I love sales & fell for the one at MillYardage. Seconds are more cost effective for me & I got an additional 20% off over 5yd cuts. I ended up with 10 years of black powerdry & 5 yds of https://www.millyardage.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=9110-9822-jersey/shearling grid. I was going to use it to make 2 blankets but it is lighter than I wanted. Tried on a top from Sears here:
https://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_033VA66044812P & found they used the gridded jersey.
Could I used either or both to make Linda Stretch pants? I am reluctant to just cut as 1) I have gained inches & 2) the stretch denim did not work.
I am not concerned with either being too hot--I am usually cold.

The Linda pants need a fabric with recovery. Does your powerdry have lycra? Most of the powerdry I've seen would be better suited for a looser pant, maybe something with a drawstring.

The fabric states it is mesh with stretch. Does seem like it has at least 30% or more stretch.
ETA: It is Powerdry, not PowderDry to clarify fabric.

A fabric can have stretch without recovery. Cotton interlock is a good example, it has 50% stretch and no recovery. If the interlock is a lycra blend it has recovery.
