I saw this back at Christmas when families were getting their kids photos taken. Sisters would be wearing matching outfits that were either a top and bottom or a one-piece jumpsuit, I'm not sure which. But here's the reason I'm asking - both the long sleeves and the pant legs ended with a large ruffle or bell-bottom shape.

Some of the more colorful outfits looked almost like a clown costume - of course I never said that out loud. Now, someone I know wants one of these outfits and I don't know what exactly to look for. There may not be a single, specific name for these, but can anyone help?

I don't know the name of the style, but that sort of clothing was popular in the eighties. Even grown women wore those things (on purpose) (I am not kidding). If you type in child jumpsuit on eBay I think you will find what you are describing.

Gosh, I thought Amy Butler had a pattern for these pants. I went to Etsy.com and put in girls ruffle pants and a bunch came up. They are very cute!

With lace collars, even.

I think maybe McCalls patterns with Laura Ashley Licensing on them for kids and grown up had some of that stuff back then. Often shown on pattern envelope in some huge cabbage rose kind of printed fabric. Not admitting I ever wore any of that stuff though

Martha Pullen Company had a pattern for a jumpsuit back in the 80's. It was easy to sew and came in both misses and children's sizes. I made quite a few for myself, daughters and granddaughters. They were sometimes made from a large floral fabric and were part of her classic clothing pattern line. I think some of the mainstream pattern companies had similar ones. A black background fabric with large roses paired with a white blouse with full sleeves and round collar was typical.

Back in mid to late 60's my sewing mom had me in style using yellow fabric with blue polka dots. She may have been a bit embarrassed around her friends but I was really stylin'. She made a deep ruffle just below my elbow and another below my knee to floor length. Later the style added ruffles to jeans. In the 80's my daughter wanted a shorter ruffle sewn on tops and pants. She know avoids them like the plague! But I find them cute.
