I picked up this GITD skull and bone knit while it was on sale earlier this year. It’s another POP! print from JoAnn.
I thought it would be a great replacement for the pair that TheMisterT plum wore out last year.
I’ve used this pattern, Simplicity 8268, 7 times now, and somehow can’t get the hang of cutting both of the cuffs so the pattern will be right-side up when sewn on! At least I got one of them on this pair! These are hanging around the house pants, so I didn’t let myself get too worked up over it and I didn’t bother to even try to pattern match.
This pattern has nice, deep pockets which is one reason I keep coming back to it. I try to add a button to the center front of the waist so TheMisterT can find the front in the dark, but forgot to sew it on before I wrapped it! It’s taped to the package under the ribbon.
They are great - love the glow-in-the-dark fabric!!
These look like so much fun to wear.
Haha! Love that they glow in the dark! Sure to be a hit.
These are so fun!
I purchased some POP flannel, but not for joggers.
I wonder if my ma would make some for me as a bday gift
I bet she would! This pattern is specifically for knits with a certain amount of stretch, but I’m sure there are similar patterns or more-skilled sewists who could make flannel work if you wanted more flannel.
I’ll have to ask her. She’s worked with a variety of fabrics and she’s a MUCH better seamstress than I am.
The fabric is killer (glowing!!!), the pattern is amazing with both cuffs and pockets, and the button to quickly find the front is smart!
A most excellent application of glow in the dark skull fabric! I’d wear these out for sure.
Thank you all!
@Abbeeroad Now you have me wondering what all the other JoAnn shoppers made with this!
These are awesome! Love the GITD element, and of course the SKULLS!
Ohmygosh I love these and I would wear the heck out of them!
Thank you! TheMisterT tends to wear the heck out of all the things, so I bet he will do so with these, too!
