Picking up where we left off last week… today’s post is all about the final pattern in the 8 Days a Week collection: The Go To Knit Pants. This versatile pattern has not one, not two, but three different looks included – A legging, cropped lounge pants (with pockets), and pair of straight legged pants. I started off by making a pair of leggings and as you can see, I’m jumping for joy at how comfy (and fun – it’s a funky cat print) they feel. Leggings have become a new wardrobe staple.
I also stitched up a pair of the straight legged pants (not shown) in a slinky knit that I’ve been hording in my stash. It’s currently hanging in my closet awaiting hemming (you should always allow your slinky to hang a few days after sewing to make sure that it doesn’t ‘grow’ – the only downside to slinky, IMHO), but I have to admit, they are very flattering to the backside. I love the look so much, I purchased a bunch of solid colored knits to make more. I’ll be sure to post my progress on all my new pants very soon!
Be sure to check out my posts from last week that cover the rest of the 8 Days a Week grouping. What a fun collection!:
