My yoga pants are 10 years old or so. Until last year they had a new look to them because I rarely wore them. I didn't like how fitted they were. That's no longer the problem.
I've worn and washed them so often that the legs got baggy and holey, in particular around the knees. I wonder why the knees since I can't bend them. I lost the ability to sit cross-legged in my late 30s. I wonder if I can do that again if I were to get knee replacements.
Anyway, back to the holey yoga pants. By today's standards of yoga pants, mine are loosey-goosey, which I like and which means I won't find a similar pair ever. Fortunately, the rest of my holey pair of yoga pants still has a lot of wear to them. Simply patch the knees, right?
I've only sewn stretchy material once or twice. I always got nervous, panicky, even a bit scared. Today, I nipped all that in the face, and had a lot of fun. :-)
YOU are So Full of Colorful Fun!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing the Joy of YOU with us/me.
Joy sees joy, Georgy. :-)Delete
It brings them out.ReplyDelete
Coffee is on and stay safe
Dora, I'm quite pleased with the result. Still got the other knee to do. One day. :-)Delete
Why not make it colourful to match you. Happy New Year to you!!! I hope you had a good Christmas and a nice new year’s eve.ReplyDelete
You said it, Birgit. And, so I am. I'm that eccentric old lady in the background dancing to the music blaring out of somewhere. I love it.Delete
anything with two legs and no zipper is a pair of yoga pants as far as I’m concerned. It sounds so much better than sweatpants. (These days, that’s all I ever wear and I neither sweat nor do yoga while wearing them). Cheers ...happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Sallie, I think about learning a few basic yoga moves. I'll think about it some more. lol Cheers!Delete
Works for me! I don't sew either but patches are good! Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Hi, Anita. I just realized nearly everything I do is some kind of rendition, adaption, or modification of patchwork. I describe my style of cooking as mish-mash, for instance. Ha!Delete
I like the colorful patches on your yoga pants. I am pretty sad at sewing. Take care, stay safe! Have a happy new week!
Eileen, I love that phrase "I am pretty sad at sewing." I am, too, but I finally decided not to let that get in my way. Mama would've shuddered at my stitching, once upon a time. I now feel confident sewing in zigzag. I'm almost ready to use another kind of foot pedal. (Ha, I called it a dog pedal!)Delete
You could be starting a new designer fashion there 😀ReplyDelete
hahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha. Wouldn't that be something, Eunice!Delete
This is a second post I've seen today about repairing clothes! The other person took out a faux inside shirt of a sweater. I really like the loose yoga pants too and would repair them if they needed it. Those patches look colorful and fun!ReplyDelete
Last year the challenge was sourdough bread. Maybe this year will be repairing clothes. :-)Delete
I'm wholly team find-a-replacement. I've been buying leggings for walking lately, and I like them, so I would urge you to replace. I mean, repairing is good. And sewing stretchy is a great challenge to overcome. But seriously, you might find a pair that's so much better than what you have now.ReplyDelete
Being a senior (snort, that's funny) I need the challenge to keep my brain toned and maintained, Liz. Even if we weren't in SIP time, my shopping choices are few around here. I may be able to count to one. Two, in a stretch. Not that I'm complaining. :-)Delete
My 'shlumping-around-the-house' pants always go in the knees too . . . and I patch 'em up like that too. The more bright colours the better . . . which does horrify Mrs Widds just a little bit. She's far more elegant and colour-co-ordinated than I could ever be in my wildest dreams. :)ReplyDelete
We're fashion plates, Widders, and we don't know it. :-)Delete
...and I use things until there's nothing left to use.ReplyDelete
