Hudson pants in rayon fabric - MaaiDesign blog

And so we have come to the end of our See You At Six blog tour!

It's been a lot of fun!  Every day started with the excitement of finally seeing what one of the bloggers had made with our new rayon fabrics. 

I hope you have enjoyed it too.

Today it is my turn, and I made another pair of Hudson pants!

Now I am all set for spring and summer. Well for pants that is! I still have lots of plans for tops, shorts, skirts... My sewing wishlist never gets any shorter, and I have a couple of kids I like to dress too.

I used the same pattern pieces as my previous pair, but I added extra width from the knee down as I wanted a looser fit. I thought that would work better for this very drapey fabric, and it does.

I used the original Hudson pants pocket pieces here and added 1.5 inch of extra length to them as recommended by Kelli from True Bias(designer of the Hudson pants pattern)

I did not bother with a cord around the waist. It just has an elastic in it and I added two vertical stitch lines on each side to stop it from twisting.

I included elastic in the leg cuffs as well, but made the cuffs narrower. The waistband is about 5cm tall, while the cuffs are about 3.5cm. 

I am very happy with how they turned out. They are a dream to wear. Super soft and light.

The perfect pair of pants to keep the mozzies at bay on a hot summer night.
