My Faux Jumpsuit – Woven Hudson Joggers & Ogden Cami

IMG_2116.jpg

I’ve been following the jumpsuit trend for awhile and wanting to hop on board. I wanted the look of the jumpsuit, but I was nervous to make it and hate it. So I went with this faux jumpsuit because it’s the look I want, but can also be worn as separates, which I’ve already done. Plus, I already knew I wanted some woven joggers, so if I hated the combo I knew I could just wear and style the joggers separately.

Well turns out I’m obsessed with this combination! I used two patterns I got from Indiesew for this look: Ogden Cami & Hudson Joggers.

The Hudson Joggers, by True Bias, are track pants with a slim fit, wide elastic waistband and an added drawstring. I had seen other sewists turn this knit-fabric pattern into a woven jogger, so I thought I’d give it a go. Some people suggest sizing up on this pattern 2 sizes, if you want a woven jogger. However, I suggest sizing up 3 sizes. Initially I sized up 2 full sizes, but eventually unpicked and added almost all of the available seam allowance into the thigh area, making mine 3 full sizes larger than my measurements on the original pattern.

I found Kelly’s Southport/ Hudson Jumpsuit tutorial a great reference! Check that out here.  For ankle bands, I used one inch elastic and followed the application instructions for the waistband in the original pattern. This worked great!

I’ve loved the shape of the Ogden Cami for awhile now, and it’s just the perfect pair to the Hudson Joggers for this jumpsuit look. I love the slight V-neck and that it’s partially lined. I’ve been wearing it with a shirt underneath or a jean jacket for more coverage.

Okay let’s talk fabric! I used this dreamy sand washed rayon from Raspberry Creek Fabrics in Teal. You can find it here. I’ve also used this Rayon Mauve for another project – this would work great too.

These fabrics from Indiesew would work great too:

Thanks for following along. Do you love this combo? Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them.
