Domi Sweatpants ready for Football Season

{Domi Sweatpants Pattern by Sofilantjes}

Perfectly matched with his Seattle Seahawks shirt, these sweatpants are ready for the return of football season.  (yes, I know summer just started, but look how far ahead I am now)  The pants are made from Sofilantjes newest pattern the Domi Sweatpants. Domi is ‘home’ in Dutch, which perfectly describes the easy & comfy wear of these pants.  When Autumn returns, so will football season when my boy will be found lounging around the TV.  The Domi sweatpants are made for Football Sundays.  And pictured here with his Seattle Seahawks shirt, he is ready for kickoff.

To support the pattern release, I tested for Sofilantjes the size 13 long pants.  For my tall and thin boy, I should have selected a smaller size with added length if needed.  I suggest following the pattern’s hip size and inseam measurements to get the right fit for your kids.

The pants are in a navy french terry fabric for the legs, green knit fabric for the pockets, and gray ribbed knit for the waistband, pocket trim, and leg cuffs.  All the fabric is from my local fabric stores.  The drawstring at the waist is a cord wrapped in the navy fabric pulled through buttonholes.  The square pockets are sewn on top of the pant’s legs with a blanket stitch.  This technique for sewing the pockets is new for me and I really like it because it is so simple.  I didn’t have to do a hem or turn under on the pocket – it just gets simply sewn on top of the legs with a fun-but-not-frequently-used stitch on my machine.

The Domi Sweatpants PDF pattern is made to fit boys and girls sizes 12months to 14 years and comes in 3 lengths for year round options: long shorts, hemmed just above the knee; 3/4 length pants, cuffed to fit just below the knee; and, full length pants with cuffs at the ankles.  There are 2 pocket options:  square pocket sewn on top of the pants; and, round pocket sewn inside of the pants and topstitched to the pants.  As with all Sofilantjes Patterns, the instructions are well written with drawings including all the needed information such as fabric requirements and sizing guides for before and after construction.  The pattern is layered so you only print the size needed.  The layered feature not only saves paper, but also makes cutting out the pattern easier because only the lines for the selected sizes are shown.
