The Hudson Pants by True Bias are the Comfiest DIY Jogger Sweatpants you can sew for your handmade loungewear collection.
As part of my winter sewing plans, I recently finished my True Bias Hudson Pants. I have been wanting to sew these for a while, and I’m so glad I finally did because they are THE comfiest sweatpants I’ve ever owned. And yes, that’s including any ready-to-wear pair I’ve worn!
Why I Chose to Sew the True Bias Hudson Pants
All sweatpants that I’ve ever bought were always way too long and the waistband too big, so I avoided buying sweatpants for a really long time. I basically just wear shorts all the time because of this – even when it’s winter.
When I came across the Hudson Pants sewing pattern when I first started sewing, I knew I had to sew them eventually. I was jealous of everyone’s handmade sweatpants! Now that I have my own pair, I want to make sooo many more!
My Sewing Process
These Hudson Pants were super easy to sew and I made them in a sweater fabric from Minerva. It’s the same fabric that I made my sweater with, which was the project that my husband picked for me back in December (which by the way, I STILL have some left over).
I would consider this an advanced beginner pattern. It’s perfect if you are just getting into sewing knits. Since sweater fabric is a bit thicker, it’s easier to handle making it a great beginner project. I sewed all my seams with a serger which made for a VERY quick process.
As far as my modifications go, the only changes I made were shortening the length by a few inches.
Wearing My Hudson Pants
I absolutely love wearing mine while lounging around the house. They’ve been the perfect pair of sweatpants to wear during the cold winter months and will carry me well into spring. I love waking upon a cold Saturday morning and lounging around in my Hudson Pants while drinking a hot cup of coffee or tea! They’re also perfect for all-day movie marathons or gaming sessions with my husband.
If you haven’t had a chance to sew the Hudson pants yet, you definitely need these in your me-made wardrobe! They will definitely become your new favorite lounge pants. Since I still have leftover fabric, I am planning on hacking the Hudson Pants pattern by making myself some Hudson Shorts! I can’t wait to share that process with you soon!
