This little guy is always asking for me to sew him up new clothes. He loves wearing mama-made but I think he’s really in it for the photo shoot bribes! I’ll take it though because there’s nothing I love more than looking at that smiling face!
He has a severe hatred of ‘hard pants’ aka jeans. To satisfy both of us, I’ll happily sew up some slim fitting joggers. They’re a quick sew and I love how they look on him!
I have several jogger patterns I like and for these I used the Mini Hudson Pants from True Bias. I love the fit of these and it was a great twist of fate that I already had a size 7 traced and ready to go. He’s growing like a weed and I can’t keep up with those long legs so none of my patterns from the spring would work for him.
I did modify the waistband for multiple reasons. One, I’m lazy! Two, actual drawstrings always come out in the wash. And three, again, I’m lazy, lol! The pattern calls for wider elastic than I had on hand and then you create a casing for a drawstring. I simplified the heck out of it by doing one big casing and attaching a faux drawstring to the front. These joggers were done from cut to finish in less than an hour.
I used this cotton modal french terry from Knitpop for these. I had originally ordered this luscious stuff for myself but when it arrived the color was a bit more brown than I wanted. I knew it’d be perfect for my boys though. It’s seriously some of the softest stuff I’ve worked with and I’m slightly jealous of these beauties.
Another easy peasy project in the books! I think my family might just hold the world record for most joggers in one household. If not, I think I better keep it up because that’s a title I’d proudly take!
