Girls Luna Loungewear + My Fabric Designs

Check out the girls version of the Luna Loungewear pattern by Love Notions. Bella likes her set as much as I like mine!

Luna Loungewear pattern for girls, by Love Notions

This is the size 14 tester version, and the straps have now been moved in slightly for a perfect fit. I know the fit is perfect because this girl ^ had me sew a couple more tanks for school. They’re in the laundry basket every time I try to get photos.

The similar RTW tank tops she wears are $10 when I catch them on sale, eek. It’s the built in shelf bra feature that she loves. I’m infinitely relieved I have a new go-to pattern, because her tanks are in heavy rotation.

 

Luna Loungewear, Love Notions Patterns

I’m an affiliate for Love Notions Patterns. When I showed you my women’s Luna Loungewear set, several of you bought the pattern from my link in the post. I received a commission for those purchases, and I wanted to say thank you. You got a great pattern, and helped me maintain this blog.

I’ll link this pattern at the bottom of the post, in case you want to buy it. (I think you do.)

I used cotton slinky knit from My Fabric Designs. The cotton slinky knit is lighter than their interlock, and has 6% spandex for a lot more stretch. It’s perfect for Luna Loungewear. I love that I can shop prints or design my own fabric; then choose between 26 different types of fabric. If you shop there, I highly recommend getting a swatch book. It makes planning a sewing project so easy.

Since I told you how great this pattern is in a previous post, I really have to show off my coverstitch work. I haven’t tried all the things my machine can do yet, but I’m getting the hang of the basics. It was tricky to cleanly start and stop the stitch work on the faux fly. (I had to rip it out once.)

As for the construction, I prefer the self binding straps option on this tank over the fold over elastic I used for mine. It’s nice and clean, wears well, and was easier than I thought.

I used a piece of crochet lace for the drawstring until I find some cording. I attached the two lace ends to a piece of skinny elastic in back. The elastic doesn’t show, but it helps relieve some stress on my button holes for now. The lace looks cute, but it’s not ideal.

The buttonholes use a piece of interfacing to stabilize the button hole, and it’s a great design feature. A fun color drawstring with matching coverstitching is Bella’s latest request.

    Beautifully done! You are so good at sewing with knits! Maybe you can do a cover stitching tutorial. I have so much trouble figuring mine out. I really love this print, too. Did you design it?

      No, this is an exclusive from MFD. I’m not confident enough to do any tutorials yet. Which machine do you have?
