These fun and playful pants are a must-have for any modern child’s wardrobe! With a roomy fit and fresh silhouette, they’re both comfortable and stylish. Moon Pants are quick and easy to sew, featuring a basic elastic waistband and elastic cuffs, with extra options including crescent moon-shaped pockets and a flat cuff over a gathered hem.
Moon Pants work great in light or flowy woven fabrics as a harem-style pant for the warmer months. In cooler weather, Moon Pants make a perfect pair of sweats or knit pants when sewn out of heavier knits.
View A of this pattern is appropriate for beginners, while View B falls into the "intermediate" category. If you're new to sewing, start with View A, then challenge yourself with flat cuffs and pockets on your next pair!
