Just 3 hours you'll make leggings. Leggings are versatile, layerable, and above all, comfortable. The secret weapon for Melbourne's famous four seasons in one day weather! 

With only ONE pattern piece, this is a great pattern to start working on your knit fabric skills. The leggings have an elastic waist, you'll use various stretch stitches on the sewing machine and use overlockers if you wish.

Leggings are all about fabric choice. Look for really stretchy knit that is a blend of natural and synthetic fibres.

I completed the leggings course recently and absolutely loved it! I chose difficult fabric and had a variety of challenges, but the teacher was so patient and helped me with different techniques! I’m happy with the outcome and I’ll definitely be trying another course!! This class was well worth the cost and a great way to spend time over the weekend!

Relaxed, friendly atmosphere in which we learnt the basics of sewing with stretch fabrics, including sizing, cutting/pinning, and sewing with appropriate machine settings. Now feeling confident to try again at home! Would recommend.

It was such a lovely way to spend a Friday night... while others wake up with a hangover, you wake up with a new pair of leggings! Such a lovely group of students too.
