Place both bloomers pieces with right sides together and pin, then sew the crotch area (curved area).
To create a lower front (and have a higher back rise) align your ruler along the top edge diagonally so your front (on the left) is 1″ lower. Trim off the diagonal piece with your rotary cutter.
To create the elastic casing, fold down to top edge 1/4″ and press all the way around. Fold down to 1″ and press again.
Sew the casing down just as you did with the crop top. Leave a 1″ opening in the center back. Backstitch the beginning and end.
Now it’s time to add the leg elastic. Insert it the same way you did with the other elastic. Use straight pins to secure both ends of the elastic on either side. Let it peek out about 1/4″. Hand stitch or machine sew the elastic to the fabric. Repeat with other leg.
Pin and sew the crotch area closed. Hem the edges.
Secure a safety pin to the bloomers elastic and insert it into the casing. Hand stitch both ends together and close the opening with your machine.
Last step is to sew the bow following this tutorial (the measurements for the bow for this outfit is 11″x3″ and 2.5″x5″). Sew the bow to the bloomers’ front by hand stitching very close to the middle piece.
Your adorable Maui 2-piece baby outfit is done!

This is as cute as could be!!! We love it!
Can’t wait to try this! Thank You!!
why is it so hard to find the free pattern to print????????
There is only the crotch cutout to print. If you are not finding the download link, it’s stated at the very beginning to go to page 2. It’s on the bottom.
I did that and you only get size chart and crotch cutout
That is all you need to create this outfit. There is a chart to cut the pieces for the top and shorts. When you follow through with the tutorial you will be able to create this with no problems.
Thank you, Denise.

WHERE WOULD I BE ABLE TO GET THE PATTERN FOR THE SHORTS? I WANTED TO MAKE ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER BUT I CANT SEEM TO FIND THE PATTERN FOR THE BOTTOM ON EITHER PATTERNS (THE SUNSUIT AS WELL)
Thank you for checking out this free pattern post! There is no template for the shorts, there is a cutting chart and downloadable crotch templates though. That’s all you need to make the shorts 😉
Thank you for this free pattern! I am new to sewing and your instructions and pictures made it all easy. It came out so well.
Thank you so much! That is very nice to hear! Thanks for using my free patterns!
I love this so adorable too
Thank you so much!
Hi, I’m new to sewing so I hope this is not a silly question.
There is a mark showing 1″
On the cutout for the crotch, there is notches on the 9-12 month area and on the 24 month area.
Do I use the cutout out as it is when I printed it out or do I have to add an inch for each notch if I
am making the 9-12 months or the 24 months sizes?
The 1 inch box or mark is only to check if the cutouts printed correctly. You would use the crotch cutout as is without adding it to it.
You don’t have to add anything. Just use them as they printed out. Just check the 1 inch print scale to make sure it printed correctly.
I’m trying to down load the patterns for the Gigi sun suit
Are you wanting the Maui sunsuit pattern? You could go to page 2 and scroll down to the last picture of the sunsuit. Underneath that picture it says this “Ready to download the templates and chart? Click HERE!” That’s where you would click.
