Considering how much I love this pattern, I’m surprised I haven’t blogged about it!
I made my original Stella joggers last year (I was one of the testers for this pattern) and I have worn this several times a week ever since!
I can safely say it’s my most worn me-made in my wardrobe!
It even featured in the book itself – Tilly asked if I’d bring them to set to wear with the Frankie tee when we were shooting.
I made them out of a gorgeous and soft French terry from Stoff & Stil and they are just so so comfortable.
But I can’t be wearing the same pair of joggers all the time (because, frankly, they need to get washed every now and then!) so I decided to make a second pair!
I think loungewear (depending on your lifestyle) is definitely worth investing in. At the end of the day it’s something I end up wearing most of the time, especially when I get home from a long day at work.
To that effect, I picked the most fabulous fabric to make my second pair of Stella joggers – the monstera grid print from the Tilly and the Buttons fabric shop.
This vibrant print caught my eye on an Instagram story and I knew I had to have it! It’s unfortunately a bit on the expensive side (at £20/m) so I only snagged a metre and a half. I wasn’t sure exactly what I’d do with it at the time but it ended up being just right for these joggers!
This is a lovely simple satisfying sew – you can definitely do it in a couple of hours or less if you put your head down!
I skipped the leg cuffs in both my versions as I like it to be looser around the ankle.
So whilst I might not be wearing this out and about in public much, I know I’ll end up wearing them at home all the time. I love that I’ll be lounging around in a fabric that makes me happy!
That totally makes it worth all the money!
I’ve kept the leftover scraps to potentially line a hood of a matching Stella hoodie if I ever get round to it!
