Hosh Pants and Aster Cardi

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Let me start by saying how blessed I feel to be able to work with Patty Young and participate in blog tours and other testing here. This is all such a privilege that I do not take lightly. Having said that, it has been a while since I sewed something without a deadline and picked patterns just because. I've seen so many others sew up both of these patterns, and I'm glad I finally got the chance!


The Hosh Pants won me over!! I love the skinny leg, flat front, and elastic back. I used a stretch twill from Joann's for these. I'm dying to buy a little of this and a little of this to make more! The only thing that threw me off about the pattern was the lack of length or height sizing. After measuring and comparing, I went with a 3T and added about 1/2". You can tell it is perfect in the photo above. I think, in her attempts to pose, Tandy pulled the pants down a bit in the photo below. 


The Aster Cardigan was another great sew. I went with a navy and white striped spandex knit and vintage buttons. I'd love to make a few of these for both my daughters! A solid grey and a bright yellow would be on the top of my list. Cheetah print would be fun here too!


I wanted to post outtakes of this photo shoot with Tandy's strange attempts with posing, but I had too many cute ones to include. Maybe I'll have to post the silly stuff on Facebook. I don't know where she gets this stuff!?!

  1. Very cute! I love the color of the pants. I have the Aster Cardigan on my very long list of things to sew.

    Have you sewn the small Fry Skinny Jeans? How do the Hosh pants compare?

    1. I've sewn the Small Fry Skinnys and they are meant as real store bought jeans. There's a lot more work involved since it has pockets and topstitching and a zip fly. The hosh pants are completely different. Really it just comes down to the look you're going for.

    2. @Paisley Roots -- Thanks! I think I was looking at them as they both are skinny pants and no further than that. Thanks for the details :)

    3. I have the Small Fry pattern too, but have yet to try them. I keep getting intimidated by everyone saying they are time consuming!! :)

  3. Adorable! I've got the Aster cardigan on my list, too. Your version is awesome, and I love the combination of navy and white with the green Hosh pants.
