You know, when you have to get dressed
But you really don't want to.
Hudson pants but in a woven.
Sewn up in soft denim, my seemingly endless roll that I purchased five years ago (or so) from eBay.
As Hudson's are made for knit fabrics I knew I would have to size up.
I decided to wing it and use the same size I made here. These pants still fit but are very drape-y now. The Twins intimated they would wear them if they didn't suit me.
I am very pleased with the seat of these, they stay nice even after a day of wear.
Not too 'mum-bummy' and I have a flat arse.
As Elsa says 'You don't have a bottom, just a thigh with a crease in it'.
Rather the using ribbing for the pocket trim, I trimmed back a woven polo shirt collars (people hand them on to me in droves, it must have been the thing to buy and marinate in your stash in the 90's) and used that.
It worked really well.
I was tempted to used the same for the cuff but had a very similar ribbing so went with that
I used cotton/modal for the pocket bags.
A trick I learnt sewing Zara's trousers.
The drawstring is completely faux but mandatory (according to the Twins).
So, will they score them?
Will they heck!
Love them, super quick to sew 2 1/2 hours and I am not a speedy sewer.
I think I may have sized up 3 sizes for my hips? They fit fine through the bum and thighs but almost pull at the back of the calf.
I am right into capsule wardrobes at present and these fit in perfectly.
Also, being woven and not knit, I can get a second day from them if I air them in between wears
