Color makes you happy; winter doesn’t have much color; ergo, all my projects have been rainbow since November–even the thread:

This is a pair of Greentstyle Creations Brassie Joggers for the gym in a “rainbow faux knit” athletic from The Styled Magnolia.

The Brassies are definitely pants, not tights, but they are much, much sleeker than the True Bias Hudson Pants, with a flatter front, higher rise, and better “rear view.” They also sew up in about an hour and don’t require any fiddly topstitching.

I ended up trying this pattern because my fabric didn’t have quite enough stretch for my preferred tights pattern, but I really love it. I’ve already made two more pairs–one for around the house and one in a print to wear to work (stretch pants 4EVA!).
