My next project for the Minerva Maker Team is this incredibly cute and comfy pair of lounge-worthy Moji Pants by Seamwork Patterns. Read the post for all the quick and dirty details!
Hey happy people! Today I’m so excited to share my next project as part of the Minerva Maker team! It’s the Moji Pants pt II: At-Home Edition. I used this gorgeously soft stretch linen viscose to create another pair of the Moji pants (see my first version here) specifically to wear during this season of life when I’m staying home more and looking to keep cozy while I do so. The end result was these adorable jogger-style pant that I immediately became obsessed with!
You can view the entire blog post I did for Minerva site here, but I just wanted to pop in and share a few little details over here as well. I made a couple of adjustments to the pattern, including lengthening the rise and adding elastic to the waistband for an easier fit at my natural waist. I couldn’t be happier with the end result!
QUICK + DIRTY DETAILS:
PATTERN: Moji Pants by Seamwork
SIZE: I made a size 4 which is waaaayyy off based on my measurements! (I’m closer to a 12 for this pattern) This lead to a more fitted silhouette overall. The forgiveness of the fabric helped with the fit A LOT. My measurements:
- B: 38”
- W: 31″
- H: 40″
- Height: 5’4″
- Added 1” elastic to the tie-waistband
- Used sewn button-hole openings for the waist tie as opposed to grommets (as recommended by the pattern)
- Did not sew 2 additional rows of topstitching in waistband to create waist-tie channel in order to leave room for my thicker elastic
- Lengthened rise 3”
