New Pattern Release - The Luna Lounge Set

Thursday, August 25, 2022

The Luna Lounge Set, a gently oversized yet dressed-up pyjama set, ready for day or night.

The Luna Lounge Set is here! A collection with so many garment options included, you're sure to be spoiled for choice.

Luna is my take on a PJ/lounge-wear set - it has been designed to take you from day to night with ease, depending on the fabric you use. Flannels and cosy cottons work well for a pyjama-party movie night. But mix chambray shorts with a light double gauze blouse, and a weekend stroll for ice cream or coffee is easily on the cards.

The Luna Lounge Set is available in both the Original and Curve sizes, with A to F cups included, in sizes range from an NZ size 6 to 34.

The Details


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 (there they are again...) 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 version below) and pair jeans and ballet flats...?

Annabel's white Luna blouse has been cropped by 5cm (2") for a more casual, day-wear look. Because of this, the bottom button was removed.

The Details


The Luna Pant is a mid-rise pant with a wide elastic 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 - because you know I would never release a pattern without pockets, right?

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.

Multiple Cup Sizes - A to F

The Luna Lounge Set includes both the Original and Curve sizes, spanning from a 6A cup (bust 75cm or 29 1/2") all the way up to a 34F cup (156.5cm or 61 5/8").

Included in the instructions are a detailed set of Finished Garment Measurements, meaning you're able to compare these to a similar garment that you currently like the fit of, or know you want to adjust. This takes much of the guess work out of making Luna, before you've even cut anything out.

Annabel wear a Curv 24C cups, graded to a 26 waist, and a straight 26 pant. Jen wears a 10C cup graded to a 12 waist and a straight 10 pant - you can read more about us on the pattern listing page.

Skill Level

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

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 long sleeve. You'll learn about inserting darts and adding buttonholes as well as gathering techniques and top-stitching.

Fabric Suggestions

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

Cotton lawn, voile and poplin to 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.
