This is Marta and I’m here to talk Holiday fashion. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays? Being able to eat the most amount of food while staying comfortable and not busting out of your clothes of course!
If you’re like me and struggle every year trying to decide what to wear so you can be fancy and comfortable; I have the solution for you. Enter: The Carita Joggers. You might be thinking; “But how can joggers be fancy?!” Well, we all know that it’s all about the fabric. Fabric choice is very important in getting the look and fit that you want. I decided that I wanted a tighter jogger that was a bit more formal so I chose this dark grey stretch velour. I bought it at Wal-Mart last year for $1.50 a yard!!!
It has great 2 way stretch but only mechanical stretch the other way so I stayed with my regular size to achieve the tighter fit. For a looser fit I would size up.
I dug through my stash and found this sparkly elastic. I bought the gold and silver at Hobby Lobby a while ago and finally had a chance to use it.
It was just what I needed to add a little extra something, something to my joggers.
The joggers were a super fast sew and I was able to do everything from printing to finishing in one night. And, voila! Some fancy, and super comfy joggers to take me through the Holiday season.
I paired them with this maternity tank that I’m still wearing even though my youngest child is 4 years old, but I think I’ll make a Bali Blouse with a stretch lace Sunset Cami underneath for next time.
I hope that you all have a fantastic Holiday season filled with love, laughter, family, and of course, lots of great food!
