I made two sets of this outfit..... so it "was" Doubly Fun to make :))
The first top was really a muslin. I used a stretch fabric, that I love.
It has texture and is like a bathing suit knit.
I made a Size 3 and it was too big so I made the next size down and it was perfect and I just love the fit.
The changes I made were to lower the neckline and I didn't do the detail around the neckline.
I prefer the smaller size however I can wear the one that is on Annabelle.
The Yoga pants are made with a Ponte Knit I bought from Fabricville.
They are both size 6.
The change I made was to the waist. I lowered it by 2-1/4" and oh yes I also made the band slightly wider...finished width of the band is 3 1/4".
I like the feel and the look of this combination better.
(More like lulu lemon style)
The fabric I used for the pants is "ok", but I would love to find some fabric that is really "great" and a really good quality!
Does anyone know where I can find some?
You know like the great fabric lulu lemon uses ;)
I can wish!
Over all I love these two patterns.
The pant style really does look like lulu lemon pants.
I will certainly make them again and my next pants I will have fun changing up the fabric on the waist bands.
Peggy does cover all this in her DVD ~ Yoga Pants - Worn Beyond the Exercise Class.
I loove yoga pants and two pair would be great for me. I'm looking into that pattern.
Very nice! I have not found any realllly great exercise type stretch fabric at my stores that was super great, I think there must surely be a online source but I don't know of it yet!
Peak Fabrics in Calgary... she carries some LuLuLemon fabrics...
PS great tops! And Congratulations on your impending retirement!
PPS Thanks for serving!
Gorgeous! but then I think you'd look amazing in anything Ann! Congratulations on your retirement, and I hopped down to read your husband's comment, and Wow! you've had an amazing career!
A great combo Ann. I still haven't tried Silhouette patterns but intend to in the new year. I'm watching all Peggy's webcasts and learning a lot about fitting.
Merry Christmas by the way. It will be fun for you with little ones around!
