Yoga Pants, Shorts, Shorts, and More Shorts

Actually, I should call them Pilates shorts and pants, since that's my exercise of choice. Either way, in cotton/lycra jersey or rib knit (the gray), they're super comfy and very quick to make. That's why I made several pairs of shorts, which is more than strictly necessary.

I employed the smooth waistband technique I mentioned before. I find the wide, firm elastic cut to the exact measurement of the waist at that point to be more comfortable than thinner elastic cut with negative ease.

I cut the shorts pattern from the pants pattern, but flared the leg hems just a little.

The fit is slim (hence the use of lycra) and there is a very slight bootleg cut.

I love these - the fit is closer to what I wanted than what I got from the BurdaStyle download Corinne Yoga Pants.

Pattern: Jazz Pants (Ottobre 1-2008-5)
Cotton lycra jerseys: Mill End Textiles (black) and Chez Ami (blue)


  1. Great work, and saved yourself a bundle!

  2. I admire people who can 'mass-produce'. I don't think I have the attention span. Great workout clothes.

  3. Great job making multiple pairs like this. I always enjoy having more than just one of something I love to wear, but often don't make more than one. You are an inspiration :)


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
