Girlfriend has been requesting some comfy pants for a while now, and she is on the verge of outgrowing her mini hudsons from the spring so I have been looking for a replacement.
I used the Oliver and S Parachute Sweatpants and sized up to a 12. She *probably* should have had a ten, but I figured she wouldn't mind them being a bit baggy at first and for them to last for a while. I found this rad double sided knit at Joanns last week, they had it in a few different colorways and I also picked it up in raspberry.
I changed it up a bit by adding a cuff instead of the elastic in the cuffs, but that added length. I really should have waited until she was home from school, but I am a naptime/impatient sewer, sooooo these ones will be extra long. I do like the look of the cuff, though, when she pulled the pants up a bit. So next time I will take off some length and do the cuff again.
I also made my TNT, always go-to, Field trip raglan. I used a white cotton lycra and a Riley Blake spotted knit.
This outfit got her seal of approval, which is a big deal as of late.
