With the UK weather decidedly unseasonably wet and chilly, my Hudson Pants by True Bias have seen an awful lot of wear recently.
They are the first thing I reach for when I get home after work. The fabric Atelier Brunette Twinkle Loop Back Jersey in Navy from Minerva Crafts is the softest perfect weight for these joggers. There is a tiny raised gold dot in the fabric which raises them into something a little smarter.
I put off making them for a long time, thinking the skinny leg silhouette too young for me. But no, they are perfect. My daughter gives them her full approval and I can see several being made up for her start at Uni in September (fingers crossed!!!!).
I made a straight size 4 according too my hip measurement. My waist measurement puts me at a size 6 – 8 but I thought the elasticated waist would deal with that.
They were a quick simple make. I thought sewing the horizontal lines across the thick elastic waist band would be my downfall but the instructions were clear and it was a doddle.
Next time I need to stretch the pocket binding a little to get rid of the slight gape, but I am nit picking here.
I chose to do the pocket lining is in a thin cotton jersey from my stash to reduce bulk in the pockets – a cheeky red cheetah print!
I would definitely purchase this fabric again, despite it’s £22/m cost. These used 1.5m. They feel so luxurious I feel they are worth every penny.
Matching sweatshirt top? Too much? What do you think?
