measurements below are larger.. Ive just added a bit of extra fabric in there ) its really added no extra bulk as the fabric is lovely and light, so dont worry about that.. the extra fabric should be filled with space, not body..lol.. , if you usually wear a plus size Vintage Kitty bloomer, ie (XL-plus), dont worry, I have one Plus size pair available , coming in another listing..
I would describe this pair as MEDIUM TO XLARGE, (the elastic can be tightened to a smaller size if you need, or made a larger size.. please do check the measurements below to make sure they will fit you..there is no stretch in this cotton, it is a lightweight summer weight fabric... I recommend this style should be worn loose and baggy..
max waist 25 inches (63.5 cm) ONE side lying flat, so double for full circumference, relaxed elastic 15 1/2 inches one side (39.5cm) can be altered smaller if you need..
max hips 28 inches (71cm)
top of thigh side to side 17 inches (43cm)
inside leg to hem 22 inches (56cm)
outside leg - waist to hem is 36 inches (91.5cm)
rise in front about 15 1/2 inches (39.5cm), in back about 16 1/2 inches (42cm)
*washing instructions.. hand wash is best.. or if you must, machine wash in cold or tepid water on delicate and lay flat to dry..
*these bloomers have delicate lace components.. please wear gently.. imperfections, tiny marks or repairs, if any are part of the charm of wearing beautiful re-created garments.. please know that I would not offer anything that I wouldnt wear myself..
dont hesitate to convo me if you require other measurements or info regarding this or any other of my listings... Im new at this so I may have missed some bit of vital info..!
