My favorite kind of sewing project . . . quick, easy, satisfying, a chance to work with a really great fabric, and the end product fits well and is something I’ll wear all the time!
Pattern: Hudson Pants by True Bias
Fabric: Speckle Cotton Jersey by Robert Kaufman – 2 yards of color Natural
I used a jersey sewing machine needle and an overlock / stretch stitch, and had no problem at all working with the jersey fabric. I thought the size I chose might be a little big, but it was spot-on. The only mistake I made was making the elastic in the waistband a little long – I can compensate for it by tugging the pull ties tight, but it would have been better to have the elastic just a little bit tighter.
I love the pocket detail – and they’re positioned perfectly, just where you want to put your hands. The 2″ elastic waistband is also nice, and I appreciate the finishing details that ensure it won’t roll and will stay well-anchored in place.
I think this entire project took me about three hours, start to finish – I would definitely make another pair!
