If matching jogger sets are wrong, I don’t wanna be right. I used my new favorite kid’s jogger pattern, the Mini Hudson Pant Pattern, and my long time favorite girl’s dolman top pattern, our Skipper Top Pattern, to sew up this DIY jogger set for Lola, and today’s post has all the details!
I snagged some of this animal print french terry and solid oatmeal french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics (aff link) several months ago, and while my original plan was to use our free pattern to make myself a cowl neck sweater with it, I ended up with extra yardage due to flaws, and was able to sneak these pieces between the flaws for Lola’s DIY jogger set.
I’ve said it before, but Raspberry Creek Fabrics really has the best customer service. My projects using their fabric aren’t sponsored, I’m just a really big fan.
I also used the same fabric with our free footed baby pants pattern to make these itty bitty pants. All three prints are from Raspberry Creek’s oatmeal french terry line (usually the oatmeal solid and prints restock in the Fall!).
Earlier I shared the camo jogger set I made for Hattie with the same girl’s dolman top pattern, the Skipper Top pattern, and kid’s jogger pants pattern, the True Bias’ Mini Hudson Pant pattern, but varied the options with each so my girls could have similar but not totally twinning DIY jogger outfits.
I feel like the only thing that’s missing now is a matching set for me… I already have a pair of Hudson shorts out of camo french terry, and our women’s dolman top pattern, the Seafarer Top, would complete the look. The girls might draw the line at matching with each other though, lol!
Girl’s Dolman Top Pattern
I also used the heart pocket instead of the square pocket, but just sewed it on like a patch instead of leaving the top open for a pocket.
To make a front tuck work well, I opted for the regular curved hem rather than the banded hem.
If you’re curious, I made the same sizes of the girl’s dolman top pattern and kid’s jogger pants pattern for both jogger sets I made my girls. They’re two years apart but exactly the same height, and although their circumferences differ a size or so, they share all the same clothes!
It’s pretty handy, and it also actually makes sewing more fun, because chances are that if one girl doesn’t like what I made, the other one will (which also equals less fighting over the said clothes).
Kid’s Jogger Pants Pattern
The Mini Hudson Pant pattern from True Bias is such a pleasure to sew up, and after making my first two versions, we have plans to make shorts versions next for my girls.
I opted for the cropped length, and they’re perfect for running around all summer and hopefully into the fall as well.
Once again, I used the solid oatmeal french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics for the pocket trim, waistband, and leg cuffs.
They’re the perfect DIY jogger pattern with or without the matching top, and you really can’t get much more comfy than a good pair of joggers!
