Description

Just 3 hours and you'll make a pair of leggings! Leggings are versatile, layer-able, 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 and stretch stitch 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.

Thanks Thread Den, this class was great. I made some really nice leggings and learnt how to shape them to fit me exactly. I also picked up lots of tips and tricks in sewing with knits. I have since gone on to make three new pairs of fun leggings.
