For those in the states who like to shop locally, Joanns has a lot to choose from. They have a nice selection of performance fabrics available. I used this quick dry fabric for the pair featured on the main page of the Thomas Track Pants pattern. The fabric is two sided making is really easy to sew view B without buying two separate fabrics.

You can score ponte from lots of places, Cali Fabrics,, and I even found some at Walmart for making my muslin. (I will add that the walmart ponte was cheap and did pill at the knees on the first wear, but when working out sizing, it’s a wonderful dollar conscious options.)

You can also find great athletic fabric choices at Rocky Woods. I have a couple on hand that I am excited to use! This cotton ripstop will make great lined track pants for spring!

And don’t forget, flannel and even quilting cotton make great options for lounge pants out of view A! Like this pair from Courtney at The Wholesome Mama. Seriously, how cool are these?!
