The story of Cora Running Tights and Shorts – told by Jalie Patterns:
“Last year, a customer made a special request for stretch breeches. We really liked the idea of pants without an inseam. After looking at many breeches in specialized stores, we realized customers would have a hard time finding the right fabric for them. We decided to keep the idea of a no-inseam pants, and took it to the next level. We used lycra and as soon as I put on the first prototype last summer, we knew we were on the right track! A few pairs later, we came up with the back pocket idea. A wonderful, magical pocket that keeps your phone (or your favorite little music machine) in place. No bouncing. I even tried with a key. It didn’t move around. It fits an iPhone perfectly (adult sizes) and Henri wanted me to tell you that in kids size, the pocket is perfect for storing Pokemon cards :). What makes this pattern so special is the funky seaming that allows you to play with color blocking, totally transforming the style every time. We included a biker short version that has a thigh band, which stays in place better than the usual hem. We hope those of you who were looking for expensive-looking running tights will be happy that you can now make them yourselves without breaking the bank.”
