As I have said before, I love Sew Like My Mom and her patterns! We just wrapped up testing on her newest pattern, the Boxwood Joggers. I love how quick this pattern was and the unique detail of the side pockets!
As you can see, Little Miss loves the pockets too! The pattern starts at size 12 months and goes up to size 16! It comes with 3 lengths (shorts,capris, and pants), I made the capris length. After testing, it now comes with a boy fit and girl fit in the larger sizes. That is what I love about testing for Melissa, she listens to her testers and makes any needed changes until the pattern is perfect!
This pattern is intended for a little heavier knit like french terry, or in my case, the quilted knit from Joanns was perfect! For the pockets and bands, a lighter fabric such as cotton/lycra or jersey is a nice way to add a little character. Again, I can not stress how fast these were to sew up!
Bitty was a trooper with taking pictures! Barely an hour earlier the kids stepped in a wasp nest across the street and Bit walked away with 5 battle scars on her little legs. Bud didn’t walk away unscathed, but had it a little easier with only 2 stings. Poor kids!
These pants are the perfect play pant and I already have plans for multiple pairs for BOTH kids in all lengths. Rumor has it, there is a a women’s version in the works, right Melissa?!
