I just finished with my first pair of pants! I needed some looser workout pants because the ones I use now make me feel a little trashy. I wanted something that looked a little yoga-ish even though I don't really take yoga. They turned out just a weeee bit wide legged for my taste. I'm really trying to be much less of a sloppy seamstress and I spend more time per project nowadays. I have such a short attention span that this has been really hard for me. They are made from burnt orange knit jersey and have a twill drawstring with elastic in the back. The little green pocket was more of a last minute thing. I just felt they needed a little extra color. Let me know what you guys think. I really appreciate stories and opinions on cleaner sewing techniques. Thanks.

These are cute, I love the little pocket on them! I definitely think it helps to add color and some personality.

agreed! on a whole it's very cute but the little pocket and button give them an extra...oomph? haha it's really good for a first try and looks like it's completely appropriate

these look great! and the pocket is a super cute detail!! the only thing that would make it look more professsional, imho, would be grommets for the drawstring waistband. it looks like you used vertical button holes on these? a grommet in a matching color or an accent color to match the pocket or button would be really cute. you can't go wrong with a plain silver grommet, either. also, maybe drawstrings on the leg hems since you said it was too wide legged for your tastes? then they could be cinched as well as scrunched up and worn at capri length. i have some sweatpants made like that and i love the versatility Smiley

Man, GREAT ideas. I get tunnel vision on projects occasionally and I would have NEVER thought to put a drawstring in the legs. Thanks guys!

Great! I like the pocket.

It looks like you used a single needle and stitched twice at the waistband. You did a great job, but a twin needle would give a better result. And the stitches stretch a little, and that's really nice for jersey.

i get like that too, sometimes. thank goodness for craftster!!

and i forgot to mention, but you could also just put elastic in the leg hem (like your normal hanes sweatpants) but i suggested a drawstring because having a little bow on each leg is way more fun Smiley
