This “fitted track pant” trend was not one I thought I could jump on board with. In fact, I have protested it in my mind so. many. times. I had dubbed it “only for really skinny gals with small butts and long legs”. Not me. I am 5’8″, with short legs and junk in the trunk. BUT, I was so inspired by these pants on my friend Becki, and REALLY wanted to have a go at the Hudson Pant pattern that I decided to just go for it. My thoughts: if they look really bad, I can sleep in them. The result: they turned out super cute and I can’t wait to make more!
The Hudson Pant pattern is written for knits, but I wanted to sew mine in this lovely Pat Bravo print from her Nouvelle collection (yes! it is just a quilting cotton!), so sized up 3 sizes from what I would have sewn in a knit (a size 14). They fit just how I’d like them to! I added knit for the cuffs and the accent piece on the pockets.
What do you guys think? Do you like this trend?!
