*join the fun with our sew-a-long for these fab
sweatpants, starting January 7th 2015*
Every girl needs a trim pair of sweatpants.
Make these in stretchy, drape-y knits... think medium to
lightweight sweat-shirting,T-shirting, velour, ponte or silk(y)
jersey; a touch of spandex is highly recommended!
Slim-fit, pull-on pants sit at the natural waist and feature a
forward side seam and lower leg inserts. Waistband is
gently elasticated and the legs are cropped to *j-u-s-t* above
the ankle. Pants fronts have shaped patch pockets; back has
a semi-circular yoke. Matching or contrast top-stitching is
totally optional and adds a cool, modern look...
These are the kind of pants that you reach for after-or even
before!- a long, hard day. Pull them on when you need to be
really comfy, but also when you want to look sporty, relaxed
and fabulous. They’ll work beautifully with a slouchy T or
sweatshirt for busy days at home or relaxing evenings on the couch.
Need to run a few errands? Slip on your favorite sneakers, top
with a hoodie or a denim jacket and you’re out the door...
Sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 will need around 2 yards or 182cm fabric;
sizes 18-20-22-24-26 will need around 2 & 1/4 yards or 205cm fabric.
You’ll also need a scrap of fusible interfacing, plus enough 2” or 5cm
wide *soft* elastic to encircle your waist.
All fabric amounts are for 60" or 150cm wide fabric.
