Welcome To Thread It Thursday!!
Today I wanted to share a pair of floral jogger pants that I made using Simplicity Pattern 2061 View B. I love this style of pants. They are cute, comfy and can be styled in so many ways.
The fabric is a Floral Jersey Knit. I have a love/hate relationship with jersey knit. I love that it’s very forgiving….I hate that it rolls up and gets stuck in your sewing machine. I powered through the up’s and downs and completed the project.
The pattern was very easy to follow. My pants turned out as pictured on the envelope. The fit is true to size. There are not a lot of pattern pieces to cut out….which I Loved!!!!
My only suggestion/alteration would be to not add the additional 3″ to your elastic waist measurement. I would only add 1″. With the 3″ the pants were to big in the waist.
All and all this was a quick and easy sew…..minus the fabric issue’s.
I did gain a new skill. I added cuffs to the bottom of pants for the first time and it was very simple to do.
With each project I am building up my sewing knowledge, skill and confidence. At time’s it can be very frustrating but in the end when I have made a wearable garment it just feels AMAZING!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, it’s greatly appreciated.
