So I recently started going to Zumba (and LOVE it!) but I'm typically used to going to the gym in ugly shorts and a baggy T shirt.  Everyone else in my class wears those cute yoga pants/spandex leggings that as a graduate student I can't afford.

So I went to Goodwill and got a Men's Tshirt that was awful ugly in pattern by itself and made these!  I should have taken a before picture, but I really thought there was NO way they would turn out useful at all.

next time I'll make a wider waist band and get a stretchier shirt, but I'm not sure how well these will hold up, but enough talking!

Let me know what you think!

Super cute! Any advice on how you did it?

Oh yeah!! I forgot to include it!

I followed this tutorial for making them, it was much easier than I thought!


at the end I ended up fitting them a little better to myself, bc the hips were oddly shaped, but it could be bc I didnt' sew in a straight line lol

Hi.  I've been taking a SENIOR Zumba class called ZUMBA GOLD and now I wish I could sew.  The pants are great, particularly the rear where all the Zumbal action is.  Good recon!  CMV

Haha, I joined a Zumba class last week and didn't have any "workout" clothes so I did the same thing with a t-shirt left over from VBS!  I think mine are the same color blue!  Great minds think alike!

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!
