Glebe Pants: Can't Stop, Won't Stop

 I literally can't stop making pants. Elastic waist pants. 

Why? Well, the comfort factor, for sure. And there's something about the simplicity of sewing them, the repetition, that I'm finding really soothing right now. 

I keep coming back to the Muna and Broad Glebe pants (see my last few pairs here). Two more pairs, both size iii. 

This pair is made from the flax color mid-weight linen from Elizabeth Suzann

This natural color isn't normally one of my neutrals (I usually go for black, olive green or navy) and I'm a little apprehensive about light-colored pants for inexplicable reasons, but I thought I'd give it a try. 

Turns out I looooove them! I think they look pretty great. 

I also made another pair of pajama pants Glebes, from some gorgeous Kaffe Fassett fabric (my mom and I bought it a couple years back; I made her some Free Range Slacks with it). 

The Glebe pajama pants I made last year were a hit and many of my other pajama pants are either too small or threadbare, so this was a very functional project. 

I'm pretty jazzed about them- I love this print and they're so comfy!


  1. I adore your flax coloured pants & have total pant envy (even though I'm also scared of light coloured pants)

  2. I love these. Does your mom wear her Free Range slacks as regular pants? How are they holding up in the quilting cotton? I'm asking because my mother LOVES Kaffe Fasset's work as well. He is a master with color for sure. I want to try the Glebes. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Both look great! I have a beige pair of linen pants similar to yours and wear them all summer!

  4. Very cute. And I like your pattern storage in baskets. I'm gonna have to try that!

  5. Cute! I am determined to make white pants this year!!! Love both pair.

  6. Why would you stop?! You're rocking those pants!! They look so comfy 😍 and I must say that I absolutely love your patterns' basket 😁 I have a similar system, with much less patterns though (still 😛) in my living room! Can't really say that my husband loves it too 😛

  7. They look like one comfy pair of trousers. Jo x

  8. Can you tell me what your white plastic storage for largee-format patterns is called please? I have been searching for something…and don’t live near any stores to go and look…hoping Amazon may have something similar! Thanks!
