Total Eclipse of the Stitch is one of Sarah’s alltime favorite fabric printers! She could not wait to receive this awesome toadstool cotton lycra print that is part of their current preorder. She immediately asked for new joggers!
I have not made joggers for her before, so the challenge was… could I make her a pair with ONE YARD of cotton lycra? I began looking at patterns that fit Sarah’s requests (pockets were a need!) and settled on the Carita Joggers by New Horizon patterns. One of the biggest selling points to me for this pattern was the option for different inseams. Sarah’s on the petite side and only needed a 29″ inseam. Because of this I was able to fit both the front and back pieces on the one yard of fabric!
I used a super soft black doublebrushed polyester/lycra for the pockets, waistband and cuffs and a pop of teal cotton/lycra for the pocket bands.
This was such a quick and easy sew! They were a perfect fit without any modifications which is always a huge plus in my book! I’m sure we’ll be making more of these in the future!
