Happy new year! Hard to believe it’s 2017 but here we are. I hope to make the best of it and I hope the same for you as well.
II made these Simplicity 8268 joggers as my first (two) completions of the year. I wanted something casual and comfortable to wear. I spend most of my days dressed casually (I’m sewing at home and away professionally now), but I didn’t necessarily want more sweatpants.
Honestly, this isn’t something that I would have even chosen, but it was on sale so, why not. As it turns out, I’m really glad I bought it.
While the all black is hard to see, it’s made of a ponte knit with black rib knit waist and leg cuffs. The purple is a polyester athletic fabric with the same black rib knit waist and leg cuffs.
This features deep pockets which I love. You could add a gusseted side pocket with a snap closure to the leg if you wanted as well.
This could even be made from a sparkly knit fabric for some variety and a different look! Now I’m looking in my stash (of patterns and fabric) for a top, probably long in the back, to coordinate with these.
That’s all for now.
Until next time…
