Lately, my selfish sewing has taken the form of comfort sewing. Or sewing comfortable clothes.
I feel like I’m always running in busy mode, especially in the summer…running errands, soooo many errands, working from home, playing with the kids, and taking them to the beach as much as possible before school starts, that it’s just nice to have something cute and comfy to wear through allllll of that.
If I’m not wearing sneakers and jeans, I’m often wearing sneakers and Hudson pants. I love love the first pair of Hudson Pants I sewed up, so I figured I probably should make a bunch more so I can basically live in them. 🙂
I decided to try them out in this awesome floral print I adore from Girl Charlee. Funny story. I actually bought this fabric twice on accident. ha! I bought it to make Nat’s dress here, then saw it a week later, did NOT realize it was not just a similar print but the EXACT same print, and then ordered it again. I wasn’t kidding when I said I liked it. 😉 (Note: You guys must have liked it too, because they are out of it! Sorry I don’t have a direct link. This floral is a Ponte De Roma if that helps you find an alternate print.)
I love how the fabric dresses up the pants a little and makes them feel less…sweat… pants-y.
The floral pattern is a bit big and bold, which is actually not ideal for pants because it’s not really slimming, but it’s such a pretty floral I decided to just go for it anyway. I’ve got a bunch more Hudsons coming down the queue that are a lot more tame. I figured I should have at least one seize the day version. 🙂
To round out my comfy momiform, I got these new Converse slip on Chuck Taylors from Famous Footwear.
LOVE them!!! I actually got them in white and red because I love the fit so much. There is elastic at the heel, so there’s no need to tie laces, and they are cute cute! They are quickly becoming my go to shoes.
There is only a short window of time when sandals are actually a necessity here in this part of the PNW, so I love that these shoes keep me comfy and warm, but are easy enough to kick off at the beach if it’s hot enough.
If you can’t tell from my instagram feed (@deliacreates) we are a bit beach obsessed. I’ve made it my personal mission to get these kids to the beach as much as possible before school starts again.
I grew up in the desert so it’s really fun to see my kids growing up to be a bunch of beach babes and have a childhood that I could only dream of. My youngest especially loves the beach. It’s crazy to think that she’ll probably only remember living here and that she’ll grow up thinking it’s totally normal being able to go to a different beach every weekend. Tsk. Lucky chick.

so beautiful Delia! Love the hudson pants and of course the shoes. I mostly love the beach pics! I would definitely be the one going to the beach as much as possible before school, too!
You are so cute! I have a sis-in-law who adores Converse- and they do look really comfortable!
love it Delia!! You are adorable. I’m hoping to lose a little more baby weight before I start sewing pants, but it’s awfully tempting!!!
arg Delia you’re the cutest!! i love this outfit so much. actually i already have the shoes/tee/cardi, so apparently i need to sew me up some floral hudson pants!

This is so funny… I just blogged about my momiform a week or so ago and the pants I used for the jumpsuit (go to knit pants view B, ankle length) are basically the same. I’d love to see what other colors/patterns you try. I’ve stuck to black so far, but your floral ones are great!
Thanks Kristi! Your jumpsuit is so cute! I love how you combined the patterns.
I must have a pair of these pants. How can I place an order???
Thanks Marilyn! Sorry, but I sewed them myself and I don’t do custom orders. Have you considered hiring a seamstress?
super cute. the pants are flattering on you an fun… your style is something that can be achieved for those on a budget… thanks for sharing your outing and cute outfit

i love the combination of the floral Hudson pants with the white converse! I own the white converse as well. I would love a pair of the floral Hudson pants too. Where can I go online to purchase. Thank you
Thank you! I am so sorry but they are not available online. I made them myself using fabric from Girl Charlee and the True Bias Hudson Pants Pattern.

Hi, I saw your pants on the Famous Footwear Facebook post and fell in love I have been searching high and low for them. Do you sell them? The black floral ones?
Thank you so much! I don’t sell them. I just sewed that one pair. Sorry about that!
Do you know if the floral print fabric is still being sold? I can’t find it anywhere and I just really love it. If not would a jersey knit fabric work as well?
If I were to get a fabric with stops how much extra fabric would I need for matching stripes?
I am so sorry to say I think they discontinued it. 🙁 You might want to see what Girl Charlee has right now though. I think they have some new florals that might work. For stripes, I think you might be okay with the recommended yardage. I just made some striped ones and didn’t have to get extra to match stripes. I hope that helps!
