True Bias Hudson Pant, Size 2
Renfrew Top, Size 6
Ahhh, it is so nice to have comfy lounge pants to wear! If you are looking for a easy sew and quick gratification project, this is the pattern to have. I am amazed at how well drafted and fitting these pants are. I used a thermal knit I had in my stash; I purchased it so long ago that I can't remember from where. For the pocket trim, waistband, and ankle pieces, I used navy blue ribbing. For the inner pocket and lining pieces, I used the same thermal knit fabric as the pants.
I won't be wearing these out of the house since the white thermal knit is a little bit on the sheer side if the light catches it just right.
For my Renfrew top, I cut out a size 6 this time since I wanted a more roomy fit and feel to it. The fabric is a stretch rayon jersey knit, which is very stretchy and drapey. The neckband isn't as tight due to this, but I'm okay with that since this is just for the purpose of a pajama. I purchased this knit from Fabric.com. I used most of it on leggings and had only an odd-shaped remnant left, so it was a tight squeeze getting it cut out, but thankfully it worked.
I am already cutting out a second pair of pants--I like them that much! It is rare that I turn around and make the same thing immediately. I will get some 2 inch elastic though and see if I can get the waistband right next time. However, I am totally happy with the looks of an unstitched waistband too! No one is going to see it and I rarely ever tuck my shirts in or wear a shirt that short in length where the top of the pant is seen.
On a personal note, I had my stitches removed yesterday from the 2nd phase of my breast reconstruction surgery! I'm still a work in progress. Apparently radiation can tighten up the skin, so the left side is not wanting to cooperate as much. It's really grabbing on and holding that implant in. My surgeon will do a little more with it during the next surgery, which is in January. I'm getting there!! I ordered the Jalie bra pattern to make some nice, simple cotton knit bras. So, I'm excitedly waiting on my pattern which should be arriving in the mail any day. I ordered my bra-making supplies from Sew Sassy.
