I found a muslin I made for Silhouette #3400 and tried them on last night. They fit like a dream now.

(My food allergy issues have forced me to the Paleo diet. A side effect is that I am constantly - slowly and steadily - losing weight.)

I made a mistake with my serger sewing on the waistband but it can't be seen unless I tuck in my shirt.

These are more flattering than my jeans. I'd love to wear them out but have no clue what one wears with them. Can I just wear my flip flops and a T shirt? How do you style yours?

eta: I checked google images while searching and was underwhelmed until I saw this:

I've made many of the Silhouette yogas and wear them constantly.

I know some people that wouldn't think of wearing yogas in public but I think there's a couple things that are key to making them look good and not like the typical yogas most people think of. Run on sentence???

Fit- not so skin tight they show every lump, bump and roll.

Tops- I wear Tee's and tunics but made from nicer knits.

Shoes are subjective. LOL I personally don't care for flip flops, even nice leather ones. I do wear sandals or closed toed shoes but something w/a bit of a heel.

One thing that might help is people watching. Go sit in a mall on a busy day and watch. You'll quickly notice things you like and don't like or that look good or don't.

What shoes do you wear with your yoga pants Debbie?

I agree that a looser fit helps. I made these in a beefier ponte and that has helped them skim the lumps and bumps too. I was shocked at how they flatter (or maybe that 2" wide elastic right across my belly is making me feel that they flatter!)

I need to review these.

This company is doing a lot of promoting for its office-appropriate yoga pants. Beta Yoga pants

I wear mine out and about sometimes when running errands or going to the grocery. I just wear my sneakers and a baby tee.

I searched on my beloved "Madame Chic's" website and found this excerpt from an interview she gave:

Quote:
I live in California and unfortunately do have a penchant for wearing yoga pants in public. Is there any possible way to marry this with the Parisian way of life?

Yes. Only wear yoga pants when doing yoga.


I guess she answered my question! The Daily Connoisseur (Jennifer's (author of Madame Chic) blog)

In the winter I tend to wear a lot of ankle boots or shooties.

Summer it's anywhere from a slide sandal, flat ballet shoes to a wedge sandal and more.

That's one of the very reasons I like this pattern. Although I'm thin I have a bit of a high "shelf" to my tummy. The elastic hits right across the fullest part and helps reign it in. LOL

Your madam may say not to wear them but I think styled and fit right who's going to know they're yoga pants unless you tuck the top in. I don't think anybody tucks tops in much anymore.

It's a combination shoe/boot like this courtesy of google images.

I tend to wear them with slightly lower heels that what's shown.

Thanks. Some years ago Dexter shoes had a similar style that I loved, but a more slim line and lower heel.
