Sew Pinspired Diane Joggers and Easy Tee

posted in: Uncategorized | 2

Hey everyone! I’m loving what I’m seeing so far for the Sew Pinspired contest. I had a hard time choosing an outfit but I finally settled on this one. I LOVE joggers and was so excited that 5 out of 4 came out with a jogger pattern just in time for this contest.

My Pinspiration outfit

 

I’m recreating it using the Easy Tee and Diane Joggers. For the Easy Tee I chose long sleeve, shirt length with a hood because I love hooded t-shirts. I found the perfect STOF Black and White Stripe cotton lycra fabric. I lined the hood with a solid black cotton lycra. The Easy Tee has so many options. This shirt is now my new favorite shirt and perfect for winter here in Southern Florida.

For the joggers, I did low rise, capri length with the enclosed elastic waistband and hem. My fabric was a 4 way stretch French Terry. I don’t have a coverstitch so I decided to fake it on the pockets. If you want to do this, you’ll need to cut four pocket pieces instead of two pockets and two of the lining pieces. After putting the main and lining together per the tutorial, serge around the inside edge around the curve and along the bottom and then topstitched those on to the front legs using a double needle. The joggers have an extensive fitting guide. I followed the directions for decreasing the back rise since I made the low rise and my muslin came up a little higher in the back than I usually wear my pants.

What do you think? Did I nail this look? I even tried to copy her pose. Then I thought that made me look silly so I styled this outfit the way I would wear it. I put on my purple tennis shoes, pulled my hair in a ponytail and pulled up the pant legs. I can’t wait to see the rest of your creations in this contest!

Hair up and legs pulled up is more my style than the forlorn model pose.
