Aztec Lounge Pants


I’m so excited to join in Riley Blake’s Back to School Blog Tour! We sure love that we get to work with such an amazing company.


For my Back to School project I choose to make some cute lounge pants for my daughter. I wanted to use a soft knit and once I saw this fun aztec print from Carley Griffith I had to have it.


First off, I have to say that I am NOT a pattern designer–YET. So I went in search of the best pattern I could find that that happened to be these Lazy Days Lounge Pants from Gracious Threads found on etsy.

I’m not going to go into deep detail in this post because I purchased this pattern and would encourage you to do the same if you’d like to make these pants. Well worth the $7.50 since you can make pants for sizes 2T-12 with this one pattern. (I might try to even make me a pair.)


Let’s talk about this amazing fabric. Riley Blake makes amazing and high quality knit. Not that flimsy stuff you can get at some stores. This is the good knit. And the fabric designs are so beautiful.


I made these pants in one afternoon and only had to unpick once. That’s like a record for me.


And now my oldest has a comfy pair of Aztec Lounge Pants to sport around.


She honestly wouldn’t take them off.

  1. These are awesome! Do you sew your knits with a serger or a regular machine? I have not had perfect success trying knits and have never tried a serger. Any tips?
