Wardrobe Builder Kit: Hudson Pants
The Hudson pant is the piece of clothing that you will wear all of the time. It is comfortable enough to wear around the house, but can easily be dressed up to go run errands. The urban fit of these pants leaves a bit of extra room around the hips and then tapers into a skinny leg. View A is a full length pant and View B is midcalf.
Pattern: Hudson Pants from True Bias
Skill Level: Confident Beginner

- Black Bamboo Cotton French Terry - With a soft fleecy face on one side and a simple black jersey on the other, this fabric is exactly what you think of when it comes to sweatshirting. Plush, soft and on the heavier side of medium weight, this fabric will be the warmest of the three options. And in the true black, it will become just the neutral basic that your handmade wardrobe needs. We're pretty sure you'll want to live in them.
- Hunter Green Cloud Fleece - What's cloud fleece, you ask? A combination of bamboo and cotton, this fabric is indescribably soft. A midweight fleece, the bamboo gives the fabric a lovely drape and lots of breathability. Plus, the fleece side is double-brushed for extra lushness! The hunter green is rich and jewel-toned, and unlike most fleece pants you'll find out there. You'll be fashion-forward even when you're rocking secret pajamas!
Also in this box: Matching thread, 2 inch wide elastic, 1/4” wide drawstring, small cut of fusible interfacing, and a ballpoint sewing needle.
I have never made a pair of pants of any kind that fit well but I decided to just go for it and make the size 8. They fit perfectly. The cloud fleece is so soft. I hope you will stock the fleece in other colors so I can make a few more pair.
Contained everything I needed to make my mom a cozy pair of Hudson pants for Christmas. The fabric was high quality and was beautifully packaged. Highly recommend this or any other kit!
