DIY Chevron Jogger’s

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Thread It Thursday!!!

With every project, my goal is to improve my sewing skills.  I am a mostly self-taught sewist.  I have taken a few classes, but most of my sewing knowledge comes from books, blogs and youtube.  Which have all been great resources might I add.

Today’s area of focus is pattern matching. In the past I never even gave pattern matching a thought……well except one time prior when I made a plaid pleated skirt for my mom to attend an event.  After making that skirt for her, I never gave pattern matching any further thought.  Until now.

I had been promising to make my oldest daughter a pair of jogger pants for quite some time. She chose a lovely chevron print…..which meant I had to step up my sewing game a bit.  I needed to really make sure everything lined up all around. Now she could care less about the pattern matching, she’s just looking for a great fit.  But…..me….the one who is diligently working to improve my sewing skills has to at least try and make this look as professional as possible.

My pattern matching is not perfect, but I am pretty pleased with the outcome.  The more I practice and try new things the better I will get in time. If you would like to make these pants click here or for a similar pair click here.

I have to say that I really appreciate seeing all the inspiration and projects from other bloggers.  It motivates me to keep pushing myself to become better in all aspects of sewing, blogging etc.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it!!

Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺
