Sew Long Summer Blog Tour – Luna Pants + Giveaway

I am excited to be joining in with the Sew Long Summer Blog Tour hosted by Mahlicadesigns.  There is a whole bunch of bloggers joining in, a rafflecopter giveaway and discount codes from our sponsors.  All the links are at the bottom of this post! I have chosen to make the Luna Pants by Made by Rae.

Summer is on it’s way out in most places making the Luna Pants from Made by Rae the perfect choice for this tour.  This is my second pair of Luna Pants, and since I wear the first pair (Link here if you want to check them out) so much I thought I could definitely use another.  The Luna Pants are great for the changing weather due to the lightweight woven fabric they are perfect for cooler evenings and milder days.

OK I’ll admit it’s actually just spring here in New Zealand!  BUT really the weather is still perfect for the Luna Pants.  It is slowly starting to warm up and I love the feel of the lightweight woven fabric, makes a nice change from jeans and knit fabrics.

The fabric I have used is a lightweight cotton blend with a sateen like finish, which gives the pants a slight shimmer.  This fabric was kindly given to me, so I can’t be exactly sure what it is.  I love the print and it is nice to wear a lighter colour for a change.  The Luna Pants are nice and easy to construct and I love having the practicality of the pockets.  These would make a great addition to any autumn or spring wardrobe!

    1. Hi Crystal, they are very comfortable I haven’t worn lightweight woven pants in years thinking they wouldn’t be! They are going to be great for that ‘in between’ weather.

  1. Those trousers look so comfy and yet they still look formal enough to wear for a nice day out. I’m expecting to see plenty more of these popping up by the time autumn actually gets to you!

    1. Me too Melissa, I was weary at first…but then I got so many compliments on the first pair I thought it can’t be too bad! I make the elastic in the waistband well larger than suggested, can’t stand them digging in giving that lovely muffin top look. Other than that they are very forgiving and that is partly why I am drawn to the prints too…camouflage 🙂
