went and made myself some more comfy pants.
i bought this fabric right after i made my first pair of True Bias Hudson Pants (and even mentioned it in my blog post). it took me way too long to get around to sewing them – August, finally – and then of course didn’t get photos until now. it’s been bugging me, because i’ve really wanted to share them! i just LOVE these pants.
the fabric is french terry from Mill End. it’s lightweight and oatmeal-ish in color – insanely soft and comfortable but without much stretch so it doesn’t hold its shape very well with wear. gets a bit saggy around the knees and backside, ya know. oh well, i don’t care, because these pants are a perfect match for all sorts of casual activities like drinking coffee and morning bike rides and weekend trips to the playground and late night sewing and eventually…sleeping.
i’ve shrunk a bit over the past few months on account of all the nursing and a weekly game of futsal, so i sized down to a 6 versus the 8 on my cropped pair. i also made the full length version this time to switch it up. i was totally lazy and just trimmed my tester pattern pieces, and something must’ve gone awry around the calf area; the lower legs ended up a bit skinnier than they should be. still wearable though, as they have been worn VERY MUCH TIMES.
anyway, if the fall weather has you craving some cozy lounge pants of your own, you should probably go ahead and make some hudson pants. just a warning though…you’ll never want to take them off.
