These sweatpants are the second pattern on our "Sew Fit" storyboard collection and they are not just for sweating as I will demonstrate in the months to come. The fit of the pattern is not the trend of these days which is thick leggings with pockets. These sweatpants are more in the traditional (read practical) style and have more room around the legs without being floppy. With pockets large enough for your phone, they are certainly not the tight leggings that many are sporting today. But I think you'll find them very comfortable as well as presentable for that quick trip to the store, and not to mention the gym... These sweatpants are to be worn one inch over your belly button which is the ideal place to avoid the dreaded muffin top look. The making of this pair of sweatpants is very easy, so I will say that the project is suitable for the advanced beginner. It is similar in construction to the pyjama pants we did last year. That tutorial has a video so you can follow the same instructions there about how to sew the pockets. So let's start, and as always the best thing to do is to measure yourself and pay attention to the finished garments measurements below. These measurements are a better indication than the size of how the sweatpants will fit on your body.
