Wow, it’s finally here and I am so excited!  If you have been following me closely on instagram or this blog you may be aware that I have been working on this pattern for the last few months.  A lot of love and a lot of hard work has gone into the Hudson Pant and I am so excited to finally be sharing it with all of you.

When I was thinking about what I wanted my first True Bias pattern to be I knew that I wanted something that was true to my style and what I want to wear in my everyday life.  I can honestly say that the Hudson Pant fits that perfectly (in fact I am wearing a pair right now as I am typing this post).  As a mom of two young kids living in a big city I find myself constantly being torn between wanting the comfort of doing chores around the house and the desire to feel put together so I can run to the corner store or a play date at the park.  The Hudson Pant really fits that description.

I named the pattern after the neighborhood that I live in.  My small family moved to this slower paced and much more relaxed northern section of Manhattan a couple of years ago and the Hudson river runs just a few blocks from our apartment.  I love the easy, urban vibe of our neighborhood and it’s the kind of place where I want to wear my Hudson Pants all of the time.  I feel confident that most women will also find that they reach for these pants over and over again for everyday wear and comfort.
