A road trip vacation called for one thing- new comfy pants! And when there is snow still in the forecast you go for the warmest, coziest pants you can find. These Love Notions Resolution Joggers in fluffy Raspberry Creek sweatshirt fleece couldn’t be better!

This french terry sweatshirt fleece is just about the warmest, fluffiest fabric ever. My little guy found a scrap of it and is begging for his own pair. He declared it the softest fabric he’s ever felt. There is minimal stretch but it worked great for this pattern with a little modification. I used a different cotton/spandex french terry for the cuffs and added 2″ elastic to the contoured waistband for more stability. I also added the drawstring for a sporty look.
I used the tutorial in the Resolution Sew Along to add velvet ribbon down the side. I’ve been crushing on all the side stripes I’m seeing everywhere these days and this was such a simple addition that totally added that ‘wow’ element to these pants.
The Resolution pattern comes with jogger, yoga pant, and legging options. I was a bit nervous when attaching the jogger calf pattern piece to the upper pant option of the pattern. It creates a defined angle at the knee that I was worried would mean strange-looking legs. I subtly curved my piece a tiny bit and crossed my fingers. At this point I really should just trust those Love Notions ladies! The final result is a great fitting pairing of joggers. That back yoke detail is super flattering and a great place to do a little fabric mixing too.
These pants were so perfect for our snowy drive and have been in constant rotation since. Utah spring still brings snow and chilly temps so I know I’ll get more use out of these this season.
My jogger obsession continues and I’m happy to have finally sewn up this pattern. I know I’ll use it again and again!
