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.
A special thank you to all the wonderful bloggers for taking part in the blog tour, and to everyone who has been following along. I hope it offered lots of inspiration for your summer sewing!
