Moon Pants Sewing Pattern update

Every time we work on a new pattern I think “That one won’t take long!” and then…it always does. Every time. Not for any particular reason, though the fact that Elli and I both had babies last year and so now we each only work about 10 hours a week is probably the biggest factor. A ton of tiny details go into making a good sewing pattern, even a simple one, so it always ends up looking easier than it is. So as a way of updating you on our progress, I thought I’d post a bunch of photos of our almost-here-Moon-Pants! Here’s Clementine in her Moon Pants with a couple of different Flashback Tees:

I bribed Clementine with a lollipop last weekend to get her to pose for the camera in her moon pants again (see Stylo posts 1 / 2 / 3) and she really rocked it. She went all out. It definitely helped that I put Let It Go on the stereo full blast. And even though I told her she only needed to wear them with t-shirts (so the waistband would be easily visible in the photos), she insisted on putting on ALL THE OUTFITS, including the Pierrot and Charlie Tunics that match. Which is of course in my head is how I always imagine they will be worn, like a fun complementary mix-and-matchy wardrobe. So there was this outfit:

I love these pants paired with sandals for spring or summer. And red is always fun, especially when it doesn’t exactly match.

When will the pattern be ready? Elli is almost finished with the final layout and I’ve just finished sewing the final check-everything-over samples (here’s a peek at one in voile), so I’m shooting for an April 1 launch. Cross your fingers and your eyeballs and maybe it will be even sooner! And now I’m sad that I didn’t include a photo of Clementine with her eyes crossed, because whenever a camera is aimed at Clementine there is ALWAYS a photo of her with her eyes crossed. I want to hit POST instead of going and looking for one, so you’ll just have to wait. OH WEELLLL!!!

  1. Oh they are so cute! and so is Clementine!! always love the huge amount of thought and time you put into your patterns. 🙂

  2. Ha! Yes! I found myself nodding at the first paragraph. I totally do the same thing. Somehow it seems like a pattern will go together in 3 weeks and it always takes like 3 months…

  3. i want moon pants for me! But i guess i might also like a cutie waist like miss clementine…and that probably wont happen by april 1!!! Shes a doll and im gonna check with my 6y.o. To see if she would like a pair of these 🙂

  4. I absolutely LOVE these. Desperately hoping the pattern will go big enough for an 11 year old. And also, please, please, please could you tell me what that gorgeous fabric is in the first photos?? x

  5. These are absolutely adorable! Would love to make them for some upcoming bday presents. Can you please share what the fabric is in the first few photos? Thanks so much!

  6. They are AWESOME! So fun, and really cute with t-shirts and the tunics. My oldest would seriously love these- she’s starting to hate leggings or anything clingy.

  7. Do these fit at regular waist or low rise? My kids HATE low rise, and I had to adapt Geranium pants to work for them. I love the pattern though, so if regular waist I’ll be buying/making!
