Ever since making these Lucky/Spooky Rocketship Sweatpants for TheMisterT I have been looking at this same line of fabric at JoAnn for something to make a pair for me. It’s a juvenile apparel line and it seems that I don’t get excited about it until the Hallween-y prints come out.
This print is also glow-in-the-dark!
I used Simplicity 8268 again which goes together pretty quickly. In fact, if I wasn’t using a special sew-on-knits stitch on my machine I bet the sewing would take less than 2 hours, maybe even quite a bit less. The pattern calls for ribbing at the ankle and for the elastic casing at the waist, but using the same fabric worked for TheMisterTs pair so I used it for mine, too. For me not having a contrast piece at the top and bottom works better.
The MisterT’s BIL has a birthday coming up in about a month and if TheMisterT’s sister thinks her hubz would ike a pair of silly joggers, I am going to try to find a suitable print for him, too!
