A new release from Sofilantjes*: the Stricta Skinny Jogger*! It released together with the Flora Flared Pants*. Two new pants patterns with lots of options. Enough for a wardrobe full of varied pants. In this post I will tell about the Stricta. My next blog post, about the Flora, will follow soon after this one, so stay tuned!

Up until now, I have made five Stricta’s. Four for Little Mr SieBe, and one for Miss SieBe. I will show three of them and a detail of a fourth, the second I made. I didn’t make all the options, but I love the options that are included in the pattern. The pattern has two, actually three, length options: long, 7/8, and 3/4 as add-on option. I have made only long ones. Eventually, they might become 7/8 after a while ;). Other options I didn’t make are the split and zipper.

I will start showing the joggers I made Little Mr SieBe. I chose for a jeans look French Terry in ochre/yellow I bought from Hip & Eigenwijs. I made front pockets, the faux fly, a color block backpocket, and yoga waistband. Last but not least, I used the bikerparts from the tip section. These were added in a later stage of the test as an extra present from the designer. So cool! Love this option so much!

I made pintucks on the bikerparts, and also on one part of the backpocket. I screen printed two very small lightnings. These extra details match the lightning in the Potens Sweater*, which I hacked to add a hood. Little Mr SieBe asked for it. He is really into hoods these days! The also asked for two pockets, but I decided that the pockets in his Stricta should be enough for now.

Did you see the front pockets above?

This is such a fun detail of this pattern with the two crossing bands. I like the look of two different colors for these bands, which I chose for on my first two Stricta’s.

I just have to show this.

Before the yellow Stricta, I made a grey one, also in jeans look French Terry (which I bought from Senza Limits), and with bikerparts. Also for this one I made pintucks on the bikerparts. The bikerparts are a little different from the ones that are part of the final pattern, but cool as well! And the fit is just like in the final pattern, so this one is absolutely worth showing. I made an Omni Tempore* (currently in the sale!) for him to wear on this Stricta.

I made this one with pocket facing, instead of topstiching the pocket to the pants. This didn’t work out very well without the bands, we found out as testers, so I stiched it partly to the jogger. That’s fine for this one, but I won’t use the facing without. To resemble the bikerparts, I added some pintucks to the back pocket as well. This one has a regular waistband.

After two and a detail that I showed already, we’ve come to the last Stricta that I will show in this blog. The one I made for Miss SieBe. This is a plain one, without front pockets. I added the backpockets of the Flora Flared Pants. Nice to know: most backpockets from the Sofilantjes pants patterns can be exchanged!

I used a bengaline stretch fabric (from Textielstad) for this one. I complemented it with a Nivalis* tunic. The stricta is definitely not a legging, but can very well be combined with tunics. Inside it is all black and white, when the sun shines many colors will pop up on the tunic.

Ok, I think I have showed and told enough about Stricta. Now it is your turn to start sewing. The pattern is available in three languages. It is on sale until March 22, 8.00 CET for EUR 5,51 ex taxes.
