Sweats 1

 Hello Readers. Do you feel like sitting on the couch in your sweatpants eating cookie dough? Me too. The only problem was that my sweatpants and shorts are too tight. But that's OK. I have access to my man's cast offs.  Today is 1 of 2 sweat pant refashions.

These sweatpants were simple, gray and basic. The color worked for me. They need to be resized and it was hot the day I was sewing. That made me want shorts.

I cut off the pant legs and made new side seams. There was a drawstring but there was also an elastic waistband in there. I cut the drawstring off and kept the elastic.

I was able to keep the back pocket! It is really handy because it is large enough for my phone. Real pockets are always a big plus for me.

 My shorts were done and it was time for me to take a walk. I have been trying to exercise more. I always plan to do something active but I don't always get to it. New cozy shorts might help right?

 Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

Nice fit! I have been seeing "summer sweatsuits" on various sewing blogs. For exercising, stretchy clothing is really comfortable. And, you have the leg cut-offs to add to a future cozy winter refashion!

Hello KD,
Thanks for the comment. I did save those legs.
I am not sure yet what I will do with them though.
Happy sewing to you!
