Refashion: Frumpy workout pants to a more flattering pair

I just started working out and my workout attire is a bit embarrassing! I look very frumpy and feel uncomfortable with it.

So, I took these workout pants

Eyed them to see how much I needed to take in on each side and pinned away

Then I started sewing. I prefer to see before I cut (especially bc I hardly ever measure anything or myself)!

I ended up doing two stitches side by side since these pants will be forced into walking, jogging, step n pump, Zumba and yoga…they need to be durable!

Yay, I made them the right size even without measuring😉

I ended up serging these as well in hopes that they will survive my torturous exercise adventures!

And here they are! Took me 5 minutes to change the cut/style and resize these. I wore them tonight to step n pump and had no problem with them sliding down!
