The Details

The Luna Lounge set is a collection that has so many garment options included you’re sure to be spoiled for choice.

 

Blouse

 

Luna includes a lightly over-sized button up blouse, with bust darts for shaping – double darts for E+F cups and no darts for A cups. It also features grown-on sleeves which you can keep short or make use of the included long sleeve pattern piece, finished with an elasticated cuff.

The V neckline is finished with a thin facing which I recommend top-stitching to the blouse – it keeps it permanently in place (no flapping facings here!) and gives a casual baseball shirt vibe.

You can then choose to add a gently rounded, floaty back peplum (best suited to lighter weight/floatier fabrics) or use the included plain back version if peplums aren’t really your thing.

The peplum blouse lends itself incredibly well to day-wear; why not crop the length a little (as was done for Annabel’s white blouse where 5cm/2″ was removed from the bottom, along with a button) and pair with jeans and ballet flats…?

 

Pant

 

The Luna Pant is a mid-rise pant with a wide elastic waist band. Two band widths have been included in the pattern, one to suit 38mm (1 1/2″) elastic, and one to suit 50mm (2″) elastic.

The pant includes options for long pants or shorts, and both have pockets included.

AND, the Curve pattern includes an additional back pant pattern piece, just like the Farris Jumpsuit & Playsuit. The Plus back pant is a great option to use if you find you often need more room in the seat: all the work has been done for you, and no extra pattern adjustments are always a winner in my book!

More information on how to choose your back pant pattern piece is included in the Instructions.

 

Skill Level

Luna is suitable for confident seamstresses looking to up-skill, with many possibilities for extending your skillset included.

If you’ve never made a pant or short before, Luna will ease you in nicely. They’re quick to make and easy to fit with their relaxed style and elasticated waistband.

The blouse can be as simple as choosing the short sleeve with the plain back. Or, go a step further and add the back peplum and a long sleeve. You’ll learn about inserting darts and adding buttonholes as well as gathering techniques and top-stitching.

 

Sizing

The Luna Lounge Set includes both the Original and Curve size ranges. The Original includes sizes 6-24 with A to D cup bodices, and the Curve includes sizes 16 to 34 with C to F cup bodices.

 

Plus, Extra Finished Garment Measurements included…

If you’re worried about choosing a size, I’ve also included a whole bunch of additional Finished Garment Measurements, from the standard bust, waist and hips to bicep/hem circumference and back width to crotch curve length.

Simply compare these measurements to a similar garment you already like the fit of (or one you know you’d like to alter) and you’ll be surprised at how much of the hard stuff is already done.

Fabric Options

Luna is suitable for a wide range of light- to medium-weight woven fabrics with some drape.

Cotton lawn, voile and poplin as well as double gauze, sateen and seersucker, are all easy to sew with and wear brilliantly across both the pant and blouse patterns. Rayon, silks, crepes and other slinky fabrics also pair beautifully with all pieces in the Luna collection, as does light-weight linen, tencel & chambray.

Flannel works well for the cooler weather, just keep in mind that the peplum blouse works better in floatier fabrics.

Annabel’s blue floral set is a Japanese double gauze and the white blouse is a cotton jacquard. Jen’s pink Luna set is made up in cotton flannel for the bottoms and a cotton double gauze blouse. The grey gingham blouse is a cotton double cloth.
