Luna Fabric Inspiration

Over the course of the Luna Pantsalong, a bunch sponsors gave us suggestions for what fabrics they would recommend for a pair of Luna Pants. Now that the giveaway contests are all over, I’ve gathered them all into one post here. There are so, so many options; I’m sure these ideas will help you on your way to your next several pairs of Lunas!!

Andrea from Fabricworm recommended some gorgeous organic double gauze fabrics:

Cloud9 Fabrics doesn’t have a retail shop, but you can find their certified organic fabrics in a lot of fabric shops; they have a handy “Where to Buy” right on their website so you can see which stores carry your favorite prints. Here’s what the folks at Cloud9 recommend for Lunas:

Fat Quarter Shop suggested these soft, lightweight Denim Studio denims from Art Gallery Fabrics. I love the simple prints!

Perusing Robert Kaufman Fabrics‘ amazing Instagram feed, I fell in love with a lot of the solids/semi-solids and yarn dyes. These would all sew up into lovely basic garments that you can wear with just about anything. I especially like all the neutral options they offer. Here are some of my picks for Luna Pants from their countless fabric collections:

For today’s fabric inspiration, Karen at Honey Be Good recommends these lovely fabrics for Luna Pants:

As I’ve mentioned before, I love the idea of using knits for Luna and showed my knit pair here! I can’t say enough wonderful things about the Cloud 9 knits (though, obviously, I am biased); they are so soft and are a great medium weight interlock. Double gauze is a favorite pick of mine for these pants, and poplin would work perfectly for a slightly more structured look.

  1. Any chance you can tell me what fabric you used for the pattern listing photo? The jade green with the flowers and small stripe bands? I’ve made two pairs, already, and would love to have some out of that fabric. Thanks for such an awesome pattern!

    • hi Laney – that fabric is from Leah Duncan’s “Meadow” collection for Art Gallery Fabrics.
