My dream of a neutral Page x Hudson set is complete! It’s been so fun to collaborate with Kelli of True Bias again as we both sewed up a new Page x Hudson set! Make sure to check out Kelli’s blog for more details and a tutorial on ice dying.

If you’re interested in Page pocket templates, you can find them in the shop here as a free download. I’ve updated the neckband files to include the patch and kangaroo pocket templates I used. If you’ve already downloaded the neckband file, your account should have the updated file.

Pattern Adjustments

I made two Pages. I used View B  (with a hem drawstring) for both and added 4″ (10 cm) in length. In retrospect, I probably only needed to add 2″ (5 cm). For reference, I’m 5′ 1″. I just cinched the elastic drawstring tighter for these photos and I’m happy with the oversized look. 

I wanted to try different pocket shapes on each version. I hemmed the top edge of the patch pocket for the ivory Page and then left the raw edges exposed. I also folded up and topstitched the short sleeve with an exposed hem. I added a Kangaroo pocket for the oatmeal Page that matches the Hudsons. The pocket opening is finished with bands similar to this inspo (and how the Hudson pocket edge is finished).

For the Hudsons, I added 1.5″ to the rise (you can find the high-rise Hudson tutorial on Kelli’s blog) and added an elastic hem similar to ready-to-wear joggers I’ve seen. 

Inspiration

We added more inspo to our Page RTW Pinterest board. I hope the additional pocket templates will allow you to get even more looks out of your Page.

Fabric

When planning for this collaboration, I went through my stash and found this excellent oatmeal sweater knit from Surge Fabric, Morraine Double Cashmere.

If you’re like me and want to sew some simple Page x Hudson basics, you can’t go wrong with either of these options.
100% Cotton Sweatshirt Fleece in Heather Grey from Blackbird Fabrics. Blackbird has this cozy fleece available in a variety of neutrals. 
Organic Cotton Spandex French Terry from Isee Fabric. Soft neutrals and a variety of colors are available. 

Do you want to keep sewing simple but add a little something extra to your loungewear? Using a unique textured fabric is a great way to do just that. 
Kelp Banff 1×1 Rib Sweater Knit from Surge Fabric Shop. This thick textured knit looks similar to that of a ready-to-wear sweater. 
Plush Reversible Boucle Fleece in Solid Blush from Stylemaker Fabrics. Think teddy bear but, make it chic in a set made from this boucle knit. 

The Final Look

I am so happy with how these turned out. This was a fun collaboration! It encouraged me to dust off my sewing machine for a fun project using patterns I know I love to wear. Thank you for tagging us in your makes. We’ve loved seeing your sets! It’s so fun to see them pop up on the #pagexhudson hashtag!
