I needed a pair of stretch and comfortable trousers for exercising in, so I decided to make those instead. I don't like yoga pants as they tend to fall down on me with my straight build. I need things firmly anchored at the waist. So I made a pair of elastic waist trousers from an old Palmer Pletsch out of print pattern.
I made them out of stretch cotton twill that had been having a good old snooze in my stash for some time.
I didn't spend much time fitting them as they are really not "going out" trousers. It really was cut, sew and go.
Which was all I had time for this week in any case.
And here they are in action:
|Pants stay up|
|Pants allow movement|
|Lots of room to move.|
|Just add shoes for walking.|
And, as I can't really tell the front from the back easily - without checking crotch lengths - I put a little thread marker in the back of the pants so I can easily see which way to put them on.
Every little helps when you are dressing in a hurry!
Have a good sewing weekend, wherever you are.
