Sarah Liz Exercise Pants

Hi Everyone,

This is my most recently completed project for the sewing your own wardrobe for a year challenge.

These are a very basic pair of elastic waist stretch twill pants - from an OOP pattern ( McCalls 6082).  They are a quick and simple to make basic. And, although they are not fashionable, they are certainly useful for functional activities like this.

Its a pity that this pattern is OOP, but for those of you that want to make something similar, there are a lot of simple elastic waist trouser patterns on the market.  The pattern I used was designed for stretch fabric, so just watch the ease if you buy a pattern for wovens.

So given the challenge, here was an opportunity to make something simple that was too hard to resist.

Some of you have seen my blog post on these pants, and for those of you that haven't that are interested:

Enjoy the challenge

Sarah Liz :)
