I was excited to see a yoga pant pattern on Burda, I had to make them! I widened the leg to 24" circumference at the ankle. I also made the buttonholes for the drawstring on the inside of the waist yoke instead of outside, for career-work-wear rather than work-out wear. Because I am 5’7" and Burda patterns are for 5’6", I added 1/2" length to the hip and 1/2" to the leg. Otherwise, I made the pattern as-is. I love the comfort and fit, sizing for this pattern is right on! (I especially appreciate the smooth fit at the hip and crotch…no camel toe!)
I made these pants in one afternoon. Fast and easy to make. I plan to make more! Next I am going to try making them out of a woven fabric, with the wide leg, adjusting for ease and adding an invisible side zipper…Loose and breeze for summer.
Slinky lycra knit I found on sale. These pants cost me just $4.50!
