Yoga pants that aren't completely black
Miss Crayola Creepy 7:43 PM Completed project
Let's talk sewing and then yoga, ok? I ordered this ITY knit from Girl Charlee not really 100% sure what I was going to end up with. Sometimes it's difficult for me to know whether fabric will work for a specific project without feeling it in person, but since I only needed a yard I figured that I could gamble on the $6.50 price tag. Good call on my part, it works. We'll see how it feels on my skin when I start sweating though.
The pattern was superrrrr easy to sew up. It's rare, ok, it's never happened, where I can trace a pattern, cut out fabric, AND sew something completely in one evening. No adjustments were made since this is technically a wearable muslin, but I am happy with the outcome. Next time I will take in the waist a bit, as it is a little loose for my liking. Speaking of waist, these "shants" hit at the natural waist which is awesome. I hate low rise workout gear that I constantly have to adjust while switching yoga poses. The fabric is a little baggy on the back of my thighs, but I don't think it bothers me enough to try and fix.
I'm not going to claim that I'm a yoga expert, or even that I'm good at it. I'm the girl in the back of the class struggling to hold poses and the only one who can't do crow pose. But at the end of the hour I am drenched in sweat and feel great. It's also been really cool to see myself make progress and become more flexible. In my first class I could barely sit down with my legs in front of me and touch my toes, but now my wrists touch my toes!
If you're in the area then I highly encourage you to attend one of Niccola's classes and if you're not in the area then I recommend checking out her food blog. She is the best instructor I've had and the ONLY one that my husband will take classes from. It's really hard to pull myself away from my sewing machine, but I'll do it for Niccola yoga :) What about you guys, do any of you do yoga? It's pretty fun making workout gear, I want to make more!
