Tierras Woven Joggers Pattern // Sewing For Women

Happy Monday everyone! 

I'm excited to be starting off this week with a super fun project (or two)! Last week I had the privilege of testing the brand new Tierras Woven Joggers pattern from Itch to Stitch. These are a super quick sew! I had two pairs whipped up in no time at all.

The joggers are meant to be low-rise, with a slightly tapered leg, optional elastic hem at the ankle. The joggers feature an elastic & drawstring waist and deep side pockets that are just perfection. Both of the versions I made, I chose to do a straight hem and also raised the rise for more of a mid-rise version. My mommy tummy prefers the mid-rise ;) The pattern includes instructions on how to adjust the rise, this is a super easy modification! If you are a beginner at pants sewing, I would definitely recommend this pattern, adjusting the rise on this pattern was the easiest I have done so far.

The first pair I made was my "muslin" that I was very hopeful would be wearable, and I was not disappointed! For this pair, I added 1" to both the front and back rise. I did not adjust the leg length for my height on this one and ended up cutting off  2 1/2" before hemming. No other adjustments were made and I am SUPER happy with the fit all around. I used a vintage sheet that has been in my stash for years and am so happy I used it for this project, it is the perfect worn-in-soft that I was going for on this pair. I'll just be lounging in these every Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon from here on out...

The second pair I made, I went for the wear-them-out-of-the-house kind of pants :) I'm going to be honest here and say that this is a little more bold than I would normally wear, but paired with the white shirt and jean jacket, I think I could pull it off comfortably! 

One of my goals this year is to sew a lot more from my stash, and I did just that for this project. I wanted to try this pattern in a more drapey fabric than the sheet I used for the first version and this rayon was the only piece I had that had enough yardage to work with. I am pleased with how it came out and in a drapey fabric, this pattern takes on a whole new look that I am definitely in love with!

Also, if you are like me, sometimes you might be tempted to skip features to save a little time... I was tempted to skip on the drawstring, but I'm so glad I took the extra 10 minutes to insert it! It gives a fabulous adjustable fit and makes them feel so much more secure and like real "pants" instead of just pjs, haha! They are still secret pajamas, but feel a little bit more substantial.

I did order some solid colored fabric for my next pair, just sayin'... ;) 

For this version, I added another 1/2" to the front rise, based on my first version. But now having sewn it up, I don't think I would have needed to do that in such a drapey fabric. This just goes to show how differently a garment can look and feel based on fabric selection! I also shortened the legs on this version the 2 1/2" that I cut off at the hem on the first version. I am 5'3" for reference.

I'm really looking forward to sewing up a few more of this pattern in some solid colors! I'm also thinking of a cropped version, hmmmm, yes!

I'll leave you with an onslaught of photos! I love my new comfy pants! These will be seeing a lot of wear, since much of my time is spent at home! Even though I do stay home a lot of the time, I still like to get dressed and feel put together. This pattern combines put together and pure comfort. A huge win in my book!!

PS. 
This is the first Itch to Stitch pattern that I have sewn and I was very happy with the whole experience! I can't wait to sew more of Kennis' patterns! I love that her tops are drafted with built in cup sizes. It also helps that my measurements exactly fall in line with her size 4. I have the Bonn Shirt pattern and can't wait to sew it up. I'm hoping I can get away with very few adjustments! I also have my eye on the Vienna Tank for this summer. Stay tuned for those!

  1. ooh! I like the PJ version, I'm only 5'2" and find the usual wide legged PJ patterns make me look ridiculous. Are they comfy for sitting/lounging in?

    1. Absolutely!! I wore them all day Sunday after getting home from church. I fixed an easy lunch for my family and then pretty much stayed glued to the couch the rest of the day, lol. They are so so comfortable!
