I found some unmarked four-way stretch knit on a sale table--dense stuff, but drapey and very stretchy (probably about 75%). It has good recovery. I really would like to make some yoga or sweat pants but can't seem to find a pattern that would be appropriate. The Jalie yoga pants might work, but they are a little more form fitting than I'm looking for, and I'm not crazy about the seam down the back. Any ideas?

I like Kwik Sew 3115. Try it in something else before you cut into your nice stuff. I've made it in pro-cool, jersey as well as supplex. Once you get the fit right, it is a great wardrobe staple. They have capri length as well. I narrow the leg width on those for my personal preference, but they are great.

I made the pants from V1215 out of black ponte from EOS. They are great....side zip, no waistband, nice fit in the tush but then straight legged all the way down. I lined just the upper 3rd of the pants with a stretch mesh fabric just to smooth things out.

Peggy Sagers Silhouette Patterns has two styles of yoga pants... I bought both of the patterns but have yet to make any.

Check with Style Arc. I know they have a pattern specifically designed for a 4-way stretch woven. Not sure but it might be the Linda pant. If you email Chloe she will tell you.

I have used the Silhouette Yoga Pants pattern several times, with minimal adjustments (a bit of extra room for my tummy), and been happy with the finished pants (4 or so pairs to date).

Thanks for all the good suggestions! I tried the StyleArc's Linda pattern this weekend, testing it in some lavender velour I bought way too much of (oh, online fabric sales, you kill me!) with a similar stretch as the good stuff. Will be good for pajamas, but not quite what I was going for. Or maybe I'm just distracted by the juicy couture look of the velour. I think I'll order the Kwik Sew pattern. This was supposed to be my easy break-from-wedding-dress sewing!
