You’re looking at another (my third) pair of Amy Butler In Stitches lounge pants. My other two pairs are very springy and summery, and I was feeling more like wearing oranges and greens than I was aquas and pinks, and I guess that was just the push I needed to make enough table space for my sewing paraphernalia and get back behind the machine. It’s been months! Boy, have I missed it.
This pattern comes together pretty quickly, especially if you’ve already made your fair share of bandana pants and pj bottoms in the past. I love the way these look and feel – snug enough up top that there is no saggy-bottom feeling, and wide-legged enough to give a real luxurious air to them. Paired with a nice body-skimming t-shirt, you almost feel you can leave the house in these. (And probably in a less flamboyant fabric, you could!)
Speaking of the fabric, you may recognize it from my blog header. It’s the Maples print in Citrus from Martha Negley’s Autumn Medley collection (I got mine locally at Down Cellar and online from Sew Mama Sew – yes, I had to buy it twice – I am apparently measurementally-challenged).
Happy First Day of Fall! Go make yourself a pair of festive lounge pants. Or, at the very least, make yourself a loaf of pumpkin bread and a cup of hot apple cider to go with it! (Says the one who had a bowl of dry Apple Cinnamon Cheerios for breakfast… do as I say, not as I do!)
