In Progress: Hot Patterns’ Riviera Hello, Sailor! Pants

My next project is getting come finishing touches. A long-wanted pair of sailor pants.

I just need to sew on these 8 million buttons and maybe switch out my topstitching from cream to gold (to match the anchors and eyelets in the back).



  1. I love, love, love these! I’ve been idly looking for a sailor pants pattern, I will definitely check out this HP one. As usual, your naval stylings are looking beautiful!

  2. I love the buttons! I think I’ll do the Burda Petite ones that just came out. You are on a military style kick lately, I see! Great idea.

  3. I have this pattern, I can’t wait to see yours all done! I think this pattern would make cute shorts too?

  4. ohhhh….can’t wait to see them finished! I bought a Hot patterns pants pattern a few years ago and have never been game to sew them after reading a few negative reviews. Thanks for posting about these and the t-shirts the other day!

  5. I can’t wait to make these myself – I believe I do have a pattern for Hotpatterns Sailor Pants at home – I’m a sucker for sailor pants – yours are gorgeous so far!

  6. Wow! I’m impressed with your productivity! I’m going to have to pull out the HP Riveria blouse and try and match one of the patterns with my fabrics stash. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

  7. Looking awesome! I love those buttons – worth changing the topstitching for!!
