I’m working from the pattern Burda 8187 which includes 3 styles on athletic workout pants/shorts. I’ve made them before with a ribbed knit, but didn’t buy enough fabric, so they are now long shorts.
I completed the long work out pants and made a few changes/cheats. I didn’t add the ribbon, as I found it pretty hard & took some time. Also, I didn’t quite understand the sizing & fit so the size I made fits very close to the body so it would be hard to wear anything underneath which I like to do sometimes. Due to the fit, I didn’t bother using a drawstring as the elastic works fine on it’s own.
I will definitely use this pattern again in a larger size and also include the ribbons on the side.
