*I received this pattern for free through in exchange for helping to spread the word about the Perfect Pattern Parcel and all gushing, opinions, and excessive wearing between washes are my own.
Why hello, new favorite pants ever!
Things I have done in these pants:
-Make Halloween costumes
-Take many naps
-Make more Halloween costumes (no seriously, it’s gotten out of hand)
-Came very close to wearing them to work until I remembered that they are sweatpants
-Cry while getting dressed for work
-Lounge, nap, think about napping, etc.
-Many mugs of tea
-Think about how soft these pants are
Seriously, I wore them for six straight days and then hung pathetically around the washer/dryer when I finally peeled them off to wash. Am I over-sharing again? I don’t even care. They’re so comfortable I want to nap all the time. And they came together in about twenty minutes. (Not counting pattern taping, obviously.)
I used a lusciously soft French terry from fabric.com that is sadly no longer available. Luckily they have quite a selection in many colors so go take a look. The one I got was lightweight (much lighter than I was expecting and I almost returned it until I compared it with my roomie’s meundies sweatpants and realized they were the same weight) and SO SOFT. I had ordered another one that was heavier weight and not as soft so it got sent back. I don’t know if it would’ve softened up with washing but it was kind of a weird color so oh well. Anyway, since they have such a flexible return policy I would recommend ordering a few or getting some swatches to see what you like. I just ordered this one and this one and this one. I’ll report back when they arrive.
Anyone recognize the waistband fabric? Yup, Carrie was sweet enough to let me snag some Julia cardigan scraps which I used for the waistband and pocket detail of these guys.
Anywayyy the best part is that it’s Pattern Parcel time again and this pattern is included in the Parcel #6! Click on the graphic for more information.
