I made myself some new Hudson Pants, aka: the most comfortable pants on the planet.
Oh, Hudsons, with your dropped crotch and trimmed pockets, how I love you so.
I wear my other Hudson Pants at least weekly. At least. I have been meaning to make another pair for months and months, the pattern getting moved around on my sewing table with every new project. Today, I finally made the time. Mostly because my faux-leather-trimmed pair was dirty, and I couldn’t bear the thought of wearing jeans, so had to make something. It just made more sense at the time to make a new pair than to wash the old. My life and priorities are really weird. But new pants! And this time, I went with the cropped option.
The pattern is by True Bias available HERE. Such an easy sew, such a comfortable end product. I used a funky “denim” knit from Girl Charlee. It’s knit, made to look like denim; navy on one side and green on the other. I used some scraps of penguin jersey I’ve owned for nearly a decade for the pockets. Penguins in my pockets.
I actually have a whole big ol’ list of things to make for my spring/summer wardrobe, I’m hoping to get through in the next couple of weeks. These Hudsons were Project One. A pretty comfy start, I’d say.
