MaterialsOversized T-shirt (we used a men’s xl)
Pattern for Adult-size and Kid-size yoga pants
DirectionsStep 1: Lay your T-shirt flat on the table.
Step 2: Place your pattern piece on top of the tee.
Step 3: Cut out your t-shirt according to your pattern and be sure to save the sleeves as you’ll need them later on.
Step 4: Place the two pieces out flat, good sides together. Sew up the armholes which will actually be the crotch of your yoga pants.
Step 5: Grab the center of each side of the tee and pull them away from each other so that what was the center, will then become the sides.
Step 6: Lay out the pieces and match up the legs. Sew them together in one continuous seam. Be sure to back stitch at each end so that they don’t pull apart. You can now turn these right side out.
Note: You can hem if you like, or leave the edge raw. If you do trim them later, just be sure to redo your backstitch so the legs don’t come apart.
Step 7: Trim the sleeves into long rectangles, approximately 6-8″ wide. Make sure you keep one side the finished edge of your sleeve, as this will be the finished edge of your turned down waistband.
Step 8: Place the sleeve pieces together, good side to good side, and trim the waistband to fit, leaving 5/8″ on either side of finished pants to allow for seam allowance. Sew up both sides.
Step 9: Pin waistband: Right side of waistband to wrong side of pants.
Step 10: Sew the pants and waistband together using a zig-zag stitch so that it has some stretch.
Step 11: Put the pants on and fold the waistband down over the top of the pants. Now get moving!
