Hello!! I hope that, for those of you who celebrated, you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends, family, gratitude and food! I’ve been enjoying a bit of a break from sewing and blogging recently, but I’m here today with a long overdue Miss Matatabi Makers project!
But after I cut out my own pants from the fabric, I realized I had enough to make little sweatpants for both of my girls! I couldn’t resist.
I talk a lot more in depth about the fabric in my post over on Frances’ blog, but it’s shiny, cozy and on sale, so I’m not sure what else I need to say :P
I wanted to mimic the general shape of the Hudson Pants, but didn’t want to spend a lot of time drafting or altering a pattern, so these are super simple. I’d recently made both girls pairs of pants from the Oliver + S Playtime Leggings pattern, so I started with that as a base and made some easy adjustments. I added cuffs and a waistband and then some width/ease around the top half to make them a little looser in fit. No pockets or drawstring. It wasn’t a perfect science, more like some fun experimenting. They aren’t perfect, but they’ll do!
The girls are super obsessed with these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle drink bottles they have. They did not want to let them go.
After I made these, I heard that True Bias is about to release a Mini Hudson Pant pattern for kids!! So if you’re looking to make a pair of comfy but cute knit pants for your kid, look out for that release in a few days!
Uhh . . . can I have my drink back?
So now the three of us have some snazzy matching metallic sweatpants! Haha, super dorky, I know!
So be sure to check out all the details of MY Metallic French Terry Hudson Pants on the Miss Matatabi blog. And don’t miss the Black Friday sale going on at the Miss Matatabi shop! And then go and have yourself a wonderful weekend!!
