Up next from the Project Lounge Library pattern collection is the Joseph Joggers. This is a slim fit unisex joggers pattern for kids that uses knit fabrics. The style has side pockets, optional knee panels, and elasticated waist. Expect to see the Joseph Joggers around here a lot!
Special thanks to Kalli June Photography for the beautiful photography of my kids in this post.
We sewed up 3 pairs of Joseph Joggers while we were sewing the Project Lounge Library pattern collection. David scored 2 of them, and Tina got a pair too! All 3 pairs have been in constant rotation around here. This pattern can be sewn in 15 sizes from 12 month to 14 years.
Two of the pairs of Joseph Joggers we sewed were for our Never Leaving Neverland photoshoot. Under her Story Tunic, Tina needed a pair of leggings type garment. So we turned to this pattern. It’s very easy to sew, and a great basic. The instructions are very thorough and include plenty of photo illustrations.
We used the Joseph Joggers pattern, but left off the knee patches to make it a basic pattern. We also went down one size from her measurements to make them even slimmer fitting. This was also because we had chosen to use super stretchy silver metallic lycra lame fabric from CaliFabrics. Tinkerbell had to have some glitter, you know!
David’s pair of Joseph Joggers for the Never Leaving Neverland photoshoot turned out pretty amazing too. We used Treeline in Charcoal and Pebble organic cotton jersey fabric from the Tundra line at Hawthorne Supply Co. This was to amplify the amount of hiding in the woods Peter Pan has to do!
Because the pattern recommends french terry, sweatshirting or a thicker knit fabric, these ended up a little more like pajamas in feel and look. But don’t tell that to David because he’s been wearing them SUPER often! And I’ve got to be honest…I would too!
The final pair of Joseph Joggers we sewed was for David in our Ode to Eric Carle. This is one of the few fabrics from the entire photoshoot that was not up cycled from a sheet or other piece of clothing! Like David’s George Hoodie, this is white French Terry from CaliFabrics. We made sure to give him the optional double knee patches on this pair of Joseph Joggers, and we’re pretty convinced we’re going to put knee patches in all the pants we sew for him from now on!
