Black Mojito!

Hello my darlings,

Today I bring you my “Black Mojito” pants. This make is based on the stylish Moji pattern, the latest pants pattern from Seamwork founded by Sarai Mitnick, a genius entrepreneur!

If you haven’t heard the recent episodes on Seamwork Radio, you definitely should!

As previously, I modified the pattern following Kathleen Cheetham’s class on Plus Size Pant Fitting.

Pattern modifications:

Based on modifications to my last Sallie and considering that this pattern is wool, these were the pattern modifications I used:

  • 3″ Full hip adjustment
  • 1″ full tummy adjustment
  • 3″ full derrière adjustment (FDA)

I also drafted the pocket to be sewn inside.

Results:

At first, I thought I had over-modified the pattern and the pants had ended up being too loose, but actually, after looking at the pictures, I LOVE it!! ❤

In the pictures above, I’m wearing it with my Gretie’s portrait blouse (unblogged).  It goes well with every top. I have been wearing it a whole lot and I can say it is pretty darn comfortable!!!

This new incursion into pants pattern modifications is giving me the courage to tackle more pants patterns! Yeiiii, pants in my wardrobe!!

How do you like it? Have you made this pattern before? Are you afraid of pants?

That’s it for today folks!

Have a terrific long- “Canadian Thanksgiving” weekend! Thank you for reading!

❤ M

  1. Love both of these Mon! The best part about sewing for yourself is when you figure out how to get the style you want to fit you. And these pants look nice on you and comfy too. Love the Betty Boop top.

  3. Those pants are super cute! I wish I could sew pants, but I tried to make shorts last year and it was a disaster, so now I’m afraid of pants … The Betty Boop top is so cool, by the way!

    1. Hehehe!! It was exactly the same for me. I’m just starting to get more confident with pants. They can be quite tricky! recommend you to check the Craftsy class I talked about in the post. Although the teacher is not too percise, she knows the tricks. It will give you a good idea of what you have to do. Take notes and experment which are the modifications that work best for you.

    I love them! Top and the Moji! I also bought Kathleen Cheetham’s course and now I want to draw my first trousers. I thougt to make pajamas from Moji but it looks like that this is also a fine pattern for outside. Thanks for your inspirations 🙂

  6. I just signed up for that Craftsy class! I’ve watched it through and have been thinking about what pattern to try things out on. Your pants came out really nice! I might have to take a leaf out of your book and try this. I’m always thrilled when I see you’ve updated. It’s so nice to see something on a body similar to mine!

    1. Sweet! It’s a very simple pattern, ideal to try modifications. I actually started with the pants of the Salie jumpsuit and was quite surprised with the results. You may actually want to start with a knit pattern and increase the extensions a little bit when you work with wovens. 😉
      Good luck! 🙂
