I talk about how I’m only sewing with certain colors all the time, but for this project I decided to break that rule. I only decided to break that rule because I’m always dreaming about floral joggers, and good floral fabric is hard to come by at a good price. I have a friend that runs a manufacturing warehouse and sells me some of his remnants for cheap. I saw this fabric there, and when I saw it close up I wasn’t interested. When I was walking away the colors got better from far away so I decided to buy it. I don’t know exactly what it is. It has only a small amount of stretch, it looks like a jersey from the back, but the front looks like a crepe fabric. It’s fairly thin and has pretty good drape.
I used the Hudson Pants pattern. (I’ve used this pattern over ten times.) I made a size 2, and I lengthened the legs by 4″. I also straightened the hip curve from waist to the bottom of the pocket. I really need to go in and fix the front crotch curve so there’s a little less fabric there. Besides that, I made the pattern as instructed. They come together so quickly; I think that’s my favorite thing about this pattern. I can cut them out and finish them in a day even with young children around and needing things.
I’m wearing my Maker tee using this maker tee fabric and these Converse Shoreline slip-on shoe (affiliate link) in gray and white.
And here’s a quick movie to see the pants moving. And I have a great dance move at the end.
