Don’t Sweat It
Posted 22 February, 09on:
With physical therapy two or three times a week, I need more “work out” wear. I hate big, baggy sweats, but I need pants big enough to fit over my knee brace. Design #29 from the 01/09 issue of Ottobre Design is fabulous. I lowered the waist line a bit and added a little pocket for my phone. No, I do not have my phone in my pocket when I am exercising, but the pocket is handy for carrying my phone when I am hanging out at home. The fabric is a super warm stretch “performance” fabric from Malden Mills. The exact name escapes my memory because this fabric has been aging in the closet for a long time. It is soft and fleecy on the inside, but the outside is a smooth knit. The fit is terrific and I plan to make this pattern several more times. It makes a comfortable knit pant without looking sloppy. I also have a pair in aubergine. My physical therapist asked where I bought them because she liked the style and fit so much.
