Pattern Design: Build your comfy go-to-wardrobe pieces with a staple you'll wear all year round - leggings!  

With just two pattern pieces. You could vary the length for more pattern possibiities, you'll be whipping up an army of these wardrobe workhorses. Leggings are versatile, layerable, and above all, comfortable. A girl's secret weapon in Melbourne's famous four seasons in one day weather! We've got all the tools you'll need: ball point needles, twin needles, overlockers. AND most importantly, you get an experienced teacher on hand to take you through the skills, techniques and how to use these tools for an amazing professional finish.

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: Look at jersey knits, merino wool knits, baby rib knit... It is essential you choose a two-way stretch. Also your leggings will retain their shape if there is 5-10% of lycra/nylon/elstain/etc in the fabric. 

For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.

This was a great class! I chose a lighter fabric that turned out to be more see-through than anticipated, so the leggings I made will be worn at home only, however they fit great! This was the first clothing item I've ever sewed for myself, and the first time I used an overlocker, and they made it very easy for us to do. It's very rewarding and a lot of fun!
