These new woven pants are the latest patterns from Patterns for Pirates! The women’s version are the Linen Loungers, and there is a unisex version for children called the Little Loungers πŸ™‚ I only made shorts versions of both of these patterns, though, because, HOT.

There are so many options, as usual, and you can also pick your favorite finishes, since they include the “quick and dirty” methods, and the more neat methods. Personally, I go for quick, because I just want to sew more more more!

This comes in short, bermuda, capri, and pant lengths. The shorts options include a cuffed hem, or a curved hem. There are 2 front pocket options, or leave them off. And a back patch pocket.

I love the comfort of these. They call for a fabric with some drape, but the shorts versions can be made with something more stable. The yoga waistband version whips up SO quickly, and then I also made one with an elastic waist, and they were pretty much just as quick! My daughters also got some shorts, I haven’t photographed all of them yet!

You can check out the listing to see photos of them on all kinds of amazing women! And they will be on sale during the release πŸ™‚

My fun printed shorts are made from rayon challis from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I added 1 yard of this to my order sometime last fall, and it was sitting around waiting for the right project until now. This was a one yard wonder, because I carefully cut out these shorts, with just a tiny scrap of that yard to spare πŸ™‚ These are the cuffed hem shorts, I left the cuff down, instead of tacking it up, because the fabric wouldn’t stay up very well, and to keep the inseam a little longer. I made a tiny change to the pocket installation. The pattern has you bind the edge of the pocket, but I just sewed it to the front shorts, turned it over and topstitched. Easy hack.

The black shirt here is a short sleeve Sweet Tee. I have a hard time nailing myself down, but it might be my favorite P4P top pattern ever. So fast, and I feel like it’s so flattering and comfortable.

The green shorts are an upcycle from another homemade garment handed down to me from a friend, so I really have no clue what the fabric content is. It is a lightweight woven, and I was afraid it might even be too sheer for these, but it’s completely fine on.

These can be a year round staple! I am personally excited to have some comfy printed shorts, and my daughter is excited to match with mommy!
