The Curse Of The Hudson Pants: it’s real. Someone has fallen in love with every single pair I’ve made. And it’s really hard to say no because I love seeing my people wearing things I make. So I’ve happily gifted them, every single time. This is at least the 4th pair I’ve made, but these floral Hudson Pants are the first pair I’ve called my own. Probably because I live far away and none of my friends have seen this pair yet:) Time will tell if I’ve broken the curse!
I’m sure you’ve seen probably seen hundreds of Hudson Pants, and dozens of floral Hudson Pants; but I have to show you mine just the same. Because you haven’t seen them in front of a stack of bricks, pavers, and pallets. What can I say, this is redneck paradise! For the record, this is further proof that I’m sewing for Me Made May. I think I’ll just keep sewing for me this summer too. It’s been fun.
Everyone loves the pockets on this pattern. Joggers are comfy and easy to wear. I know lots of folks rock em’ with heels, but I mostly wear them with sandals. The cuff allows them to tuck into boots real easily, which will be nice in the heat. You just don’t want to go bare-legged into wooded areas but y’all, I roast in jeans. These might just be my “Say No To Poison Ivy” pants.
I kinda like how I styled this “outfit” although in real life I just put a chambray shirt over my pajamas. Perfect for idontgivvashhhh days.
I think I’m feeling more comfortable in front of the camera with all your encouragement, but I promise not to turn into a fashion blogger. I love fashion but you know…this is me, and this is me, and here’s another picture of me. I’ll try not to do that. Uh-oh, I’m already doing it, huh? I’ll stop now :)
After reading that it sounds mean against the fashys and I didn’t intend that. I’m just not in their league! I managed to cut off the pants in every photo except one. It’s just way easier to let someone else wear the pants. Or take them off entirely.
Some detail shots:
I cut the right leg (your left) off grain and didn’t even realize it until I watermarked these photos. It straightens out when I wear it.
P.S. I knocked my timing belt out in the sewing machine again. Can you believe it? Now I figured out: it’s this rug I’ve been making that caused the problem. Guess my rug will just be a plant cushion. Maybe a giant coaster? Sigh. It’s already fixed and I’m getting my machine back tomorrow. I often like to make the same mistake twice, just to be sure.
