Joggers are not actually for jogging

As the Girl’s gym teacher learned when he was trying to talk her into joining the track team.  He was pushing hard, too.

“Uh, yeah, no…running isn’t really my thing.”

You can, though, still look cute in them.

These are the Rumba Joggers from Rogue Patterns, set to release tomorrow.  They come in a huge size range (0-30), and she worked really hard to make sure it fit across the different body size spectrums.

I made them out of the Electric Lime supplex from Zenith & Quasar fabrics.  You need a pretty stretchy fabric for the waist, so make sure you pick that one wisely.

They were quick to sew up (about 1.5hrs including pattern taping to finishing).

The top is one I drafted, and need to revisit where it crosses in the front.  A few inches lower would make her more comfortable.  This is from Z&Q, too, and is a brushed poly print.

It looks like pictures before school are going to have to wait until spring again.  The sun was barely over the horizon, so the pictures are soft and grainy.  She gets on the bus in the 7am timeframe, so we are losing light now.

I’m not ready for the dark days of winter!  But winter is coming…yes, I went there. 😉
