These leggings are a great canvas for bold prints or for adding your own style lines.
The leggings are a quick and easy project, because the sewing pattern only has one piece, there is no side seam, only an inseam.
Because your legs are all different, it features 3 inseam lengths and an elastic waist. And the legs are drafted with subtle curves to accomodate your calfs and knees.
It includes lines on the pattern and measurements of the knee, calf and ankle to help you check and tweak the pattern to fit your shape even better.
The pattern has a lot of negative ease and works best with 4-way stretch fabricswith at least 70% crosswise stretch and 50% lengthwise stretch.
From the pattern testers:
"I didn’t change a single thing, and they fit amazing. I was worried about the fit in the hip/ butt area but they are exactly the right size without being too tight."
"Actually, finding fabric was the toughest part"
"I learned that sewing knits was not as hard as I was building up in my head. I finished this garment within 2.5 hours of work which is so much quicker than I ever thought it would have taken."
