note : this is the revised sewalong schedule and information. Due to some issues with my rss feed most people were not able to see my posts for the last week. As a result I moved the sewalong by two days to get everything back in order and reposted this schedule.
In my opinion sewalongs are one of the best parts of sewing with indie patterns. I know that I have learned a lot from watching the people that I look up to sew up their own patterns. I have made close to ten versions of this pant during the drafting / testing phase and have learned a lot during the process. I kinda feel like I could sew them with my eyes shut now. So hopefully this sewalong will help you make the best possible version of the Hudson pants for yourself.

The wonderful online shop Wanderlust fabrics is providing gift cards for her top three favorite versions of the Hudson pant. All you need to do to enter is sew up your pants by Monday July 22nd and either post them on instagram with the hashtag #hudsonsewalong or if you don’t do instagram then just email me a pic with the title hudson sewalong.
