Those crazy girls over at Pattern Anthology have done it yet again! Another fabulous pattern package, this one all women’s patterns and designed to keep you cool and comfortable all week long: 8 Days a Week Collection.
And let me tell you, it delivers on its promise to outfit you through all the days. The collection consists of four fun, stylish, and versatile patterns:
I have plans to make all four patterns. But for today, we’re going to discuss the Go To Knit Pants. There are three views in the pattern: leggings, track pants, and lounge pants. I made the track pants (View B), and seriously, folks, they are fabulous.
Track Pants? I don’t know who decided that was the upscale name for sweats. But if it means I can get away with this much comfort and still be considered fashionably attired, I am all in! I think it’s such a fun trend, I’m totally milking it for all it’s worth. I know that there are naysayers out there, saying that slouchy, knit pants are just too casual to be considered outside the house. I get it. I do. But here’s the thing, there is only a very small window in time when the fashion stars align and something so ridiculously comfortable suddenly gets thrust into the On Trend limelight. Why fight it? I mean, do you really want to miss out on this? No, you do not! Also, they are the absolute perfect pants for lounging around the house. So peel off those skinny jeans and slip into something a little more comfortable. (not that I’m giving up my skinnies just yet. I’m an equal-opportunity pants wearer)
I made my Go To Knit Pants out of some incredibly soft French terry from Fabric.com. It sews like a dream, it feels like heaven on my legs. Perfect fabric for this pattern. The pattern came together super easily. When I make my next pair (oh, yes, there will be more!), I will make the cuffs a bit more narrow. But other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing.
