Today I get to show you a really cool variation to the Perfect Playtime Pants Pattern! The idea of peplum bloomers was one of my first inspirations to designing this pattern, and now you can make some too!
How To Make Peplum Bloomers
1. Cut out the bloomer pattern pieces just like the pattern says. Sew the bloomers together except the elastic casing. Measure the length of the waist. 
2. That measurement will be used for a circle which is the inside of the peplum. I found a plate with a similar measurement and traced it. There are two layers of fabric here.

3. Decide how long you want the peplum to be and draw a large circle around the small circle. Mine was 6.5″ long.
