My usual outfit for yoga is an old t shirt and my one and only pair of yoga pants. When I commented to my dd that I needed to buy some new yoga clothes she scolded, Mom you must have some fabric in your large stash that would work. She was right. I used a 14oz rayon lycra jersey from Emmaonesock in charcoal for the pants. They are a simple version of my tnt Hot Patterns Razer eliminating the darts and zipper. Instead of using a fold over top I used a separate band, which I prefer for pull on pants, and that's it. Oh, I had to shorten the crotch depth because of the stretch. For the top I used the hot pink 11oz rayon lycra that I mentioned. It looks nice with the gray but I can't for the life of me remember why I bought something so pink. I used Simplicity 4076, a very popular pattern. Mhh. I made the gathered front version when I bought it and also, not my favorite. This is the mock wrap, side gathered top. Also just ok. I don't like where the wrap goes across my bust. The gather is droopy and it hugs my bulges a bit too much in back. I made it longer than usual because I wanted it to keep me covered, so it does that and isn't the most flattering length on me. Ah well, it's only going to yoga class.
Next up is the Hot Patterns plain and simple Princess Shirt. I need a woven! I am tired of sewing knits. I'll probably make it in a white cotton stretch from Paron and to go with it a pair of gray linen and lycra from Emmaonesock for another pair of the Razer pant. I want to copy some details from a pair of pants in February Knipmode to make them more interesting.
You'll notice the hair; it's six weeks and counting since I colored my hair. I'm okay with it but it does look a bit strange right now.
