I have just finished my Yoga pants and know what you mean with the waist band. I had to shorten mine by almost 2 inches so it fit around the waist. Next time, I am going to adjust the pattern and cut the waistband smaller. I like the blue you have chosen.

You did, too! I learned to try out several times before just following instruction, which makes sense.

Oh, it feels good to not be the only one! My waist band is huge and they keep falling down. I even got 4way lycra knit. Oh well, the fabric was a remnant and cheep.

Fun review! and glad to see remarkshere about the too large waistband.

Ahhh. So I'm not the only one trying to figure out how to make the pants stay up! Considering sewing waistband elastic under the fold in the back.

Mine came out perfect! The second time I made them....I used French terry - light sweatshirt material - and they fit perfectly!
