Free Pattern to Download: The Madeleine Mini Bloomers


Valentine’s day is coming this weekend, and whether you love it or hate it, you must admit having something adorable to lounge around in makes any day that much sweeter. So I present to you the madeleine mini bloomers, a free sewing pattern that you can download! It takes only a yard of fabric (along with some elastic and ribbon), and an hour or two of sewing to whip up these pretties.

These are no prim and proper Victorian bloomers, as you can see. They sit low on the waist, and are scandalously brief. The back view is particularly flattering. The waistband is sewn with two rows of elastic, and the legs are cinched with a length of ribbon. With just two pattern pieces, a beginner who is comfortable with elastic and buttonholes can make these.

The pattern is put together like any Burdastyle pattern. You just print out the sheets and tape them together to form the pattern. It’s multi-sized for XS to XL, which encompasses the usual sizes 0-18 in Colette Patterns’ range.

Thankyou so much. My thirteen year old daughter, her best friend, and I, had a lingerie making session yesterday, using this pattern. We made one set as per your instructions, and one set leaving the panties as a more traditional French knicker to go with a matching top. You can see them here…

We’re thrilled with the result and will be using more of your patterns…thanks again!


Hi.. I love these! but….could someone please recommend a seam finish? I read that french seams aren’t recommended for curves? not sure how to proceed… any help or comments would be greatly appreciated, thanx.


French seams are indeed tricky for curves. For lightweight fabrics, you have a few options. You can serge the edges (or use the zigzag or overlock on your sewing machine if you don’t have a serger). If your fabric is very tightly woven, you could pink the edges. You could turn the edges and stitch them, like a tiny baby hem.

Personally, I’d opt for serging / zigzag / overlock. It’s not very bulky, so it’s a nice finish for light fabrics.
