A departure from the standard pajama pant is a lovely thing, isn't it? What's even better is a lounge pant that can transition into daily wear. A pant that can take you from the grocery store to the bank, all while being totally comfortable. Hello Hudson Pants. This sewing pattern by True Bias knocks it out of the park. No joke. The urban fit (i.e. roomy hips and thighs with a tapered leg) makes the silhouette of these pants a versatile one. The elastic waistband and cuffed ankles or calves provide ultimate comfiness. Sew these up in a lightweight, drapey woven (be sure to size up!) and you'll be the talk of the town. But you? You'll just be happy you're not wearing trousers.

Love it!!!!

These came together very quickly. I used a medium-wight 4-way stretch knit jersey with contrasting trim in a lightweight rib knit. Next time I won't use such a lightweight material for the trim, but for home lounging these are great. Love the fit. The only modifications I made were: shortened by ~3 in since I am 5 ft 2 in (thanks @sewbon for the tip), and omitting the string (which I now regret!). Will be making several more pairs of these to reduce my fabric storage.

I'm really happy with my Hudson pants. I used a doubleknit blend (rayon, polyester, and spandex). I originally went with an 8 waist, grading out to 12 for my hips, but should have done a straight 8. I guess because my fabric has a lot of stretch it wasn't necessary to grade out, but I went with my hip measurement. For my next pair, I'll go with the 8 for the whole garment. My first pants pattern and it was a success!

Fantastic pattern. Very versatile. excellent illustrations and clear instructions.

Awesome and VERSATILE pattern. You can make knit pants or wovens! I love it!

Excellent, user friendly pattern. My first pant pattern and no camel toe incidents! Cannot recommend the pattern enough, especially with the variations and the sew along on the True Bias website.

I love this pattern. I've made five so far! It's forgiving in size and sewing skills. And it's so trendy and comfy!

If you're looking for a pair of ultra comfy pants that are chic enough to wear for a night on the town, look no further!

A well-written, well thought out pattern that is easy to sew.

Even with my long-torso adjustment, the crotch isn't totally perfect. I'll probably chalk that up to my lack of fitting skills rather than an issue with the pattern, though!

Great instructions. Clear and easy to follow with an added sew-a-long on the True Bias blog.

Kelli of True Bias did a great job on this pattern. It is such a professional looking pattern and the instructions are great! Her directions made it easy to pick the right size and sew these pants up!
