Joggers + Leggings = Loggers

Jan 6, 2020

I cannot believe that I haven’t shared these pants yet, especially considering that I get all heart eyed when I think of them!

Forever ago, we released a pattern at Patterns for Pirates that is basically the pant that the sewing world has been waiting for.  It wears like a legging, but fits like a jogger.  And it’s delightful.  Let’s talk about the Loggers pattern from P4P, shall we?

Loggers are a tight fit pant, with a little more ease and wiggle room than what a traditional legging would have.  The fabric I chose for my pair is a double brushed polyester from JoAnn Fabrics…in basically one of my favorite florals ever.  DBP is a super popular fabric base but doesn’t exactly rank up there for me.  I don’t wear leggings too often, except to bed and to workout.  And when I workout, DBP holds alllll the heat in and is not exactly a fabric of choice.  These Loggers were made to be lounge pants for me, that’s for sure.  There’s nothing quite like looking cute and put together while feeling like you’re wearing pjs around the house, right?

Though I like my styling here, I don’t find myself wearing anything that isn’t denim or jeggings while I’m out and about.  It’s just a personal style preference.  But it’s my style preference.  However, if I’d made these exact bottoms in a denim wash of some sort: LOOK. OUT. WORLD.  Because I would100% live in them every single day of my life.

I chose to sew the full pant length, with patch pockets and the high, yoga waistband.  I am such a mom with the absolute love for high waisted pants.  I can’t stop wearing them.  Something about the comfort of a higher rise just makes me feel protected…like if I do some dance moves in the parking lot in an attempt to embarrass my family, my shirt won’t be at risk of flying up during one of my super fly moves, showing my belly to the world.

P to the S: If you love the contour waistband from the Peg Legs Add-Ons pack, it totally works with this pattern.  Do it and thank me later.

In terms of the pocket, Judy never ever skimps on pocket size.  Phones fit really comfortably into them, with room to spare.  I find it incredibly annoying (and insulting, really) that most clothing manufacturers act like women don’t need pockets.  Do we not deserve to be hands free like men?  Why create the tiniest spaces to hold our ever growing phones?  Or not even give us pockets in our bottoms, but rather faux ones?  SIGH.  That’s another fight for another day.

Today, I’m going to continue to relish in the fact that I can sew my own wardrobe, therefore liberate myself against the pocket injustices of the world.  Won’t you join me?
