Hudson Pants and Two Pneuma Sports Bras

Denim French Terry Hudson Pants

Activewear sewing continues!

Denim French Terry Hudson Pants

These are my third True Bias Hudson Pants and my first capri version.

Denim French Terry Hudson Pants

They’re made from a super soft and lightweight “denim” French terry from LA Finch Fabrics that I also used for this Plantain shirt.

I cut a size 4 so they’re pretty slim fitting and I also adjusted the front crotch curve to get rid of some excess fabric in the center. Other than that, the only change I made was omitting the drawstring.

These two sports bras are made with Papercut Patterns’ Pneuma Tank pattern.

Both were sewn months ago and are in heavy rotation. They’re definitely my favorite sports bras that I own.

Papercut Patterns' Pneuma Sports Bra

The fabric is fantastic – two colors of a lovely supplex nylon knit from Rockywoods.com. I used the fuschia for these leggings.

I doubled the fabric on the front half of the bra to add extra support. Instead of using bra-strapping I made narrow tubes of self fabric for the criss -cross straps.

I have enough of the green fabric left to maybe make another sports bra. I might try a cropped version of Fehr Trade’s XYT Workout Top.

  • I love how you did the waist of your pants! What did you do exactly? 🙂 Also love your bras – I’m also a huge fan of Papercuts – I’m now making their Oh la Leggings pattern and can’t recommend it enough. Great leggings you might want to check out for your workout wear projects.

  • Looks great! I love the criss cross straps. I made a pneuma top ages ago and always meant to make a few more, just love the look!

  • Thanks for sharing your activewear sewing! I’ve had my eye on the Hudson pants for a while, because I’m so short that I can’t buy cuffed pants off the rack (have to hem off like 5″). I love your version.
