I have been not so patiently waiting for baby sized bell bottoms from Petite Stitchery since testing the girls pattern last Fall. The wait is finally over and the Baby Bitty Bells are finally here and they do not disappoint!
This pattern features three different flare options: bootcut, medium flare and large flare. You can choose from a knit waistband or elastic waistband. They also have added a jumper option which is my very favorite! I may or may not have already sewn up eight pairs for her already and do not plan on stopping. Bell bottoms are the new leggings this year at my house.
For the pairs pictured below I used the medium flare and knit waistband. I also slightly mashed sizes which was very easy to do. My daughter measures 18 month in girth but 12 month in width and inseam length. So the straight 18 month is too big and size 12 is too small. To adjust for her measurements I simply used the 12 month length and width, however, I used the 18 month rise and they fit PERFECT.
Sunflowers were my favorite during my teenage years and I am SO happy they are back in style. These sunflowers from Raspberry Creek Fabrics are gorgeous and I knew as soon as I saw them they would be amazing bell bottoms. They are by far my favorite pair I have sewn up so far. I paired it with the Juliet leotard also from Petite Stitchery in cotton lycra from Purple Seamstress and added some fringe trim to the bodice to add to the boho feel of the sunflowers.
For the jumper option I wanted something more neutral that would pair with multiple tops. I went with a faux denim I got last Fall from Knitpop and also paired it with another Juliet leotard in a mustard polka dot from Hobby Lobby that screams Fall to me. I have stretch corduroy planned for the next jumper!
The pattern is on sale for a short time and even better is that they updated the additional options to the Tardy Bells and added women’s sizing as well. No worries if you miss the sale pricing, they have bundle discounts available on the website as well! I can’t wait to sew up some mommy and me sets! I’d love to see what you create:)
