DIY Joggers: V8909 + Pattern Review

DIY Joggers: V8909 + Pattern Review

Joggers:  The ‘New Black’ of Fashion.

They’re comfortable.  Versatile.  You can wear them / make them in any knit-based fabric and rock them with any top, jacket, tank… flip flops, flats or your favorite heels.

Joggers, the modern day sweatpants, were strictly reserved for weekend attire.  Roll out of bed, grab the closest pair to you and throw on an oversized T – and there you go.  Not anymore!  I seriously need to meet the person who brought these pants out of the dresser drawers and made them fashionable!!  These pants speak LIFE to me.

I’ve made this pattern before and since I’ve worn them OUT… I’ve forced myself to make another pair.  😀  (or at least, that’s what I’ve told my hubby!)

Does it look like the photo on the pattern envelope?  Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow?  Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about this pattern?  I love a pattern with minimal pieces.  This pattern uses 5 pattern pieces and the instructions are very easy to follow.  It comes together so quickly.

Fabric Used:  4 way stretch knit, tribal print.  Very lightweight.  Perfect for warmer weather.

Would you sew it again?   This has been a staple in my wardrobe and I plan on extending this very soon!  I plan on making many more options, colors, prints etc.

Would you recommend it to others?  I definitely recommend this pattern to others.  If you need an easy, pick-me-up project – this is perfect!  Very easy for beginners.

Conclusion:  The perfect pattern for me.  My Perfect Pants Pattern!
