Yes! I am doing quite well this year, so far! Part of my #makenine2019 challenge was some casual yoga-type pants. This seemed to become more urgent on the list, as I wore out most of my yoga pants during 2020 – the year of “Casual Wear”.
As usual, I didn’t use the pattern I first chose, instead I used Kwik Sew K3660. Don’t you love it when you can ACTUALLY see the different size lines on a pattern piece!
I pulled three different knit fabrics from my stash. The bluish one was not as “stretchy” as the other two and the black one was the most light-weight of the three. Otherwise, I was pretty much in the dark as to what kind of fabrics these were. So what was the outcome of using these three mystery fabrics?
Turns out the bluish one was not the best choice. It didn’t have much stretch. When they put that little chart on the back of pattern envelopes indicating how much percentage stretch is required, they aren’t kidding! 🙂
The black was good for stretch and comfort but might wear out quicker because it is light-weight.
The dark grey was fabulous. It was thick, had a nice weight and drape and had the right amount of stretch for comfort!
Needless to say I feel like “Goldilocks” dealing with the Three Bears!
Next outfit in my #makenine2019? Black jeans, with some embellishment, of course! The last time I worked on these jeans was August of 2019, I think. I should have them finished for you next time we meet. In the meantime, here’s a peek!
Thanks for reading and commenting!
STASH BUSTING WITH THIS PROJECT? Starting with the estimated 125.8 metres in the fabric stash, I now have an estimated 118.3 metres.
