When school began in August, I decided to make some cute yet comfy pants to wear to work. As a pediatric therapist, I spend a good bit of time moving around and even sitting on the floor with the children. I want to look nice, but I can’t be constricted. What I need is some yoga pants that look professional, nothing too tight, and definitely with pockets. The best way to get what I want is to sew it myself. Usually. JoAnn’s has a nice, heavy poly/Lycra knit in a bottom weight. They call it jeggings fabric. I’m not sure why; it isn’t jeans fabric in any form. I bought some and made these pants. It sewed up beautifully. In fact, I loved it so much, I went back and bought more in gray.
I don’t ever wear these with the top tucked in. I just wanted to show the waistband and pocket detailing. The pants have a curved waistband with 1″ wide elastic, no zipper.
The gray pants are cute too. Both are exactly the same and perfect for work.
