Penelope Lounge

It’s been awhile since I made the Penelope Pant (you can see my first version, the Star Spangled Jogger, here), but I vowed that the next time I did, it would be a lounger pant. Well, I finally did it!

For this version, I used a fun, coffee (& donuts) French Terry from So Sew English and a cotton jersey for the waistband (that way I had plenty of stretch and recovery in this area). Since this is my second time sewing up this pattern, I knew going in that I needed shorten the pants length 3″. I also felt like the waistband on my joggers was too high for my liking so while I was at it, I took 2″ off the width of the waistband. This version? Perfection. Plus there’s pockets, which makes them even better in my book.

I had hoped to make a matching top for this, but ran out of material for my original plan. I’ll have to find a cute coffee SVG that I can use to make an iron on and use some of the remnants for the sleeves of a raglan.
