The Morocco Pant and Shorts ... 


When I first designed the Morocco pants and shorts I kept calling them the tuxedo pants. And when it came to choosing a name I did a little research, I would have loved to have called them "le Smocking" after Yves St-Laurent famous Tuxedo suit for woman, but that was a little inappropriate for children. So then I tried to find the first woman to wear a tuxedo suit. It turned out that one of the first was Marlene Dietrich in her first American movie "Morocco". Since I am of Moroccan descendants and I lived there as a child, it was a giving that that would be what I would call this pattern! So now you know!

 Once the name is picked out and the pattern is graded, it needs to be tested and really this is probably the most important step of the entire process- without all these wonderful woman trying out the pattern and finding all the typos, missed notches, wrong lengths and fit, the end result would be entirely different. So today I wanted to show you all the wonderful version my testers made and give you an idea how versatile this pattern can be.  From basic to crazy and wild! Perfect for boys and girls alike.  I hope you will check out these lovely ladies blogs, you can read what they have to say about the pattern and also discover all the other wonderful sewing they've been up to!

Also, the Morocco will be 20% until Saturday July 11th and will go back to it's regular price of 10$- so grab your copy now!
