Matching jogger sets are so popular right now, and anytime a trend marries comfort with style, you know I’m in 1000%. I recently sewed DIY dolman top and jogger pant sets for both of my girls, and today I’m sharing Hattie’s, made with the Mini Hudson Pant Pattern and our Skipper Top Pattern.
It’s the perfect outfit for all of a 6 year old’s shenanigans.
You already know my love for Raspberry Creek fabrics french terry (aff link), and luckily I snagged some of my favorite camo as well as some solid oatmeal a few months ago before it went out of stock for the summer (it should be back in the Fall!).
I purchase the vast majority of my fabrics from Raspberry Creek Fabrics, and other than their french terry, their swim knits are my next favorites!
Of course that wasn’t all I ordered (duh), and here’s a sneak peak of the animal print french terry I used for Lola’s set.
I needed some fun sewing (AKA no masks ;)), and this girl’s dolman top pattern and jogger pants pattern set fit the bill.
Top-knots are a constant in our house, especially in the summer, and it’s a perfect way to wear our DIY scrunchies! If your daughter doesn’t have quite as much hair, our mini bow scrunchies might be even better.
Girl’s Dolman Top Pattern
I’ve never used french terry with the Skipper Top pattern before, because it hadn’t even occurred to me to try. Cotton lycra has been my go-to, like I most recently used for these versions. But now I’m kicking myself because I love how it gives this DIY dolman top a little more body, while still being cool enough for our Seattle summers.
For Hattie’s top, I opted for no sleeve bands, and used the solid oatmeal for the pocket and neckband.
I also sized up to give this girl’s dolman top pattern a slightly more relaxed feel.
This photo shoot happened to come at a perfect time, as days later Hattie lost her first top front tooth. And while I can’t get over the adorableness of her now missing front tooth and new cute lisp, I’m so glad we captured these last moments before those new big teeth make an appearance. It always makes kids look so much more grown up!
Kid’s Jogger Pants Pattern
This was my first time sewing the True Bias Mini Hudson Pant, although it had been on my list for literally years. I’ve sewn the adult version a couple of times (including a matching pair of camo shorts that are hopefully soon to be blogged – I just need to make a matching Seafarer Top so I can have my own jogger set!), and the kids version was just as great. Maybe even a bit more as they’re even quicker to sew up ;).
They’re the perfect mix of fitted yet roomy in all the right places, and the straight size 7 gave my girls the exact fit I was hoping for. It’s definitely my new favorite kids jogger pattern.
I used my coverstitch to topstitch the pockets in place and give a little extra front detail.
Hattie loves the pockets and almost always has one or two hands in them.
I had to make a rule that Hattie’s not allowed to wear this Mini Hudson Pant and Skipper Top DIY jogger set to bed, which I feel slightly bad about, but otherwise she’d literally never take it off. It’s just too cozy!
