Week 17: Sew Something with a Pocket

I was thrilled a few weeks ago to be selected to be part of the Winter Wear Designs Just Jean Blog Tour. Which happily coincides with “Sew Something with a Pocket” week in the 52 week sewing challenge. I love being able to st stretch myself with completing a tour and making it work for the challenge and this blog tour is no different.

I was given the option to choose between Ladies Real Deal Jeans, Sk8 Skinny Jeans for Boys, or Phresh Jeggings for Girls and received the pattern from Suzanne for free to participate in the tour. I have to say it was a tough decision to which pattern I would pick because my tween boy loves skinny jeans and I, myself, need new jeans. In the end, I went with the Phresh jeggings though because Sweet Pea is in desperate need of separates to wear as we transition from winter to summer.

I found the instructions for the jeggings to be very clear to follow with lots of photos plus an introduction to sewing the jeggings that is quite charming. I love that Suzanne warns you that you will top stitch everything and she is 100% correct.

I love that these jeggings have more of regular pant feel to them and if I had any complaints it would be that there is a faux pocket rather than real pockets on the front but on the size 2 that I made for Sweet Pea, that makes for teeny tiny pockets that probably wouldn’t get used. But I do love the look of them.

I paired these super cute jeggings with All the Bells and Whistles tunic with the collar and pleating.

Normally, I would not make white pants for a pre-schooler but I am dreaming of spring and summer with our cold Vermont weather. But I think it pairs lovely with the black and white tunic I made.

I wish little miss was feeling up to better photos but with having been sick as long as she has, these are the best we could get since she insists on having her blanket lovie and a coat on at all times because she’s constantly freezing. But this little outfit is adorable and I cannot wait to make the riding pant version in the near future!

Don’t miss any stops on the Just Jeans Blog Tour
