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!

  1. These are so cute! I have SO much trouble since I'm athletic so I'm so very blessed with great big thighs (I swear its mostly muscle!) but I also happen to be only 5'0. That's not a great combo for finding pants that fit and still look attractive. I might just HAVE to try this! Thank you so much for the idea and directions!

  2. Those are really great! Thanks for providing the instructions to make it - might spur me on to get a yoga mat too. If you like yoga you should try pilates too, it's really fun as well! :)

  5. I am looking for Lululemon online stores to buy clothes, but many sites don’t show up the prices of clothes. So, is there any website who gives all details like price, size and discounted range? Please share.

  6. When you are doing yoga, it is important to have the correct apparel to move more freely. That why why so many people wear this yoga apparel. Plus, it does not matter what age you are either, having that freedom of movement is very important. A lot of people even wear this apparel even when they are not doing yoga too, because it is that comfortable to wear.
