I wish yoga class was as easy

I’m not sure, but I believe that I could be a trendsetter. I think these pants are the color Pantone has chosen as the color for 2008.

I finished my yoga pants! These took less than one hour to actually construct. Include the cutting and tracing time, *maybe* two hours. They are so simple. And with the knit I had, I didn’t even bother serging the insides. Quite frankly, I’m not sure I even pressed as I went.


A couple of points if you are considering making these from the November 2007 BWOF (these are #122). First, if you usually need to make a sway back adjustment, these are no different even though they are knit. I made a one inch adjustment in the back and a one inch adjustment in the fold-over waistband.


Second, I made a 38 — my usual size and graded to a 40 at the thigh. If you want a snug fit, you’ll want to size down. They are a bit more wide legged then they appear in the line drawing. I love that, but you may not.

I should say when I last went to yoga two weeks ago, I was DYING. It was super hard and I was miserable for 90 long painful hot, hot yoga minutes. Yoga hard. Yoga pants easy.

Oh, Victoria’s Secret has a similar style for $29. Mine, $12.
