I've said I would never make workout clothes but your yoga pants are changing my mind. These are great!

They look wonderful Barb! I like this pattern, too, but found they ran extremely small. After two muslins to discover what size to use, I lost interest and went on to a different focus. You are inspiring me to return to this pattern!

They look great. And I love the idea of making them up in french terry.

Cool looking pants, Barb! It was a very nice bonus to see you model the pants with a "yoga" pose.
