Leggings

Standard

IMG_3939I’ve been on a quest for leggings.

Unfortunately the commercial patterns I tried just weren’t working.  I don’t mind tweaking, testing, then tweaking again for pants, but for leggings?

It just seemed like a waste of material.

And I got tired of the failure.

Trying to figure out what I was doing wrong (knits are supposed to be forgiving, aren’t they?) I went out the wonders of the Internet – searching for leggings, and found this wonderful site:  So Sew Easy.

Not only does she show you how to make the pattern, there’s even a formula filled spreadsheet (in inches and centimeters) that will calculate what values to use based on the amount of ease you want!  How cool is that?

Armed with tissue, pens and a straight edge away I went.  These were the very first pair, and they fit like a dream.  I can’t believe it.

I see more leggings in my future.

Yay!
