Hi everybody,

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I have been self isolating this week which means I have been living in loungewear! My go-to lockdown outfit choices have consisted of many different me-made loungewear sewing patterns such as Closet Core’s Plateau Joggers, The Avid Seamstress Pyjama Bottoms and my trusty Tilly & The Buttons Billie Jumper, but today I thought I would share with you my most favourite loungewear pattern of them all: The Luna Pants by Made By Rae.

There’s nothing I love more than when comfort meets style, and that’s exactly what these Luna Pants are – the most comfortable yet stylish lounge pants I have ever made! Featuring inseam pockets (we all love a garment with pockets!), a tapered leg, and a facing waistband, The Luna Pants are made up of just 4 pattern pieces and are wonderfully quick and easy make that can be completed in an afternoon. What’s not to love about that?

One of my favourite things about the Luna Pants is how many different fabrics you can use to create this wonderful sewing project – you aren’t just limited to woven fabrics, as you can also use stable knits such as jersey or interlock too.

For this particular pair of Luna Pants (I have many more on the “Things To Sew” list!), I decided to use this stunning Atelier Brunette Viscose in the colour Canopy Ochre. Be warned that this fabric does shrink a little after it’s first wash, so do remember to pop it in the washing machine before starting your sewing project. The fabric has a really lovely drape to it and best of all, it is Standard 100 Oeko-Tek certified – perfect!

The instructions for The Luna Pants are presented in a beautiful booklet which is very easy to follow. This is a great sewing pattern for beginners and even ideal for those of you who are more experienced sewers looking for a quick and easy make.

If you haven’t already made a pair of Luna Pants, I highly recommend doing so – not only are they the perfect loungewear pants, they’ll also make the most amazing beach companion for the summer or your go-to garment for a casual event such as lunch out with friends or a trip to the shops.

Depending on how you style your Luna Pants, they can be worn to a number of occasions – say hello to your new wardrobe staple that you will want to wear time and time again!

Stay safe and happy sewing.
