Pink Tierras Joggers with zippered ankles ( with a photo tutorial)

The Tierras Joggers from Itch to Stitch patterns, ahh, I could make a hundred of them! Well, I am a little exaggerating but I did make 4 this month so that shows how much I like this pattern. I used to have another pattern for this kind of pants, the Casual trousers from one of the Sewing bee books. But actually, I was not completely happy with that pattern as the rise was really high on me and there was a little too much fabric around my hips. I was planning to get it right for my body one day, but now I have this pattern and I am so very happy with it.

All my thoughts about the pattern I wrote in this post a few weeks ago.

During testing, I saw on the internet, some joggers with zippers at the ankles and I really wanted to try to make some.
Adding the zipper was easy but I wanted also to add elastic and that I had to figure out. In the end that was pretty easy. On Itch to Stitch`s blog, you can find a photo tutorial on how to add zippers to the Tierra's joggers.

This is not my "to go" color, but I think it will be great for spring and summer and the weight and drape were perfect for the metal zippers. I hope I can make a few more of this pants, as the summers are not really hot here and these are so easy to wear.

I love the gold zippers on this pink! Such an easy way to add a little extra.
