More Hudson Pant love!

I've recruited another convert to the Hudson Pant from:
Not only are they sooo comfy, the instructions are really clear & they give a professional finish.  Also for a stretch fabric newbie, our super wide jersey is easy to sew & doesn't fray, so no edge finishing needed!

New Cosy Loungewear!

I've started on the new Jersey fabric already!!
My favourite comfy bottoms - Hudson Pants from
I haven't worn out the last pair I made, but now I have one pair to wear, whilst the other is in the wash :)
As this fabric is a whopping 175cms wide, you only need just over a metre (my legs are quite long!) so £9.50's worth.
It sews so easily, seams press nicely & washes brilliantly. We've got 3 marl shades in at the mo, blue, green or brown.  A great jersey to start sewing knit/stretch fabrics ;)
