Jalie Yoga Pant 3022, Size S
removed 2 inches from the length
Ottobre 5/2013 #4A, Size 36
I am really loving these yoga pants. I made a pair for my daughter here. This time around, knowing the pattern, I put these together much quicker. I assembled all seams with my serger and had my sewing machine set up with a twin needle (2.5). This way I could just slide between machines. I used black thread for the top stitching.
I think the real selling feature of this pattern is the two-piece back pant leg.
There is an upper and lower waistband piece, as well as a waistband facing. 3/8" elastic is used in the top of the band, which gives you a nice secure fit.
For my top, I used Ottobre's "Monday Basic raglan-T-shirt pattern. I chose this pattern because of the shoulder dart, which I thought was a little different than other raglan t-shirt patterns I have seen. Plus I already had this pattern in hand. :)
Ugh, I guess I better figure out how to make the sway back adjustment--a lot of fabric pooling at my mid back. I know I have a book on that somewhere.
Before hemming the sleeves and bottom of the shirt, I tried it on...thankfully. It would have been a little too short for my liking. I added sleeve bands, which I cut at 3 inches and the bottom band at 5 inches.
(looks like I have some thread fuzz on the bottom of my shirt there) With my little photographers, they don't know to "fix" anything before snapping the picture! ha ha
I love the pants but I'm just meh on the top. I won't sew it up again. It just doesn't wow me. It will be good for just a knock around top.
My hair is looking a little red. I tried chestnut brown since the store was out of the color I like. Boy was it really red for a couple of weeks. Now it has calmed down a little.
