So flattering! Wish my Burda would get here soon....I'm soooo anxious to try some of their patterns. Perfect fit & neat color, too. ;-)

I made these with a really nice tricot knit from Denver Fabrics but now they are Fashion Fabrics Club (grrr) so it looks like they don't sell it anymore. You can get lycra with wicking properties (like drifit) fabric from or

Nice work. They look more fitted than I would expect from knit. Thanks for sharing.

I love your leisure pants. I have to make them now. I want to find some denim looking knit...and wear them around the house instead of jeans.

Great. Thanks for sewing these yoga pants. I'd like to make some for myself for Pilates class.

I have made this twice and they are the most comfortable pants I own. Mine are in plain jersey knit, but as you said, some performance athletic fabric would be great. (Source ideas anyone?) I LOVE the waist construction -- so comfortable.

Thanks so much for giving that tip about the waistband. I was kind of curious about how they stayed up. Fabulous looking pants.

Cute yoga pants and a great fit.

Thanks for the tip about folding over the waistband. I have these traced, but I shaved quite a bit off that very tall waistband--good to know that the height/folding over is essential for the fit!

Looks fantastic.

Great pants - no need to spend money on that style at all when you can make them yourself for a fraction of the cost!

They fit you to a tee. Great job! I'll add this pattern to my growing to do list because of how they look on you.

Those turned out nicely. This month is one of the few Burda WOF that I own and I was curious about these pants. Good to know they are simple to sew!

my kind of project! yours look great. Sounds like a great way to 'try out' BWOF.

Your yoga pants look great! I want to sew some for my DD.
