We decided a little more time needed to be spend focusing on the Morocco Pants! This is such a delightful pattern, and it’s not been available to purchase for some time, but now you can get it in the Project Run & Play shop!
We sewed three pairs of Morocco Pants for our 1 year old baby boy capsule wardrobe. He’s been wearing these constantly, and they’re such a great pattern! We sewed the faux fly version, but you can also make a zipper fly.
The Morocco Pants and Shorts pattern can be made in sizes 2 – 12. We sewed a size 2 for Baby, and although you can see we rolled the cuffs for these photos about a month ago, we’re not rolling them anymore. Uh-oh! For this cuter than ever pair we used mustard rayon/linen blend fabric and it’s our favorite of the three pairs. We think!
One really awesome and practical feature of the Morocco Pants is the elastic back option. For a baby in diapers, this really is the most practical version. However, for older boys, there are these super fun back welt pockets with a flap, or double welt pockets or a faux flap only. Instead of an elasticated back waist, darts can be sewn for a cleaner look with the pockets.
Of course that tuxedo stripe is sort of the signature feature of the Morocco Pants and Shorts Pattern! It’s really easy to sew (the illustrations show you exactly what to do) and makes such a big statement. For these we used chocolate brown twill fabric with a khaki fabric stripe. His sisters lovingly call these his “park ranger” pants and dress him in them as often as they can!
We dug through our button stash to find exactly the perfect buttons for each pair of Morocco Pants. And as you can see, we added belt loops on the middle pair just because they look so cute, not because they’re ever used.
This is a plain khaki pair that Baby is wearing with a Thyme shirt (pattern from Project Run & Play) in khaki fabric. Basically the quintessential pair of baby pants! By the way, did you see that Project Run & Play is having an amazing giveaway during their Back to Learning event? One person will get their patterns for free! Go check it out.
We ended up hemming the bottom of these Morocco Pants, but the pattern also has the option to use hem facings for a very fashionable look. Overall, we’re in love with this new unisex pattern and we can’t wait to sew up a whole bunch more Morocco Pants! As you can see with the few pairs we sewed above, there are so many options in the pattern that you just might not need any other pants pattern! 😉
