Ever since the delivery, I’ve been favoring long sweaters over leggings kind of look, because I cant fit back into my old jeans or pants yet. They were very tight fitting to begin with anyways. However, I also know that leggings are not pants, and I always feel a little weird when wearing sweaters that are just a little bit too short.
So I made a pair of pants that I can wear as leggings, using jean material, with the cut of yoga pants. I gave this a new name – yojeggings. I hope this new pair of hotpants takes the fashion world by the storm in this new year! haha 🙂
Anyways — it really is super easy — I didnt want any zippers or pockets so that they would be more comfortable, faster to sew, and no extra buldges to show under my sweaters/shirts. I used burda yoga pants pattern, except that I made the legs straight (great for boots), and jus straight stripes with elastic bands as waist bands.
End result — sewn under 2 hours over a few days during Kaylee’s nap time, and I love wear it with my highheel oxford and boots! They are super duper comfortable, and modest as well!

What is super is that I think they will still look nice and wearable after you’re back to where you want to be.
Pajama jeans! But yours look wayyyy better =D
Very cool, did you use stretch denim?
yes i did! i think it was 4% elasticky content…
those look super cute! I have some very stretchy denim (bought by mistake) and I was thinking of trying something similar.
Firstly, congratulations on the birth of your daughter! And I’m super impressed that not only you have time for sewing, but also knitting on the new knitting machine… outstanding!
The yojeggings are very cool, and way more lovely than standard leggings.
