Doubly Fun !!

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.

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!

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!
