The homebody joggers are what we've all needed recently, a comfy, cosy pair of trousers we can wear at home or out and about.
Features and Variations
The Homebody Joggers include nice, deep pockets a comfortable waistband with thick 38mm elastic and an ankle cuff. The simplicity of this pattern lends its self to endless variations too! We love a pattern you can use over and over and really make your own.
For example, you can make the Homebody Joggers all in once colour, which looks sleek and streamlined. OR, you can play with your fabrics and use contrast colours to make a feature out of the pockets or the cuffs. This a great opportunity to add something special to your joggers and make them truly unique. It's also a chance to use some some smaller pieces of fabric and do some scrap busting!
The joggers have a relaxed leg, and testers who have fallen between sizes found they can choose between sewing the smaller size for a more streamlined fitted look, or the larger size for a more relaxed, baggy style. You can make both for yourself and see which you prefer!
Tutorials and Resources on the blog
As well as the beautiful, full colour photo instructions included with the pattern as a PDF, over on the My Handmade Wardrobe Patterns Website, you will find a huge amount of resources to help you learn how to sew your own clothes. For this pattern we have included blog posts which guide you through making perfect button holes, sewing heavy weight jersey fabrics and preparing your pattern for sewing.
We also will be publishing guides with different ways you can finish the waist band, with or without button holes, using ribbing for the cuffs, turning the joggers in to shorts and leaving the cuff open for a totally different style.
This pattern is going to have so many ways to sew it, you will be able to sew 10 different pairs!
Choosing the Right Fabric
We stock a range of sweat shirting fabrics, all of which work beautifully as joggers. And you don't have to stick to plain fabrics! Why not pick a fun print and really go to town with making a pair of joggers as unique as you are

A big thank you to Mat, Sarah's husband and graphics wizz, who makes the instructions booklets look so beautiful.
