The Pittsburgh Pants are your new go-to pants! With so many options and flexibility for fabric choices, you will want to make a pair for every day of the week. View options include mini shorts, biker shorts, capris, crop length, standard cuff length, ankle and a yoga length.
The pants feature a gusset for better fit and range of movement. Other features include, side panel pockets for a nice color blocking and scrap-busting opportunity, as well as back pockets, cuffs for both standard and crop lengths and a contoured waistband with optional elastic.
The Pittsburgh Pants are drafted with a comfortable ease through the hip and waist to allow for greater versatility in regard to fabric choice and stretch percentage. If you prefer the fit to be a bit more compressive we recommend that you size down one size.
Fabric recommendations include: Performance fabrics, Oakley sweater knit, Double Brushed Poly (DBP), Nylon Ponte and French Terry.

Rayon is a broad category of semi-synthetic viscose fibers. There are different types of rayon and they depend on the type of plant it is made from.
RAYON - made from wood pulp.
MODAL - made from beech tree fibers.
BAMBOO - made from bamboo plants.
Modal and bamboo have a "silky" quality to them. They do not pill as easily with wash and wear.
Rayon Spandex is very light and airy, making it great for warmer weather sewing. With fabric care, be sure to wash without abrasives like zippers and velcro as it may pill faster.
These have gorgeous drape, great stretch, but recovery depends on the type- normal rayon spandex doesn’t have great recovery, modal and bamboo have good recovery but are not suitable for fitted clothing like leggings. These are all going to be a lighter weight knit.
Idea's of what you can make: Flowy tops, skirts, dresses, pjs.
