Warm Pants for Work

December 15, 2006

I needed some new nice workout wear for work, had some velour on sale, and voila! a project. First up, pants. This is from a Burda WOF pattern, 3/2006. I’ve made it once before… also for work pants.

I like the leg width, but was astonished at how big the waist was — I took in center front by about 2 inches and center back by about 6! I remember doing a little crotch tweaking with the previous pair, but nothing like this. The velour must be stretchier?

I do love the ability to sew… look at how badly my uniform shirt fits and how nicely the pants fall on the side:


And this is after being worn for a full shift! Very comfy.

Next up, a jacket in the same velour, then pants and a jacket in a coordinating lighter plum.
