Item details

Active Capri Pant or Short with Yoga Waist and Crotch Gusset. Includes optional back yoke and leg gussets, as well as a jig to convert gusset crotch to a regular crotch.

This is a versatile pattern to help you build your active wear wardrobe. The pattern includes a cut line for an optional back yoke piece if you’re looking for a sportier look. It also includes cut lines for shorts at 2 lengths: 4” or 6” inseam. The contoured yoga waist is a single piece for quicker construction, and includes “turn of cloth” ease for the inside portion so you can add 1/4” elastic to the top of the waistband for even more support. The leg gussets are optional as well.

Please note that my patterns are designed specifically to print on the USA standard paper size of 8 1/2" x 11". If want to purchase my patterns and your country uses a different paper size, please contact me before purchase so we can discuss reformatting to meet your criteria.

Welcome to Hourglass Patterns Store. All my patterns are drafted by hand and tested multiple times to ensure accuracy. I draft my patterns to accommodate a larger bust, and more muscular bicep and shoulder. This pattern is sized for S/M/L. Directions included. Pictorials for assembling the yoga waist with elastic can be found on sewsuccessful.blogspot.com.

Average review
This pattern is amazingly easy and fast! Laurie is such an expert and perfectionist and it shows in her patterns. These pants were easy to sew and the pattern is very easy to follow. I love how the pattern gets taped together at the seams without having to match up circles just right. The beauty of doing this too, is that she takes the time to make sure the patterns can easily fold up to fit in a manilla folder without having to bend the pattern itself. It folds on the natural edges of the paper. For those who like to organize and re-use their patterns, this is a huge bonus!
