As with all MHW sewing patterns, on our blog you will find tones of resources to help you sew your patterns. Our aim is to support new sewists as they learn, so all our content is jargon free and supported by extra resources.
The Homebody Joggers can be made in sizes XS to XXL, up to a 55" hip
We recommend a stable stretch fabric with approx. 20-50% 2 way stretch for this pattern. Suitable fabrics include: Sweatshirt, fleece, velour and French terry. You can use cotton single jersey for a lighter weight pair, though you might want to size down.
An elastane mix fabric will prevent your joggers from going baggy during wear and if you are using a fabric with elastane in the mix, you can size down for a more streamlined look.
Why not take a look at our great range of jersey fabrics for this pattern.

It is vitally important, when sewing your own clothes, to take accurate measurements of your body, and not rely on the sizing you expect to buy on the high street. For this pattern we have opted to use sizing XS-XXL, which approximately covers UK sizes 8-24. Measure yourself first to choose the right size for you!
