Sweatpants and Layered T-Shirt

Well here it finally is! Probably the comfiest outfit I have made for myself in a while.

For the pants I used our Sequin Joggers pattern but obviously didn’t make them in sequin fabric (although I’m sure it would be lovely). I sewed them up in a blue sweatpant fabric almost terry cloth like on the inside and also added some black stretch panels! They were a bit baggier than I would like, but it does make them that much more comfy to wear… I love me some wiggle room!

For the top I used our Mesh Shirt pattern and sewed both layers in the same white lightweight jersey and bound all the edges with black spandex.

This look is different for me, but I like it! I love the way the T-shirt fits me (I will be making more of those for sure), and I’m glad I added some panels to the pants. This project was for my latest Mash Up and you can see all of my drafting and sewing steps below:

I also love having pockets in my sweat pants!

    This turned out really cool Meg! And the bagginess goes well for this style of pants I think, the lack of it might give the illusion of too small a size. The outfit looks great on you as is :)

      Thanks so much! Never thought of the bagginess of the pants that way, and now I have a new outlook on them :)

    Great outfit for everyday living! Pockets are the best & you really added a great detail with the stretch panels.

    Great outfit! Colour blocking makes those pants so much more interesting.

    I’m in love with those sweat pants, i love how you have added the black stretch panels i didn’t look twice at this pattern and now you have definitely changed my mind about it, the whole outfit is my kind of style. Great mash up Meg.

      Thanks! I love when people look at a pattern differently after seeing another variation. That is why I always check out the member’s variations of each pattern I want to sew. Thanks again :)
