Hudson Pants and Two Pneuma Sports Bras

Activewear sewing continues! These are my third True Bias Hudson Pants and my first capri version. 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…

True Bais Hudson Pants #2

Hey all of you lovelies! Thanks so much for all the comments on my dress. I was on vacation last week so I wasn’t able to keep up with comments as much without phone service. Speaking of vacation I wore my first pair of Hudsons nearly the entire trip. Comfy *and* warm! I made this second pair the day before I left but only wore them a couple times (no cool nature pics with these…

It’s also November and I notoriously own a grand total of two pairs of pants. Both jeans. Yeah, I need some more pants. Mission accomplished!

End of the Year Review!

Well, it’s the end of the year which means everyone does a summary of what we made this year. I really enjoy reading other people’s review posts I never actually did one of these for 2013, I think I thought about it but then it was almost the end of January and at that point I guess I figured it was too late. But this year I’m going to do one of these posts. Let’s…
