I titled this post Hudson Pants 1.0 because I’m 99% sure there will be many more versions in my future.

The only change I made was to add 4 inches to the length. When I make these again I am going to skip the drawstring. However, when I tackle the mini version I’m going to keep it. I like the look of it but had trouble putting it in and since I don’t need to tie it to keep the pants up, I don’t find it necessary.

Please take my word for it that they are super comfy and paired with one of my favorite Christmas Presents (sewing machine sweatshirt), it’s one of my favorite outfits!
