lounge pants

At this point in pregnancy, I’m very much against wearing real pants. Luckily my real job allows me to work from home where sweatpants are perfectly acceptable. (Though there are those times when I have to leave the house, and lately I’ve come to really resent having to put on jeans!)

My sweet friend, Phiona, knowing this, made me a fabulous pair of pajama/lounge pants recently. They’re super comfortable, with a great smocked waist, and of course, in a great fun fabric!

I wore them for days after receiving them, and then convinced Phiona to let me use her pattern to make up a second pair for a little variety. (Unfortunately, for those who might ask, there’s no pattern at the moment. Phiona created her own pattern based on a pair of her favorite pajamas from Anthropologie)

(31 weeks. Very fashionable, right?!)

Well, now you know what I’ll be sporting all weekend!

    At least they make you comfortable. The fabric is beautiful. In pregnancy to have those 2 combined is rare unless you have unlimited resources. I have never understood why many maternity clothes are so very expensive.

    They’re adorable! I remember that stage in late pregnancy where all I felt like I did all day was hike up my falling-down pants.

    Look at your baby bump! You’re so cute! Those pants look waaaay too comfortable- I think I may need to make some for myself out of soft jersey. What a great friend!

    I’ve just been fiddling about with a pattern to make some post natal lounge pants – I remember wearing the same pair of boring old pyjama pants for days on end at one stage, as nothing else was comfortable!

    Just realised we must be due at exactly the same time – I’m 31 weeks tomorrow :)

    Those are awesome! Your outfit looks just like mine right now only my pants are red and turquoise plaid. And I don’t have a cute baby belly!

    Super adorable and cute! I work from home as well, and am 26 weeks pregnant, so these might be added to the “figure out how to make right away” pile!

    Those look heavenly! I wish I’d had some during my childbearing stage. Not that it was that long ago – I’m thinking I may need some for this “lose the baby weight” stage too.

    Your baby bump looks adorable too :)

    Adorable (and so comfy!). My pregnant sister sure would love me if I made her a pair. Maybe I will try my hand at making a pair :) Thanks for the idea!

    Your trousers look great.
    My under-bump maternity jeans were a godsend until about week 30 when I started to spend too much time pulling them up after my bump had pushed them down (especially after sitting). Now at week 37, I’m living in a pair of cords that make me look like Humpty Dumpty but are the only thing that fit comfortably. It’s too late to start sewing, but if I have another child I shall definitely make lounge pants – in a fine wool or cord I could probably get away with them for work too.

    Okay, I’m not pregnant anymore, but I would totally wear these all the time!

    Amy says:

    I reckon you ask her to make some out of linen or denim (with a cotton waistband) so that you don’t have to put on your jeans! your bump is gorgeous by the way, so very envious of it!

    I’m 31 weeks, too! But you look way more fashionable than I do these days. Even in your super fly lounge pants. :)

    Way to stay comfortable and cute at the same time. Nice to have a little built-in heater for the winter months. How nice that you work from home.

    Hah! My husband was not stoked when I reached the “only-lounge-pants-please” stage. Maybe because I rotated 3 pairs of black leggings (Prudent Advice is coming to mind…) for the last month or so. Next baby, I’ll something fancy like these!

    Those are nicer than the pregnancy “loungey” pants I wore which were just men’s pajama bottoms. I’d make them for me just for around the house pants now!

    jamie says:

    um, perhaps you could convince ms. phiona to make a tutorial or pattern. i’m 30 weeks along myself and those pants look sooo wonderfully comfortable! i would never have thought to put smocking & lounge pants together. love it!
