cropped hudson pant

aaaand i’m back with more self sewing!  pattern testing this time, for my friend Kelli of True Bias.  I’m a big fan of Kelli’s – i was fortunate to have her as a guest for vintage may this year, and my intro for her links to my many favorite past Kelli projects.  she has a comfortable yet fashionable style that i enjoy very much, so when she asked if i’d test her hudson pant pattern, i was totally in.
