Jersey Journal #2: Leggings

Have you seen the new Yoga Set OHM pattern from Schnittchen?

My discovery of this pattern could not have come at a better timing.
I have recently decided to get off my bum and get some exercise:-) I have been going to Zumba classes and have been them a lot…  it feels very good to (try to) dance!

こんにちは。

今日は、最近発見したドイツのSchnittchenの素敵なヨガウェアの型紙についてお話ししたいと思います。

この頃、ズンバのレッスンに通い始めたのですが、すごく楽くてかなりハマっています。ちょうどこのタイミングでこの型紙に出会ったので、即購入しました^^

After reading the posts by  La Petite Josette and Dawn at Two on Two Off about their beautiful workout wear, I was very inspired to make some of my own.

A few reasons drove me to buy this pattern set the moment I saw it. First of all, it is basic, simple and stylish. Second, I thought the price was quite reasonable, given the fact that three patterns are included in the set, which can be worn not only for workout but can also be incorporated into the everyday wardrobe. Also, I had tried a Schnittchen pattern before and found it fitting very well.

少し前に La Petite Josette さんとTwo on Two Off のDawnさんのブログで彼女たちが自分で作ったかわいいフィットネスウェアを見て刺激を受けて、いつかフィットネスウェアを作ってみたいと思った矢先でした。

Schnittchenの型紙は以前も購入したことがありますが、補正しなくてもぴったりとフィットしてくれたので印象がよかったです。

このヨガセットのシンプルなスタイルがとっても気に入っていて、フィットネスウェアとしてはもちろんですが、どれも普段着ても良さそうなアイテムでかなり使えると思います。また、3つのアイテムが作れることを考えると、値段設定は良心的だと思います。

After opening the pattern, I had a fourth reason to love it! There are only very few pattern pieces to trace:-)

I decided to make the leggings first because that is what I need the most. I chose a medium weight black jersey which was delightful to work with. I think I could also have chose a thinner jersey, but I wanted the first pair warm enough to wear out jogging.

この型紙が気に入る点がもう1つあります。それは、パーツの数が少なくて、写して切る作業にあまり時間がかからなくてあっという間に作れちゃうことです^^

今回は、まずレギングズを作ってみました。生地は少し厚みのあるジャージニットです。

It was very quick to make it up with only three pattern pieces to trace and cut!  The waist band is made by stretching the jersey as you sew, with no additional elastic band required.

パーツは3枚(前と後ろ、ウエストバンド)だけ😃

とても簡単にできました!ウエストバンドは生地を伸ばしながら前・後ろ身頃に縫い付けられています。

I made a size 34 graded to size 36 at the hip.I think the size is pretty good, though I can also try making the entire legging in size 36 the next time, if I make it in a thicker material (i.e. for more of a sweat pant type pant).

ウエスト部分だけはサイズ36にして、他の部分はサイズ34にしました。これぐらいぴったりしていたほうが激しいズンバダンスを踊るときも安心かなと思います(笑)もっと分厚い生地を使うならサイズを1個あげたほうがいいかもしれなません。

I am excited about making more! These would also make nice PJs, I think, in a softer jersey. The tank top and the sweatshirt patterns included also looks very cool and I hope to make them up soon too!

何枚も作りたくなりました!一緒に付いてるトレーナーもタンクトップスもとてもかわいいので、次はどれを作ればいいか迷っています^^

Anyway, as you can tell, I am a big fan of this pattern!

Do you also sew your own fitness wear?

最後まで読んでいただいてありがとうございました!

皆さまはフィットネスウェアを作っていますか。

  1. Wow such great value having the three patterns! Your pants look great, super comfy looking. Sometimes the quick bread-and-butter patterns that can be worn every day can be so satisfying.
