I am so excited to say that the Mini Hudson Pant is ready for sale. As I mentioned in a previous post I have been wanting to do this ever since I had plans to start drafting patterns for True Bias. Mostly because it reflects the way that I sew in real life. I love sewing clothing for myself, but usually when I am done with a project I have left over fabric that I like to sew up into clothing for my children.
From now on all of my patterns will eventually be children’s patterns as well. Some will be almost exact replicas of the adult version and others will be age appropriate versions. The Mini Hudson Pant is the first, but the Mini Sutton will follow in the spring as well.
The Mini Hudson Pant is a skinny sweat pant with more room around the hips, but tapering into a skinny leg. There is an elastic waistband with a drawstring and side pockets. The pant is offered in sizes 2T – 10 and is great for both girls and boys.
There are two versions. View A is a full length pant and View B is a cropped pant that hits just below the knee. Although it’s a bit cold for them here in NYC right now, I think that my daughter is going to wear the cropped version a ton in the spring. It gives a bit more of a sporty look to the pant and looks great with running shoes.
Just like it’s adult version, the Mini Hudson Pant has a waistband, pocket details and cuffs that create a great opportunity to mix colors and prints. If you have an old tshirt or sweat shirt you could easily cut it up for the details. That is what is so fun about sewing for children in my opinion. It’s a great excuse to use up leftover fabric in your stash and repurpose old clothing.
Since I am new to the kids sewing pattern world I thought that it would be fun to do a blog hop this time around. Since we are in the middle of the busy holiday season the bloghop won’t be until after the first of the year but expect that, as well as a few variation posts in the next few weeks. I won’t be doing a sewalong for these either as the construction is almost exactly the same as the adult version. I tried to keep as much the same as possible so that those of you who have already sewn up the Hudson pants can sew up the minis really easily.
You can purchase the pattern by clicking here or by clicking the illustration in the right hand sidebar. I can’t wait to see what you all make. Be sure to tag your photos #minihudsonpants on instagram so that I can see them.
