Yoga Pants and Other Sporty Things

Any short readers out there? If so, you know what it's like to find a perfectly good pair of pants and then watch in frustration as the end lays in puddles on your feet! That's what gave me the idea for these uber cute yoga pants!
Whether at class or just lounging around in the house (and doing other sporty things haha) I'll be in style! Here's the shoot, done with my Dad's new D-SLR camera. See the difference?
 If you like, you may skip down the page to see the tutorial on how to make some just like mine!

To Make Your Perfect Pair:
     Grab a pair of good fitting pants or a 2 piece leggings pattern. Don't worry; we will alter it later.
For this project. you will need about a yard to  a yard and a quarter (depending on your size) to make these.
     To alter your leggings pattern, measure your inseam length (or were you want the pants to fall), the length of your thigh at the highest point before your crotch, mid-thigh, and knee. Make sure the leggings pattern corresponds to this. Next, make a V out to the edge of your pattern, starting at the knee. For a Size XS (Juniors 0) make the bottom of the V (the leg opening) 18 inches long. For an S (Juniors 2) make the V 20 inches, etc. Add one inch to hem and then sew according to your pattern!
    Wah-lah! New Yoga Pants

Sewing in the new year! (January Week 2 Pattern Post)

My New Year's Resolutions:
1. Sew
2. Update Blog
3. Sew
4.Update Blog
5. Etc. :)
Well, after getting a new laptop for christmas, I am back on the world wide web. Yesterday, in a flurry of crafting, I made myself some yoga pants- they fit perfectly! As for now, however, how about getting a couple of new garments sewn to welcome in the new year? I don't know about you, but spring means dances. Proms, Graduation, Spring Flings.(Okay, fine, we don't have proms in junior high and they don't exactly call our spring socials "flings") My mind is bubbling with ideas to sew and wear! This pattern is not on the topic of dances, however- but it's cute none the less!
