I am seeking a pattern for an on trend leisure suit with pants and a top. I dont usually wear leisure suits so would like a pattern that is appropriate to wear for school drop offs etc.
Grateful for any suggestions. Thanks

I'm sorry but I'm a child of the 60's and 70's so had a flashback with the term "leisure suit". Here's my visual...


Seriously, the Jalie Yoga Pants are quite nice. If you choose your size according to measurements they will be very snug but can easily be cut in a bigger size if a tight fit isn't what you're looking for. Any of the Jalie knit tops paired with these pants would be comfy and attractive for errand-running wear.

I've made a couple pairs of the Silhouette Patterns yoga pants and they fit well; I did have to add just a little at center front for tummy. I'm working on adding pockets (cause that's where my keys live!). Very comfortable and flattering pants for me.
