Hudson Tracky Dacks

A post with not that many pictures.  I made some Hudson pants.  I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but I am very pleased with this make.  I needed something to wear with them to take pictures and grabbed this Tiny Pocket Tank from the drawer.  You can all live with the wrinkles.  I put lip gloss on,  That is effort.

I made these with some random honeycomb knit from Darn Cheap Fabrics. They are calling it "password" and offering it in about 10 colours.  I used some scuba knit stuff they are calling ponte. The password is $7.95 a metre and the ponte is $19.  I lengthened the pattern at the ankle by 4" just so the ankle wouldn't be that pegged.  I drafted a pattern piece for the hem which was 14 6/8" by 2". I think this makes them look more "I am out to the shops" instead of "I am staying home today".  I omitted the tie just because I didn't want to do button holes in a knit. 

I wore these out to Doncaster! A shopping centre here in Melbourne with designer shops and a fancy attitude.  If any non-Australian readers do not know what tracky dacks are look it up on google or look at this adorable kid wearing trackies for charity.

Yeah these are really cool trackies.......
