You guys should know by now how much I love Jalie. This is the third and fourth time I've made this pattern. The first two times were running shirts (here and here). This is the first time I've made the pants. Unsurprisingly, they fit well straight out of the envelope. First, let's talk tops. I made this turtleneck by sewing the top together and not slashing the polo opening. Then I made the front of the scoop a little bit deeper. When I measured the circumference of the top it totaled 16" so I made my neckband 15". I wanted it to be snug versus really slouchy. Then I quartered the top and collar and attached it. This is a fabric my husband bought for me during one of his many Houston trips last year. It's an organic cotton with little holes in it (scroll down on the link above and you can see a close-up). It is a dense enough weave that I don't have to worry about any bra peekage. Pardon the funny faces but it's 3° outside right now. ETA: I should add that the shirt is just an undershirt. I don't run in cotton shirts. I would freeze my everything off.
Next, the bottoms. The bottoms are a size S which is two sizes bigger than the top. I'm a true pear-shaped woman. These pants are made out of a very thick bottomweight four-way stretch knit I bought from the Fabrics and Notions coop group run by Ressy (thanks EFQ!). The only change I might make next time is to flair the legs just a little bit more. These are also a cotton mix so I wear them at the gym and as lounge pants. I won't wear these when I run outside either.
And the requisite butt photo.
I really like how the pattern is lower in the front and higher in the back. No one wants butt cleavage on the track.
Hmmmmm, next up? I'm not sure. The kids probably need more winter stuff. It's been chilly, chilly here.
