Wahoo! It’s pattern release day! And we are coming to you with our first ::new:: pattern for the “Summer of Wovens”!! (Too many exclamation points? Can you tell I’m excited?)
The women’s Linen Loungers are in our full size range, from XXS – Plus3X. They are available in five lengths (shorts with cuffed hem, shorts with curved hem, bermuda, capri and pant), three pocket options (patch, slat and a back patch pocket), two waistbands (woven and yoga) and also offer optional button tabs and a drawstring. The unisex youth Little Loungers are available in sizes 3Month – 14 and cover all of the same options as their women’s counterpart!
What are your fabric options for these pants?
For the shorts length, the sky is pretty much the limit. You can use a more structured woven or something with drape and have your new favorite pair of shorts to wear while taking on your everyday life. For the other lengths, we highly recommend using a woven apparel fabric that has some drape to it like linen, linen blends, rayon, crepe, ect. These Loungers are all a pull-on pant style and drafted looser in the hips for easy on/off, and then taper in at the knee with a slight bootcut flair.
