Part of the fun of making a new pattern is pushing the envelope with fabric choices to see how versatile it can be. Originally I envisioned more flowy, lightweight fabrics for my most recent pattern — Moon Pants — but it works surprisingly well when sewn up in a sweatshirt fleece, as you can see. I’d say it’s a win. They’re baggy sweats, to be sure, but I think they’re pretty cute, don’t you?
It might seem somewhat unseasonal to post sweatpants in May, but the weather here in Michigan has been so. crazy…cold one day, hot the next. Case in point: yesterday it was 80, and today it’s 50. So these are very much in Clementine’s wardrobe rotation yet, and if this summer is anything like last summer they will get a ton of use. I also made a pair for Elliot in solid sweatshirt fleece (without the moon pockets, but with a drawstring). More on that soon I hope!
