I’m slowly starting to put together my Fall wardrobe. I’ve been sewing a whole bunch for myself and the kids. I think I have a clearer vision of what I want and what I like which really helps my focus and determination. I don’t know if I’ll get it all done, but I think I started early enough to get the bulk of it done. Luckily, the kids don’t need a whole lot and I mostly need layers and warm items. Anyway, I finished a quilted vest and some more Hudson pants. (I’m also wearing my polka dot Union St. Tee (affiliate link) that I cut the sleeves off, so I’ve been wearing it all summer.)
I’ve been wearing these pants a ton already. I love them, and I love an extra day of not shaving. I love the Hudson pants pattern. I made these out of a slightly striped interlock fabric and black rib knit for all the details. I was worried that the fabric had too much brown color in it, but my sister and these pictures confirm that they are gray. They are a great basic comfortable pants. I love wearing the comfort of pajamas but looking like I actually tried to get ready.
I had a hard time deciding on the lining. I wanted to do a flannel lining to give it extra warmth. I was going to do some boring lining, but I LOVE this little town flannel fabric. It was also a remnant, and I’ve been saving it for Claire. But I love it and decided to use it for myself. It makes me happy every time I see it, and it’ll make me happy every time I wear it. The lining is so cute! I’m excited to accessorize with it all winter!
