Cessatio: a new jogger for both boys and girls

Sofilantjes has released a new pants pattern: the Cessatio jogger.* It has such cool options, that it is hard to choose which to make first. I tested this pattern and made four versions for Little Mr SieBe and two for Miss SieBe up until now. And I already have quite a few ideas for some more pairs.

Here I will present the ones that I made in the final stages of the test, and tell more about the options. I will start with Little Mr SieBe’s Cessatio.

As you can see in the pictures, the Cessatio jogger has a light baggy fit. I used French Terry which is the fabric this pattern is drafted for. This pair has the straight waistband with the optional drawstrings. It has front pockets, and a faux fly, which are both optional as well. I made the bands out of main fabric, but the pattern also has the option to use ribbing for these parts (separate pattern pieces!).

The pattern has two pocket options, but on this pair I chose to use the pocket of the Brevis. The pockets of the Cessatio are easily interchangable with those of the Beatum and the Brevis, so the already many options can even be multiplied!

And, not unimportant, the joggers can be combined with almost all top patterns from Sofilantjes. For Little Mr SieBe I made a matching Velocitas hoodie*.

Now it is time for Miss SieBe to show her Cessatio joggers. For her I chose the girly options the pattern has, and I love the result so much, I would like to have a similar pair for myself.

This pair has a special waistband with a ruffle and a sash. I chose to make front pockets again, and on the back I chose the faux welt pockets. Those seemed intimidating to me at first, so I tried it out on a scrap. It was much easier than I expected, so I am happy I tried, because I love the result!

I love the fit of this pattern. It is somewhat relaxed without becoming too baggy. Of course, if you want it more or less baggy, you can size up or down. I did that with the other pair I made Miss SieBe. Those I made one size larger both in length as in width, because they are meant to be worn as pyjama pants. I used ribbing bands on that one. In that way, they stay at her ancles, so that the extra length doesn’t bother her, but gives her room to grow.

For Miss SieBe, I also used a pattern from Sofilantjes for the matching top: the Otium sweater*. With such an eye-catching pair of pants, the top didn’t need much, so I kept it simple, with a solid red fabric and a nice blue bow detail in the back.

The Cessatio is on sale for €5,50 – excluding taxes, no code needed. Release sale will end October 19, 08.00 CET. It is available in three languages. These are my aff links (thank you!):
