Pattern Description:
Yoga pants (A) that are fitted through the hips and thighs and slightly flared from the knee down. The wide faced two-piece waistband allows for fun color blocking. A seam at the back of the leg provides flattering fit and easy adjustment. The shorts (B) are great for the beach or for dance or gym practice.
Pattern Sizing:
Children's through US size 22. I made woman's size S
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much, although I made a different waistband.

Side View

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Fairly. I don't like that the instructions and pictures are on separate pieces of paper. I also did not refer to them much, and did not follow them for the waistband. For this pattern, someone who has sewn pants before would probably be able to construct them using only the pictures.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pattern is very easy to sew, and as other reviewers have said, the seam down the back of the legs makes for easy fitting adjustments. I personally made no adjustments, as the fabric I used is super stretchy and forgiving. The pants have a low rise (think American Eagle RTW), which I like. I thought that the seam up the back of the legs would be uncomfortable, but it is not!

Fabric Used:

stretch (very stretchy) Sew Classics Spandex Knits from JoAnns. It is pretty thin, but extremely soft and comfortable.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I changed how I made the waistband. I cut out the lower band and sewed it to the pants. I then used the length of the interfacing to make a wide strip of fabric. I sewed one side to the waistband, then folded it over and sewed the other side to the waistband/ pants seam.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, and yes! I sewed the first seam using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine (Elna) with a regular presser foot, but the seam was all wavy. I put the walking foot on and used that with a zigzag stitch, and it worked perfectly! May go over the seams again with a stretch strait stitch as they recommend in the Jalie video

Quick to sew, flattering, and super comfortable! May sew again using slightly more substantial fabric.

Note: Pants were not hemmed when I took the pictures.

Wow, the rise is really low on this pattern. You don't have muffin top, though, so they look great on you! Very nice, it looks like the pattern envelope.

Thank you! You can pretty much adjust the rise by how wide you make the waistbands, and the fabric is so stretchy that I think they would fit me pretty well even if I made the wrong size!

Nice yoga pants, and they are flattering. I'd have to add a bit to the rise :-)

Very nice job. I use the older Jalie yoga pant pattern but this one looks enticing.
