Hey there! How was everyone’s week? Mine was blah. I was sick, and it was a really busy week at work. Last week was the trade show here in Vegas MAGIC, so it was suuuuuper busy. Running around a convention center for 8 hours is.. exhausting, but I had a lot of great meetings. I ended up getting sick, with tons of work to do the week after the show. I hate being still for too long, so while I was home I bought my first indie pattern and whipped up a pair of Hudson Pants by True Bias.
Oh! I also chopped off my hair (when boredom strikes, and the baby is sleep lol!).. Not sure if I like it yet but I guess I’ll have to get used to it.. Now about these pants!
The only fabric I had enough of that would work for this pattern was a faux leather. It’s a great fabric to work with because the opposite side of the leather is a smooth velvety knit. I cut a size bigger than i measured since the faux leather doesn’t have that much stretch, but I would have been just fine cutting my size because these turned out humungous. The back side is less than flattering, so I’ll have to wear a LONG shirt when these babies leave the house.
The pattern was so easy to put together, and I see a lot of these in my near future. It’s a super comfy pant that can be dressed up or down, and you can make it in a ton of different fabrics for any type of look. I’ve seen sequin to Aztec print, really!
One of my goals for this year was to make some independent designers’ patterns, so this is a check off the list! Im so glad I did, although PDF patterns are a bit scary at first.. Have you made any PDF patterns?
What are you currently working on?
