Simplicity Cargo Pants S5102 - A Little Challenge Among Friends

  • Fabric Selected CHECK
  • Pattern View Selected CHECK
  • Friend To Sew The Challenge CHECK
  • More Friends Can Join The Challenge _________________
Rhonda and I liked the Mood inspiration pants so much, we decided to do a little cargo pant challenge.   The pattern that we will use is Simplicity S5102.  It's out of print, but is still selling at some online pattern site.  If you like, you may join us.  Again, this is something that we thought to do for fun.

Our little challenge includes four cargo projects:  three pants and one skirt.  Each Friday (beginning July 5th), we will do a blog post featuring the finished project. The post will include a review of the pattern and the sewing process.   And of course some pictures of the finished project.  
  • Week 1 - Any cargo pants view of Simplicity 5102.
  • Week 2 - Use any cargo pants view and add some detail that you like.  For example, the lower leg zipper up the front of the inspiration pair above.  Really it can be from a inspiration photo or a pair of pants that you already own
  • Week 3 - Another view of the cargo pants.  Again, something special that suits your own personal taste and style.
  • Week 4 - Make a cargo skirt view of Simplicity 5102.
So we will have four weeks of showcasing our cargo projects.  Rhonda and I will also post on Instagram and in some Facebook sewing groups. Those posts will include the #sewcargocrazy and #sewcargo.  Please join us if you like.  It will be fun. 

Happy Sewing!


  1. FUN!!! I can't wait to see it play out!

  2. This looks great! I am a fan of cargo pants, and can't wait to see what you come up with! I would join, but I am SO behind on what I already started, lol! But I will be taking notes for when I cut mine out.

    1. Thanks, Vanessa. It will be fun. I do understand. It's a challenge for me to stick to sew challenges. But we will see how it goes. Thanks again. C

  3. Nice challenge! Does it have to be that pattern or any cargo pattern for pants / skirts will do?


    1. Hi Kate, thanks for your interest. I guess you can use other patterns. But follow the general outline in the post. Thanks again
