I recently found a new pattern, Moon Pants by pattern designer Made By Rae. I have been really looking forward to giving them a go. I had some lightweight chambray fabric left over from my lobster dress, just enough to make a pair for my niece. Ever the ‘waste not, want not’ attitude!
The Moon Pants are a more feminine version of my favourite pattern, Parsley Pants. The construction is very similar but with the addition of the crescent-shaped moon pockets and the cuffs at the hem. I made the option with the flat cuffs over a gathered hem which I prefer over the elastic option.
The flowery fabric on the pocket is a retro 80’s piece I found. That’s the joys of pockets, you can add something really interesting with only a small piece of fabric. I will definitely be making these again!
