Just Jeans Blog Tour: Phresh Jeggings



Thanks, Suzanne, for having me along to blog about the Phresh Jeggings today!
I've been trying to sew patterns I own for a while and use up some fabric stash while I'm at it. I've had this great black jegging knit for about a year now, and the Phresh Jeggings were perfect. Faux front pockets, real back ones, a yoke and faux fly - they're actually a pretty quick sew, especially with a knit fabric!


See, along with my stash busting I've been also trying to make sure I don't make "orphans" for the girls' wardrobes...you know the ones. That top or crazy pair of shorts in the super fun print that you had to have - but goes with nothing. Solid color tees and leggings are just not a staple around here, though they should be, and a basic black jegging is a great place to begin for any outfit!

I made a size 10 for the waist, and as you can see, she's got some growing room in the legs. I even shortened them, but clearly not enough. ;) No matter. These are easy wearing, and can be rolled or cuffed and still look great until she grows some more (which no doubt will happen when I'm not looking!)


This pattern has a range from 18m - 14y, so you can use it for a good long time. You can use a true stretch denim (minimum 20% stretch) or jegging knit like these, and the waistband can be self fabric or comfy cotton spandex. This fabric is a good mix of the two - not quite as stretchy but just as soft as cotton spandex, but with the look of denim - they'd look great with all the topstitching/rivets bells and whistles of the real thing, too! Best of both worlds.


The Just Jeans Blog Tour starts today and goes through the week, so make sure you follow along for some fun takes on the Phresh Jeggings, Real Deal Jeans, and Sk8 Skinnies from Winter Wear Designs!
