Hosh pants

I cannot declare the season of cool pants open and not make more cool pants.

The cool factor of Hosh pants by Emmyloubeedoo is right up there. Agree?

I really love these pants, but was hesitant to make a pair for Little Monkey as I was worried they might look ridiculous on my skinny model. However after I saw the Hosh pants my blogging friend Carolina made for her girl I decided I had to give it a go.

So, While she was sleeping, I made a pair of Hosh pants for my Little Monkey.


She was not in the mood for photos!


No, she is not turning around so that I could photograph the back of the pants. She is turning away from the camera. What can I say? Being a daughter of a sewing blogger must be a tough gig.

Back to the pants though. I bought this brightly coloured stretch cotton sateen from my local Spotlight. Hosh pants provide a great opportunity to showcase cool prints as there are no side seams.


I feel I got a little out of my comfort zone making such bright pants, but I enjoyed the feeling! The pattern consists of only for pieces and it doesn't take long to put a pair of cool pants together at all! It helps when a pattern is accompanied by clear instructions.


Oh well, Little Monkey did not enjoy being photographed in her new cool pants, but she did enjoy wearing them!


My local Spotlight has more fun prints in their cotton sateen range, so I might just have to make a few more pairs of cool Hosh pants for Little Monkey.

  2. Very cool pants and fabric- this looks like a great pattern. I was just thinking about getting the Lovely Rita Skinnies pattern from Shwin, but I think these look great, so I might have to try Hosh pants instead :)

    1. I am absolutely in love with this pattern now. The pats have the comfort level of leggings because they stretch. Yet they look so.much.cooler. than leggings. I was a little concerned about a roomy bottom at first, but LM seemed comfy playing. The pants just moved with her.

  7. It has such an Indian/Bollywood feel to these, don't you think? It's almost not fair that you are as good at sewing pants as you are at sewing dresses!!

    1. Thank you :) "Not in the mood' is even more frustrating when two days later she asks daddy to take pics of her after she pigged out on ships, there is tomato sauce all over her and she smiles and says, "Cheese!"
