Hello there!

This is the first project I'm posting here on craftster. I'm kind of excited  Grin
(Please bear with me if my English sounds funny. I'm from Germany  Wink )

So may I proudly present: my new yoga pants!

For drafting the pattern I used this tutorial:
http://www.helpster.de/pumphose-naehen-anleitung_29011  (unfortunately only in German)
But I reduced the measurements for the width quite a bit so they wouldn't be too bulky. And instead of just sewing a tunnel and adding elastic at the waist (as the tutorial tells you to), I made a waistband and pleated the fabric of the legs (as you can see in the picture above).

I'm thinking of making an other pair, because these are THE most comfortable pants I've ever had and I wear them around the house pretty much ALL the time!

So, I hope you like them and wish you all a nice day!  Smiley
