What happens when comfort and cool collide? You get this childrens joggers sewing pattern! One piece of clothing that covers your kidlet from lounging about to doing chores, running around playing sports, and even school (if they don’t wear a uniform).
How can one pattern be so versatile that it takes you from pyjamas to classroom? Fabric choice!
The high rise, loose fitting pants with a dropped crotch, slight gathering, deep cuffs, and pocket detailing can be made in the most deliciously soft and squishy knits for the ideal duvet day apparel. Whip them up in a more structured, but equally as delicious and comfy, ponte and you have a pair of chino-style trousers for the kidlets to wear with sneakers or sandals and a nice top.
Styling your Brooklyn Joggers
Skill Level – Beginner
Sizes – Pattern includes children’s sizes XXS to 5XL. See the size chart in the gallery above.
Options – Ribbed detailing on pockets
Ideas – Consider leaving off the pockets for a more streamlined look for smarter wear
Fabrics – Suitable for almost any weight knit fabric with a minimum of 30% stretch. Best results and fit will be achieved with a medium-weight fabric. Great examples are sweater knits, medium-weight jersey, cotton lycra, viscose elastine, ponte, scuba, cotton interlock, stretch velour, and stretch French terry. A lighter weight fabric will fit a bit looser and blouson over the cuff more. Do not use a woven fabric.
For the waistband, pockets, and cuffs you’ll need ribbing or fabric with at least a 50% stretch with a good recovery. To check if your fabric has the right stretch, hold a piece up to a ruler, pull it along the stretch and see if it stretches at least 1.5 times its length.
See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.
Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.
