Jalie Loulouxe Running Skirt


I love running skirts and as soon as I saw the Jalie Loulouxe, I knew I had to make a new one, :). 

I had read a couple reviews that had mentioned the shorts weren’t compression style and recommended to go down a size or 2, but I neglected to have that forethought. So I ended up taking the inseam in about an inch in total. I also thought they were a bit short for me so I lengthened the shorts and skirt 1”. I also added a large exterior pocket to the back of the top back skirt portion per this tutorial. Other changes were to use a 2” wide elastic in the waistband and to use the construction method Jalie’s other running skirt patter of attaching the skirt and shorts to the waistband.
Otherwise the construction directions were great and easy to follow, :). Next time I will make the shorts 1-2 sizes smaller and add another inch of length.

Love this newest addition! Shorts stayed out while running and th fabric I used is so amazing. It’s mostly nylon supplex type material I purchased from our local sewing store.
Thinking of making a pants version next.
