Noa pants from Compagnie M



Today, Compagnie M * has launched a new pattern, and with it, she also launched a new line of patterns. The Noa* pants is the first pattern in her new Special Basics line, a line without tons of options but with a true Compagnie M stamp. The Special Basics will only be available as pdf's and will cost just 5 euro's. The new Noa definitely fits the "Special" label and considering my son has requested a few more, they will probably indeed become a "Basic" in his wardrobe.



Let's start with those pockets, because I know they were the first thing that grabbed your attention. The fold over pockets are amazing, and scream Compagnie M. I love the color blocking options the provide. You could use one type of fabric, giving the pants some subtle details, but you can also play with three different visible fabrics.The pockets are great for using treasured fabric scraps. The space ships fabric was a scrap from making this Theo.



You will have to cut eleven fabric pieces, but the pants sew up quickly. No zippers, no button holes even no snaps. My son loves how easily they come on and off. With his usual trousers he  tries to avoid opening his button and zip, so I could not make him happier than with this type of pants. The trousers are comfy, but they look like real trousers, so me and him are very happy with them. We also tested the trousers on playability, as you can see his bottom stays covered even in the most demanding position.



The pattern is originally designed for woven fabrics, but fabrics with a bit of stretch will also work. The main fabric I used was just 2.50 euro per meter. I bought four meters because my son requested a bed tent (basically a curtain with window and door). After buying the fabric I realized three meter would have been enough as well. The fabric is relatively sturdy, canvas like, so perfect for pants. The rust colored uni fabric, I bought at de Stoffen Madam during our sewing weekend reunion two weeks ago.



I mentioned a few times already that my son is my most complicated model. This time I decided to make the shoot extra special and I think it worked. We cycled around the neighbourhood, searching for a nice location in the shade. We ended up making pics in the tower of a petting zoo and I think he had fun. I did not take a bag with me, so I actually put my keys in his pockets, which explains why his hands are not as deep in them as they could be. Let's hope he will be as cooperative in the future because I already cut the next Noa pair, a air of shorts. The pattern is available in two lengths, so perfect whole year round.


Get your Noa* in the Compagnie M webshop. Due to the release there is a discount of 10% on the already low price of 5 euro's. The code for the discount is "noa10" and it is viable until the 19th of June. The pattern is available both in Dutch and English.

Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian). If you buy anything through my affiliate links (*), I get a small commission (the price stays the same for you), I am very grateful for everything that feeds my fabric addiction.

    1. Bij de nieuwste broek kreeg ik een shortje uit een super klein lapje geperst, maar ik moest wel een extra zoom maken ;)

    1. Ik ook, voor meisjes is een enkel elastiekje ook een optie, ideaal kan hij net iets groter, gaat hij langer mee.
