Thank you for watching!!
Tock has the best sewing channel, he shows step by step instructions and ppl are able to see what he’s doing 🙂
And he doesn’t include stuff that isn’t necessary, like what he had for breakfast, unlike 99% of other “tutorials” out there.
@Tock Custom i’m doing well and staying home doing alot of sewing diffrent cloths and starting a T-Shirt embroidery
Thanks a ton for the love my friend! I’m so happy to share these tutorials with people and to have such a positive reaction from the world 🙂
Hope you’re doing terrific!
Mom said im getting a Brother for christmas. I hope she means the sewing machine as she’s 71. So this will be my new favorite channel.
lmao, I love this comment 😊
Love the video! Thank you for featuring a female guest! She seems amazing and you two work so great together! However, my video seemed to have an awful echo in some spots, was that just my video player? Stay safe Tock and keep the amazing work coming! Thank you! <3
Glad you enjoyed it! I was having audio issues on my end, did my best to save them, otherwise this video would have just been deleted. I think it ended up pretty good regardless. Thanks for watching!
@Tock Custom If Cat were just a bit more sneaky, she could have suggested a “Redo” or take two, take three, take four….. till she had a whole new wardrobe. But that’s right, she already knows how to sew herself. Shame too…. There is some poor many thumbed, stitch challenged person out there hunting for a guy like you Tock..
Another video, another fantastic tutorial! Not planning to do yoga pants any time soon, but I have a real stretchy, tight-fitting ribbed cardigan to re-hem at the cuffs and I had no idea how to tackle this, and your video delivered! Love how your tutorials are always packed with bits and bobs of practical knowledge that can be applied to so many different sewing tasks <3 Re: yoke vs waistband, I think the difference is (other than the fact that the former is used by the Irish as a word to describe anything you don't know proper name of :D) the width and placement: waistband sits at natural waist and is 1-2 inches wide, whereas yoke is about 3-4 inches wide, sits below the waist and hugs the hips. At least this is the case for skirts. Thanks for the video and hope to see more collabs with Cat, you guys make a great team!
Thank you so much for such a thoughtful comment! I appreciate that this project was helpful, and all the techniques included as well. I really hope to do some more videos with Cat, she was incredible to film with (and she’s also way more talented than I am)!
Have a terrific week <3
Great tutorial! I wouldn’t have thought of making yoga pants but now I kinda want to try!
BTW you did a great job repairing your audio – I think every crafter knows what it’s like to work hours thinking everything’s going so well just to find out something’s wrong just before the end. Like that time I made a small serger cut in the sleeve of my almost finished shirt…
Thank you SO much for saying that. I’m still very proud of this content… even though the perfectionist in me was irritated lol. But overall I’m thrilled about this.
I appreciate the comment and your feedback. Thanks for watching!!
Awesome. Well done and cool sewing video as usual. Great idea to feature a special guest to sew ladies yoga pants. Best looking sewing duo on Youtube. Cheers!
@Joy I would love to make my girlfriend a dress or a skirt. Unfortunately, she won’t wear anything girlie. I told her I want to make her a little dress with pleated skirt and puff sleeves. She says I’m crazy she ain’t wearing it! I tell her whats the fun in being female if you don’t dress sexy. So mainly I make tough guy shirts for myself and a cover for my motorcycle.
@John Doe You’re right! Everyone should wear yoga pants especially with pockets. Hope this video inspires everybody and I encourage you to sew your own, customized for your use. I’m sure your lucky girlfriend will be happy with hers. Sigh…I wish my guy would sew for me.
Yoga pants aren’t just for ladies. I wear ’em under my jeans to keep my legs warm while riding my motorcycle. nothing girlie about it. They are also comfortable to wear around the house on a winter day. I stole ’em from my girlfriend, but now i think i’ll make my own. I might make my girlfriend a pair since hers are stretched out. They look better on me then on her.
I’m so happy to get such a positive comment from you! This was way too much fun, hope to do more shoots like this soon 🙂 Thanks for watching!
First, I want to say, I love your channel Tock! Now to my question, I noticed in this video you sewed the yoga pants with the pins in place. Is that because of the type of material (stretch), or have you started sewing your seams with the pins in place on all seams? I am a newer sewer, and was just curious as to the change in technique. Thanks
Nice video. This is a pattern I must have. Pockets! Yes!
Love your sewing machine. Hahaha! Yes, I have the same model. After a couple weeks sewing with it, wish I had it long before.
Awesome! Helpful 😄 I cut up one of my old pairs and used it as a template 👌
Hopefully that worked well for you! Otherwise there are a ton of great patterns out there. Thanks for watching <3
Well done so easy to follow your tutorials! Thank you!!
You are so welcome! Hope you’re able to make some wicked Yoga Pants now!!
I love watching your videos during sewing myself haha.
I was wondering if you had any thoughts on how to make a fitted waistcoat, and on blind hem stitching.
Thank you so much for all your videos and effort that goes into them!
That’s awesome! Happy to ‘hang out with you’ while you’re working 🙂
I know how to make dress vests and waistcoats – but it’s more of an advanced garment with lining, so I was going to save that for later after I’ve finished a lot of my entry level videos. I’ll have a lot more stuff coming out soon, so hopefully it’s all helpful to you along the way.
Thanks for the support my friend!
Great video! Thank you! I’m going to try this pattern 👍
Excellent! Hope they turn out amazing 😀
Thanks for watching, have an amazing week!
By following this tutorial and using a pattern I cloned from shorts I like, I’ve made I made stretch shorts with pockets! (It gets hot in Australia)
Oh that’s awesome! That’s right, you’re going into summer down under lol – have a terrific week! <3
Great video! I love that you’re branching out! Kat was a great guest, and has such pretty hands (you do, too, Chris). I can see myself making some of these.
Thank you so much for such wonderful things to say! Very happy you enjoyed this video 😄 Hope you end up making some terrific Yoga Pants!
Your videos are always the best! I learned so much from you! Thank you!
Thank you so much for the support!! Happy to share some great info to help people create some terrific things <3
A few mic issues, but highly informative video! Really like different sewing techniques to learn. Thanks for another good one.
@Tock Custom it wasn’t terrible, and I can sympathize with spending a ton of time trying to fix it. I am not sure if I’m ready for this yet, butt I think she would like that!
I did my very best to save all of the audio, there were some issues I didn’t know of until editing… I spent… so much time… trying to get this as close to perfect as I could! Hope it wasn’t too terrible. I’ve since upgraded my mics to better accommodate collaborative video shoots though! Thanks for watching dude, maybe it’s time to make some Yoga Pants for the wife!?
Great tutorial. You made it look so easy!
@Tock Custom SO true!
Thank you very much! When you break any project into individual steps, it helps to simplify everything and it is much less intimidating, and a lot easier 🙂
Great video, Tock & Cat. Hey Tock, I noticed your using the metal clips to keep your Olfa cutting mats together. I stopped using them as they always seem to be in the way when I was laying out fabric & cutting it. I now use invisible tape on the bottom & top & have had no issues. Cheers!
Oh that’s a great idea. I often move it off the table though so I’d hate for it to fall apart a lot lol. Maybe I’ll try something similar to what you’ve done 🙂
Great job with awesome fabric. They look great!
Thank you! 😊We were so happy with how these turned out, thank you so much for watching 🙂
Best sewing tutorials I’ve seen yet!! Simple and not too slow and boring. Thank you!!
