xxl t shirt into yoga pants

Thursday, August 19, 2010 |
im sure you have seen how to make a tshirt into yoga pants somewhere on the inter-webs.
what? you havent?!
well, let me show you how!
let's go to the link that i started at. i will only highlight the things i did differently.
first, i got a new t shirt. i had a coupon from pennys that made it free, so it wasnt like i spent money.
 i had natey model it.
(on a side note, when i asked him to put this on he asked 'why me again?' me: 'because you are cute.' natey: 'ggrrrrr...darn you mom! you made me too cute!')
i cut off the sleaves...yadda yadda yadda...
then instead of measuring down the middle and cutting, i folded my shirt in half and pinned down the edge. im sure i could have used a tape measure and all that.
but then math is involved.
then i didnt quite have enough fabric from the sleeves to make the waistband, so i grabbed a shirt that was headed to the thrift store (thank you laziness!) and cut the bottom edge off. and since the shirt was a heathered gray, it looks nice with this blue.

pin pin pin...
sew sew sew...
instead of making an elastic waistband, i sewed the right side of the grey to the wrong side of the blue waistbands. that way i can flip the grey over and it looks kinda cool. i made it a little snug with the grey fabric so it will stretch. i did take the waist band and the side seems of the legs in a bit.
and, here is a cute feature, my shirt had a boob pocket! so now i have a hip pocket!
these are so comfy-i might not take them off.
well, as long as i stay inside that is.
(ok, ps, my boobs arent as big as they look in this photo. goo.)

I wish I could live in yoga pants. Well, I almost do. But I wish it was okay that I do. Yours look great!

Hi Thrifty! I'm glad you could join the party, I wondered what you'd been up to. You look so cute, I've never seen these before. Thanks for the laugh--you do look a bit 'well endowed'! I just became a follower, doh!

I just used the same tutorial a few weeks ago to make my own:

I agree that they're super duper comfy and not that difficult to do either. Although I do wish I'd heard about your trick of folding and pinning instead of cutting. I got mine pretty symmetrical but your way's much easier.

I LOVE this! I am wearing my one pair of yoga pants right now, and I've often debated buying another pair. Now, I don't have to buy them! Woo hoo!

Nice! Love the little pocket! Oh how I wish I could sew. It's on my must do in 2010 list so I better get to it.

You can talk about candy to a girl on a diet. I will just eat it vicariously though you! ;o)
