Love Notions – Resolution Bottoms

Don’t mind me, I am just over here celebrating another great Love Notions pattern being updated to more inclusive sizing. The Resolution bottoms come with several style options so you can have the proper comfy pants for all occasions. Sizing now includes thru 59.5 inch hip. Thank you Love Notions for working on being more inclusive!

I didn’t think I needed another knit pant pattern, but it turns out I was wrong. *GASP* I really love the fit of these. I made a mock up prior to cutting my Liverpool fabric. I needed to make a bit of a length adjustment which is not unusual for me. Otherwise, my pants are exactly as drafted. My inseam is 27 inches which means I always have to adjust the length of pants. This pattern includes 5 different fit options. So now your toughest choice will be which one to make first.

Plain leggings

Moto leggings

Bootcut yoga pants

Straight cut yoga pants

Joggers

I started with making the straight leg yoga pant with the contoured waistband. Plus the large pockets because why wouldn’t you add pockets? I wanted some comfy black pants which looked dressy, but are super comfortable. I am a huge fan of secret pajamas and this is 100% on point! My fabric is a solid black Liverpool that I picked up at Hobby Lobby not too long ago. I lucked out and there was just over two yard of fabric on the bolt which is perfect for a pair of pants with large pockets.

As I am typing this up, I am washing fabric from my next pair. I have a glorious Brushed Jacquard print from Stitchin’ Pretties in the washer. I am about to sew up the coziest joggers ever and can’t wait to put them on. This will be my first time working with Jacquard and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and show them off.

If you would like to pick up the Resolution Bottoms while there are on sale for $5, you will have to move quickly! The sale ends at midnight! Here is the link.

The top I am wearing is also a Love Notions pattern. This is the Forte and I made it last April. I took it in a little to fit my body now and it looks great with my new pants! If you want to read about this Forte top along with the 3 others I shared at the same time, you can hop over to the Love Notions blog and check out my fabric comparisons. Just click the link so see them all.

Why does my face look like that though? LOL At least my clothes are cute!

Love Notions – Constellation Hoodie

Hi Friends! I have a few things to let ya know about. First off the Constellation Hoodie pattern is the Feature Friday pattern at Love Notions this week and it is Fall Perfection! Since it is on feature it is only $5 and worth every penny!

I made my first one almost 2 years ago and blogged about it here. I used the hood options and the thumb hole cuffs on that version so this time I knew I wanted to show off different options!

Thumb hole cuffs deserve a thumbs up!

This time I used a heavier weight fabric and I love the slight structure of it. My collar stands up nicely which was really important to me! I used the regular cuff with an additional .5 inches of width added since I left the original length was a bit snug and I was unable to push my sleeves up.

Let’s talk about my fabric. Like I said, I used a heavier weight fabric which I picked up at Zinck’s of Berlin. I loved the pale purple background with the purple and red plaid layout. If you notice, the inside of my collar and the background behind my pockets, that fabric is actually my main fabric just the backside of it. 🙂 I couldn’t really find a fabric that contrasted yet matched enough to work so this ended up being the perfect solution. My red accent fabric is a scuba weight fabric and my red zipper were both also from Zinck’s.

Here is a list of the important things that are included with the Constellation Hoodie.
