Cat in the Hat goes into Space!

I’ve been nose down at Doris and Dotty ( the overlocker and sewing machine, for those of you not in the know) and have whipped up heaps of new trousers this week.

I’ve got pocket ones, frilly ones and even shark ones, but my faves at the moment are the rocket pants…

Winter is Fancy Pants Time

The cold weather is slowly sneaking up on us here in New Zealand, and whilst a few hardy folk will steel themselves and wear jandals right through to next summer, for most of us the dark nights herald thermal vests, warm cardigans and long trousers.

This is good news for mooandflo, because I love making exciting trousers, fancy pants, and loony longs!  There’s nothing better than sewing fun pockets  or kooky frills onto a seemingly normal pair of denims or cords, transforming them into something that raises a smile and brings a bit of yippeeee into our lives.

With this in mind, I’ve embarked on a range of fun Carnival Pants with lovely flounces and frills around the bottom, invoking a bit of Brazil, a warmer climate, and a whole lot of dancing and fun.

This is just a little sample of the trousers that will be coming up, so keep popping back and what on earth I’ll come up with next!

Until then, Ay Carumba!

Top Trousers and Party Pants

I am making children’s trousers today, in all manner of fabrics, huge pockets, and frills.  Kids love bold trousers, big pockets for toys and a bit of joy in their clothing, and who can go wrong with clients like that?  What fun!

Anyway, there I was in trouser mode and so I thought I’d have a little look at what kinds of crazy trousers there are out there already it the loony world of the web, and boy oh boy, I found some doozies.

These dotty numbers are apparently all the rage for golfing in, although I’m not sure any of my golfing mates will be strutting around the links in them any time soon.  Well, not sober, anyway.  Would you wear them?

I’m thinking they’d be great for skiing or hiking in remote places, because there is no way on earth you’d be missed by the rescue helicopters if you were wearing those.  Maybe it’s a marketing strategy the makers need to investigate.

If spots and dots are not your thing, what about these fabulous trou’, called the Shagadelics?

Now, again, I don’t know any men that would wear these (or do I?) but I am quite sure at least two or three of my girlfriends would totally rock those babies.  You know who you are.

And if I had my 25 year old legs and not these ‘ah-hem-ty’-five’ year old ones, I’d even wear them myself.  As it is, my thighs are so wide that if I wore them now I’d look like a single bed, possibly a double.  Still, one can dream.

Yeah baby.

For those brave, nay crazy souls, with great legs, what about a pair of harem pants to show off your tanned pins?  I think they could really catch on in rural New Zealand.  I wonder if we could get male farmers into them in the summer weather – they’d give sun cover (slip, slap,slop) and let the air in all at once – surely the perfect outdoor work trouser?

No?  Sheesh you are just no fun at all today!

Okay, then I will leave you with THE best trousers in the whole wide world – the only pair that matter, and the pair anyone who is anyone at all should have:
