Monthly Pattern Pick

In my search for a great lounge pant pattern, I came across True Bias.  That is where I discovered possibly the best lounge pant pattern I have ever tried.  The Hudson Pant is by far going to be my go-to pattern for loungewear.  I spent a couple of hours on Sunday making a pair of the Hudson Pants for my daughter and they fit and looked amazing.  I am definitely making a pair for myself.  

This pattern is for advanced beginner sewists.  I found the instructions were very well laid out and easy to follow.  I followed the recommendation of the pattern to use the hip measurement rather than the waist measurement. I then used the actual elastic that I was going to insert to measure the waist size and cut it accordingly with a half-inch added for the overlap to sew the elastic together.  This worked perfectly.  I adding some stretch stitching to the waistband to give it the look I was going for and it worked out perfectly.   

The fabric that I used was Robert Kaufman's Laguna Cotton Jersey Knit Onyx which is 95% cotton and 5% spandex. 

So there you have it my Monthly pattern pick is the Hudson Pant by True Bias.
