While I designed the Jasper Joggers with my son in mind, the pattern is also popular with my daughter. The woven jogger is a on trend style for both boys and girls, and is perfect for back to school!
For this pair, I used a super soft stretch twill with a subtle camo print. My daughter loves camo so she was thrilled with this fabric that also happens to be super soft and a ‘pretty colour’. I didn’t make any alterations to the pattern, except for following the size chart and using a size 5 for the width and a size 8 for the length. I followed the rise for the size 5 since she prefers wearing her pants lower on her hips.
The Jasper Joggers come together quickly, and they feature functional front slant pockets and faux welt pockets. For more advanced sewists, feel free to swap them out for real welts.
While the fabric is fun, I was uncertain what to pair it with, but my daughter insisted that her brand new shirt matched, so here they are 🙂 While I’m still not convinced they pair well together, she is pleased, and I guess that is what counts! I used a panel I had been hoarding that was purchased from True North Fabrics. The design was created by another talented fellow Canadian as well. The back of the shirt is sewn from one of the coordinating prints. I haven’t worked much with panels, but I love how they give a real ‘ready to wear’ look to simple tees. I used my tried and true Jalie 2805 for the pattern.
As my girls get older, it seems to be more difficult to please their fashion sense, but this outfit was a win!
