MC2 Harem pants playtime


That look on my face…I love the MC2 sarouel Afghan harem pants!

I’ve made four to date, 2 for me (earlier post here), 2 for Ashley. And I plan to make more. NOTHING in my closet is more comfortable or more fun than these britches.

This is a great pattern I found this year (here):


More pics!


My fabric is a cotton/poly French terry from FabricMart. I love it! It’s lightweight and feels great. I checked, it’s not available at the moment, but their inventory changes so quickly – I check them out every morning…


Cute! and here’s a pic with my self-drafted sharkbite hem knit topper:


I wore this on my evening walk a couple days ago, and a gal and her dog stopped and simply said, ‘that outfit’. That felt good!

mc2 Classy Harem Pants


Yes, I’m still working on sarouel pants!

Encouraged by my first pair (here), but discouraged by the ‘diaper’ effect of my own drafting, I kept looking for a pattern. And look what I found!


mc2 patterns are entirely new to me. These pants are so much fun!! I’ve tried to show the inseam and so on, so more sewing room antics ahead..



Sewing notes:

  • I drafted size Small and made no changes to the pattern, other than to take 1 5/8″ off at the top before adding the waistband.
  • The pattern suggests about 1.5 yd of fabric, but that is based on the layout below. I used 2 yards because I like to cut all my pieces in the same direction. BTW, I also cut out the size XL in about the same yardage.

layout for 52 inches

They do make me feeling like dancing. They’re great!
