Easy Fit and Sew Yoga Pants: How to Sew the Yoga Pants

1
00:00:06,980 –> 00:00:09,650
okay welcome back in this lesson I’m

2
00:00:09,650 –> 00:00:11,230
going to show you how to sew

3
00:00:11,230 –> 00:00:13,179
together and you can see here I already

4
00:00:13,179 –> 00:00:17,439
have folded one of my legs in half and I

5
00:00:17,439 –> 00:00:20,169
pin the seam already this fabric is has

6
00:00:20,169 –> 00:00:22,840
a lighter side and a darker side and I

7
00:00:22,840 –> 00:00:24,130
think because gray is one of those

8
00:00:24,130 –> 00:00:25,810
colors I think I’m going to have the

9
00:00:25,810 –> 00:00:28,089
darker side of my fabric as the right

10
00:00:28,089 –> 00:00:29,980
side of my fabric even though I’m

11
00:00:29,980 –> 00:00:31,810
suspecting it’s the wrong side of my

12
00:00:31,810 –> 00:00:34,960
fabric the way it was woven so I folded

13
00:00:34,960 –> 00:00:37,030
this one with the light side face out

14
00:00:37,030 –> 00:00:39,190
and what I want to show you is when you

15
00:00:39,190 –> 00:00:42,579
pin from the crotch to the hem nothing

16
00:00:42,579 –> 00:00:46,020
should be fighting okay so notice how

17
00:00:46,020 –> 00:00:49,780
when I pin this everything just lays

18
00:00:49,780 –> 00:00:52,960
nice and smooth with each other okay so

19
00:00:52,960 –> 00:00:55,989
from the crotch to the the hem you

20
00:00:55,989 –> 00:00:58,329
should be able to fold it in half and

21
00:00:58,329 –> 00:01:00,640
have it lay nice alright so let’s now

22
00:01:00,640 –> 00:01:03,100
fold this other leg I like to lay them

23
00:01:03,100 –> 00:01:05,140
out in front of me like this so I make

24
00:01:05,140 –> 00:01:08,140
sure I make a right and left leg and I

25
00:01:08,140 –> 00:01:10,149
like to lay it out and then sort of get

26
00:01:10,149 –> 00:01:14,500
my inseam to agree it’s going to agree

27
00:01:14,500 –> 00:01:17,679
without forcing it to line up with each

28
00:01:17,679 –> 00:01:20,080
other almost all the way to the top so

29
00:01:20,080 –> 00:01:24,490
notice how these edges are even and then

30
00:01:24,490 –> 00:01:28,569
as you get towards the crotch the the

31
00:01:28,569 –> 00:01:30,880
front gets a little bit narrower so see

32
00:01:30,880 –> 00:01:33,550
now they’re not even okay so that’s how

33
00:01:33,550 –> 00:01:36,099
it should lay when it’s flat if you’re

34
00:01:36,099 –> 00:01:38,289
getting funky twisting down here then

35
00:01:38,289 –> 00:01:41,170
something wasn’t cut out right so when

36
00:01:41,170 –> 00:01:42,970
you fold your pattern piece in half

37
00:01:42,970 –> 00:01:46,410
that’s how it should look okay so notice

38
00:01:46,410 –> 00:01:49,479
equal and then the front should be a

39
00:01:49,479 –> 00:01:52,209
little bit narrower up at the crotch and

40
00:01:52,209 –> 00:01:53,950
then also notice I’m going to pull this

41
00:01:53,950 –> 00:01:58,629
down the rise in the front is lower than

42
00:01:58,629 –> 00:01:59,950
the rise in the back so you should have

43
00:01:59,950 –> 00:02:02,080
this diagonal like this at the waist

44
00:02:02,080 –> 00:02:05,259
where the fold is okay so that’s how it

45
00:02:05,259 –> 00:02:07,030
should look when you fold it in half and

46
00:02:07,030 –> 00:02:09,098
so then it’s very easy to pin together

47
00:02:09,098 –> 00:02:11,770
you’re just going to pin the bottom of

48
00:02:11,770 –> 00:02:16,450
the leg you know so it’s together and

49
00:02:16,450 –> 00:02:18,670
that’s very easy because it lays nicely

50
00:02:18,670 –> 00:02:21,000
together

51
00:02:23,590 –> 00:02:26,060
all right and then I’m going to make

52
00:02:26,060 –> 00:02:27,920
these two meet over here so I’m going to

53
00:02:27,920 –> 00:02:32,420
match them alright so now that I have

54
00:02:32,420 –> 00:02:34,879
both sides pinned it’s time to go to the

55
00:02:34,879 –> 00:02:36,980
serger okay so this portion of the video

56
00:02:36,980 –> 00:02:38,689
is going to be very fast because we

57
00:02:38,689 –> 00:02:41,090
really only have three seams to sew the

58
00:02:41,090 –> 00:02:43,459
two in seams and then the cross seam is

59
00:02:43,459 –> 00:02:45,170
going to be really quick and easy before

60
00:02:45,170 –> 00:02:48,760
we get going I want to test the serger

61
00:02:48,760 –> 00:02:52,280
with a scrap of a fabric because I might

62
00:02:52,280 –> 00:02:54,379
need to adjust my differential feed if

63
00:02:54,379 –> 00:02:55,790
anybody doesn’t know what differential

64
00:02:55,790 –> 00:02:58,129
feed is it’s the fact that you can

65
00:02:58,129 –> 00:03:00,970
control the speed of the front feed dog

66
00:03:00,970 –> 00:03:03,709
versus how fast the back feed dog is

67
00:03:03,709 –> 00:03:05,120
going and let me just take my presser

68
00:03:05,120 –> 00:03:08,209
foot off quickly to show you okay so you

69
00:03:08,209 –> 00:03:10,069
can see here I’ve got two sets of feed

70
00:03:10,069 –> 00:03:14,480
dogs these in the front you can adjust

71
00:03:14,480 –> 00:03:16,700
the speed these in the back go at a

72
00:03:16,700 –> 00:03:18,889
constant rate of speed okay so when

73
00:03:18,889 –> 00:03:20,750
you’re working with a knit if you shove

74
00:03:20,750 –> 00:03:23,180
it in there a little bit faster then the

75
00:03:23,180 –> 00:03:24,950
back is letting it out it’ll compress

76
00:03:24,950 –> 00:03:27,739
the knit a little bit and counteract the

77
00:03:27,739 –> 00:03:29,449
stretch of it being squeezed under the

78
00:03:29,449 –> 00:03:32,449
presser foot so I never like to go crazy

79
00:03:32,449 –> 00:03:34,010
with this kind of thing I’m just going

80
00:03:34,010 –> 00:03:38,299
to put my differential feed on the first

81
00:03:38,299 –> 00:03:43,340
setting above neutral which or normal

82
00:03:43,340 –> 00:03:45,139
which means they’re going at the same

83
00:03:45,139 –> 00:03:45,889
rate of speed

84
00:03:45,889 –> 00:03:50,599
so on my Ovation and means and on any

85
00:03:50,599 –> 00:03:53,299
surgery actually n means both the front

86
00:03:53,299 –> 00:03:54,500
and back feed dogs are going the same

87
00:03:54,500 –> 00:03:55,040
rate of speed

88
00:03:55,040 –> 00:03:57,949
perfect for stable woven fabric I’m

89
00:03:57,949 –> 00:04:00,139
going to put it on one point three and

90
00:04:00,139 –> 00:04:03,109
I’m going to see how it looks because a

91
00:04:03,109 –> 00:04:04,069
mistake you can make with your

92
00:04:04,069 –> 00:04:05,799
differential feed is you can actually

93
00:04:05,799 –> 00:04:09,470
make it too fast and then it will

94
00:04:09,470 –> 00:04:11,599
actually start to gather it up okay so

95
00:04:11,599 –> 00:04:13,820
let’s just see how that looks

96
00:04:13,820 –> 00:04:16,290
it gives me the opportunity to test my

97
00:04:16,290 –> 00:04:17,790
stitch to to make sure I like the way

98
00:04:17,790 –> 00:04:20,150
that looks

99
00:04:22,610 –> 00:04:25,520
see how that’s laying nice and flat that

100
00:04:25,520 –> 00:04:27,949
means that’s a perfect setting for this

101
00:04:27,949 –> 00:04:30,770
fabric because it’s not stretching and

102
00:04:30,770 –> 00:04:33,050
it’s also not gathering I just want to

103
00:04:33,050 –> 00:04:35,150
show you how it will look if I actually

104
00:04:35,150 –> 00:04:37,009
jacked that the difference will feed up

105
00:04:37,009 –> 00:04:38,689
too high I’m going to put it on the

106
00:04:38,689 –> 00:04:40,129
maximum setting let’s see how that looks

107
00:04:40,129 –> 00:04:41,419
we’ll do it on the opposite side over

108
00:04:41,419 –> 00:04:48,830
here so you can see all right so you can

109
00:04:48,830 –> 00:04:51,620
see what’s happening on this side you

110
00:04:51,620 –> 00:04:53,150
can see that it’s actually starting to

111
00:04:53,150 –> 00:04:55,610
gather up the fabric so you want to be

112
00:04:55,610 –> 00:04:57,050
really careful with your differential

113
00:04:57,050 –> 00:04:58,930
feed setting and you want to make it

114
00:04:58,930 –> 00:05:00,919
appropriate for the amount of stress of

115
00:05:00,919 –> 00:05:03,259
your fabric so always start on a lower

116
00:05:03,259 –> 00:05:04,969
differential feed setting maybe one

117
00:05:04,969 –> 00:05:06,949
adjustment higher than neutral or normal

118
00:05:06,949 –> 00:05:10,129
on some sergers it may even be zero but

119
00:05:10,129 –> 00:05:12,949
I think most of them have an end as the

120
00:05:12,949 –> 00:05:15,889
you know the base setting and then see

121
00:05:15,889 –> 00:05:18,379
and if it’s rippling and stretching then

122
00:05:18,379 –> 00:05:20,509
you can move it up one and try it again

123
00:05:20,509 –> 00:05:22,969
so for me I’m going to leave mine on the

124
00:05:22,969 –> 00:05:24,830
first one point-three so take a minute

125
00:05:24,830 –> 00:05:27,710
and surge on a scrap and see how you

126
00:05:27,710 –> 00:05:30,909
have to set your differential feed

127
00:05:34,400 –> 00:05:36,260
the rest of my machine is just set up

128
00:05:36,260 –> 00:05:39,110
for a four thread stretch stitch and

129
00:05:39,110 –> 00:05:40,640
what makes it a stretch stitch is my

130
00:05:40,640 –> 00:05:42,350
differential feed being higher than n

131
00:05:42,350 –> 00:05:47,690
I’m going to start at the hem and I’m

132
00:05:47,690 –> 00:05:51,050
going to go up the leg all right so I’m

133
00:05:51,050 –> 00:05:53,510
just going to stick my fabric under

134
00:05:53,510 –> 00:05:57,760
there I’m going to remove my first pin

135
00:05:58,190 –> 00:06:00,190
[Music]

136
00:06:00,190 –> 00:06:11,870
and I’m going to start stitching all

137
00:06:11,870 –> 00:06:12,950
right so I’m just going to keep going

138
00:06:12,950 –> 00:06:16,810
and I’m going to do my second leg here

139
00:06:27,970 –> 00:06:30,110
all right let’s look and see what we

140
00:06:30,110 –> 00:06:30,620
have

141
00:06:30,620 –> 00:06:32,450
all right so essentially what I’ve done

142
00:06:32,450 –> 00:06:35,980
is I’ve made two – all right so here’s

143
00:06:35,980 –> 00:06:38,570
you know here one leg and here’s the

144
00:06:38,570 –> 00:06:45,020
other leg okay all right so what I’m

145
00:06:45,020 –> 00:06:46,610
going to do is I’m going to turn one of

146
00:06:46,610 –> 00:06:50,690
them right side out okay and then I’m

147
00:06:50,690 –> 00:06:52,100
going to take the one that I turned

148
00:06:52,100 –> 00:06:53,540
right side out and I’m going to put it

149
00:06:53,540 –> 00:06:57,139
into my inside-out leg and I’m going to

150
00:06:57,139 –> 00:06:59,930
line up my in seams so I’m just going to

151
00:06:59,930 –> 00:07:02,840
shove in the leg that’s right side out

152
00:07:02,840 –> 00:07:04,280
and I’m going to get it in there like

153
00:07:04,280 –> 00:07:07,220
this and then what I’m going to do is

154
00:07:07,220 –> 00:07:09,940
I’m going to match my in seems like this

155
00:07:09,940 –> 00:07:14,450
and I’m going to put a pin there okay so

156
00:07:14,450 –> 00:07:15,590
now what I’m going to do is I’m just

157
00:07:15,590 –> 00:07:18,620
going to line up my front crotch in my

158
00:07:18,620 –> 00:07:20,240
back crotch so I’m going to from the

159
00:07:20,240 –> 00:07:24,850
waist to the inseam there’s my front

160
00:07:24,850 –> 00:07:27,680
okay going to put a pin one pin at the

161
00:07:27,680 –> 00:07:29,720
top here and then I’m going to do the

162
00:07:29,720 –> 00:07:32,270
same thing in the back now if you’re

163
00:07:32,270 –> 00:07:33,410
doing this and you’re putting it

164
00:07:33,410 –> 00:07:35,840
together and you have a front matching

165
00:07:35,840 –> 00:07:37,910
up with a back one of two things has

166
00:07:37,910 –> 00:07:39,860
happened either you forgot to turn it

167
00:07:39,860 –> 00:07:41,630
right tight out before you insert it

168
00:07:41,630 –> 00:07:44,720
into this leg or you made two left’s or

169
00:07:44,720 –> 00:07:46,700
two rights so you’ll have to take the

170
00:07:46,700 –> 00:07:49,610
inseam out and fix it so at this point

171
00:07:49,610 –> 00:07:50,660
your back

172
00:07:50,660 –> 00:07:52,340
crotch should match your back crotch

173
00:07:52,340 –> 00:07:54,080
like this and the front crotch should

174
00:07:54,080 –> 00:07:56,690
match the Rutte crotch you can see I

175
00:07:56,690 –> 00:08:00,050
pinned my my inseam pointing towards the

176
00:08:00,050 –> 00:08:03,350
back okay this is my back and to make

177
00:08:03,350 –> 00:08:05,720
this sew together nice and easily

178
00:08:05,720 –> 00:08:07,789
so I’m start at the front I have my in

179
00:08:07,789 –> 00:08:09,710
seams pointing to the back and they’ll

180
00:08:09,710 –> 00:08:11,030
stay pointing the back because we’re

181
00:08:11,030 –> 00:08:12,950
going to lay flat as I roll over them

00:08:22,460 –> 00:08:23,419
presser foot a little bit right there

187
00:08:23,419 –> 00:08:27,820
and I’m going to start surging

188
00:08:30,819 –> 00:08:33,320
and when I get to the end seam I’m going

189
00:08:33,320 –> 00:08:35,479
to make sure both of my tails are ready

00:08:35,479 –> 00:08:41,750
