Sewing Fashion Trends: Joggers

Sport luxe is pretty popular right now with the cuffed jogger being top of the list. I think is a good basic to own for those day where your mostly at home but might need to pop out a few times to run errands. 

Comfy enough to relax in, stylish enough to pop out in. I even like the more high end look of pairing them with heels and a jacket, but for me I'd probably stick to a slip on trainer style shoe and slouchy off the shoulder T.

What I really like about this trend that when it comes to sewing it, the indie patterns are running the race. Burda of course are always there, but I'm struggling to find any looks from the other big pattern companies- Go Indie's:

A Closer Look At The Patterns....

 Papercut Pattern: Anima Pant

Described as a 'must have staple' I think these are pretty cool, I also love how they come with three variation, full length, 3/4 pants and shorts.
Papercut are also running a anima competition right now if your interested.  

 True Bias: The Hudson Pant

This is the very first pattern release from True Bias, and ultra brand new I might add only being released last month. The pattern comes with two versions, full length and 3/4. True Bias is also doing a sew-a-long-for these.

Burda: jersey track pants 06/2014 #119

Always at the fore front of trends, Burda have created there own version. These are more baggy than the previous two but gives you the chance to mix and match your fabrics for a bolder look. 

What I love about the first two patterns is that you can keep them super casual by making them in a plain colour or style them right up using a jersey print or even going uber stylish and trying them in a stretch satin. with the burda pattern I feel you have to think more carefully about your fabric choice otherwise the could run the risk of looking like gym joggers.

What your take on this trend Yay or Nay?

  1. I was a NAY!, but I think I am being swayed to more of the YAY! side. The Burdastyle version reminds me of Happy pants from the 90's, but I suppose it depends on the fabric chose and amount of bagginess. Looking forward to seeing your creation.

  2. Thanks for sharing these trendy workout clothes. Last week, I ordered alo yoga wear for my workouts after recommendation from couple of my friends. I really liked quality of these workout wear and wearing them while jogging as well as during gym workouts.

How To: Inserting a side seam zip with pocket

This skirt was meant to have a center back zip along with side seam pockets. Instead I put the two together and combined the zip into the side seam pocket and thought I would share with you how I did it or basically winged it ;)

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
