Picnic-check bloomers {J.crew knockoff}

Are these not completely adorable?!?
These are the J.Crew little girls' Picnic-check bloomers. Yes entirely fantastic but seriously overpriced (sorry store that I love) and they were all sold out in the size I needed for my even more adorable niece. Soooo... I made them:

Theirs were originally $59.50 on Sale for $29.99. I paid less than $15 (not sure exactly how much because I bought almost double the fabric and tons of elastic to stock up).  I'm also working on a big sewing project for myself, well when I get the time or feel like it. So this was a nice break, they were so fast and easy!


So I'm wrapping these up and giving them to my crazy beautiful niece for her 2nd birthday. I have to grab some pics of her wearing them soon!


*Update: tutorial now available here!
