So, I got to pinning and cutting. I found a great diaper cover pattern over at Dana Made It. This is a great basic diaper cover/bloomer pattern! Check it out! You will be glad you did!

Tank top or tee shirt
1/4 inch elastic for the legs
3/8 inch elastic for the waist
I started with a plain pink tank top. I forgot to take a picture before I cut it all up! Pin and cut the front and back pieces. Once you have cut front and back, cut three strips along the fold about 1 1/2 inches wide and the length of the widest part of the back side of bloomers.
Start with your strips and serge the outer edges. (If you don't have a serger, you can leave the edges raw or do a zigzag stitch instead.)
Sew down the middle of each strip and watch those ruffles start to appear!
There you have it! A lovely ruffle for that little booty!
Pin the ruffles in place and attach them to the back side of the bloomers. Remember to leave enough space at the top for your elastic casing. I kept the elastic thread in the bobbin for this part to allow it to ruffle up even more.
Now, you have the back side of your bloomers ready to go!
Check out the finished product!
These are too small for my baby girl, so I used teddy as a Ruffle Booty Bloomer model!
