Wow what’s with all the dust in my blog?? I can’t believe the last time I posted something was three months ago! It doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped making things though. If you’re following my Instagram, you might notice that I’m still sewing. I guess the instant way of Instagram posts has made me lazy to do a ‘real post’ in this blog.
Anyway! This is one of the many unblogged things that I’ve made all this time. These pants are Joni knit track pants by Style Arc. You can find the pattern in their website or in the Etsy shop. From the product description: “This is the new track pant shape featuring a slightly dropped crotch and angled leg seam. The rib elasticised waist band has a channeled cord threaded through the centre. The lovely deep rib cuffs complete this designer look track pant. Joni can be made in all knit or knit & rib.”
I made the pants in size 6 with length alteration since I’m 150 cm (4’11”). The long cuffs and angled leg seams are very interesting, subtle details that give the pants more character. I also like that these joggers have back pockets. All the seams are finished on overlocker except when attaching pockets.
The pattern for this sweatshirt is copied from an RTW sweatshirt that I already have. My favorite part is the big, pleated sleeves. Actually I just put the sweatshirt on the fabric and traced them with chalk, not making a real pattern from it. This way works quite well with oversized sweater in knit fabric, but of course not for fitted clothing in in woven fabric.
You can see that this is a really comfortable outfit. I have a grey merle sweatshirt and joggers set for my winter pajamas and I think I’ve just copied it. Since this one is black, this outfit doesn’t really look like pajamas…. or is it? But it is very comfortable so I will wear this all winter!
