How to sew yoga pants with black band and Aztec pattern
I made yoga pants with the black band and Aztec pattern for my client. Here it is step by step images and description of this project. These yoga pants were easier to make and took less time than cowl neck collar.
Stretch the knit material. Use Aztec line print for the main body and black sketch for the yoke.
Cut out the back of yoga pants, wrong sides together.
If needed, carefully match up the material pattern by lining up the print of the pattern from the crotch to the bottom of back piece before cutting the front piece.
After lining up the pattern print, cut out the front of the yoga pants.
Cut out the yoke with contrasting black fabric.
Place the back on the front piece, wrong sides together. Line up the crotch seam to the bottom edge of the pants and notches. Repeat with the other.
Sew the seam with a stretch stitch and then serge the seam.
Press the serged seam towards the back piece. Repeat with the other back and front piece.
Place serged back/front pieces together at crotch area; match notches (back pieces on left; front on right).
Sew the seam of the crotch area, making sure the serged seam is lying towards the back. Sew a reinforced stitch over the seam. Then serge the seam.
Place the sides of the pants wrong sides together; pin then sew the sides. Then serge the seams.
Serge the bottom edges of the pant legs. Then turn under the desired amount (e.g. 1.25” inches) and press. Use a blind hem stitch or regular hem (or sew by hand if desired) to track down the hem.
Pin the yoke on the right and left sides length-wise, wrong sides together.
Stitch the pinned seams of the yoke, then serge them. Press the serged seams.
Turn the yoke right side out. Fold in half on lining up fold line. Pin the notches together at the base of the yoke and baste 3/8” in from the edge around the base.
Pin the yoke matching notches, side seams, and center.
If desired, fold over the yoke halfway and turn it inside and pin to the seam where it was attached. Sew it down. Note: I opted to fold the band over to the outside of the garment instead.
Here are the the final images of yoga pants with the black band and Aztec pattern.
