Description

We revisited the classic leggings pattern and updated it with ingenious seaming (no center front seam!) and a gusset. View A has a wide contoured waistband. View B is finished with an elastic at the waist. Three length options: mid-thigh shorts, capri, ankle.

Recommended Fabric

Stretch knit with stretch in the width AND length and a nice recovery (cotton spandex, nylon/spandex).

Easier than I anticipated
First time making my own leggings & I was a tad nervous especially as the fabric was quite expensive.
I found the pattern so incredibly simple to use. I was a bit surprised at just how quickly I was able to whip them up & just how easy it was to make them.
So nice being able to just print the size I needed. I’m an amateur sewer so I don’t have a fancy overlocker but it’s easy enough to make with just a normal sewing machine.
I thought the seem allowance needed to be a bit more generous due to them being designed for exercise (lots of movement & strain on the seems Etc). That will be easy for me to remedy myself next time I make them though so won’t put me off using the pattern again. Already planning to make some as a gift for my sisters birthday they’re such a great & comfortable fit - as well as eying up other fabrics to make myself some more!

Great Leggings!
These leggings are great! I'm always wary of wearing my creations to the gym, but these have held up really well. I love the lack of the front seam and they were so quick. I am longer in the torso so I will have to lengthen the waist, but everything else was quick, easy, and well-fitting.

No way to adjust for heavier legs
Instructions and construction techniques both good. I have heavy legs and was a bit concerned no thigh measurements were given for such a close fitting garment, but went ahead and cut my size figuring my high quality 70% stretch supplex fabric would make up for any minor fit variations. The leggings turned out so tight I literally couldn't get them on. If thigh measurements had been supplied I wouldn't have wasted my time and my fabric.

Love, love, love this pattern!
I absolutely love this pattern. A quick, easy sew and a great fit. The high waist is really comfy and hides the mummy tummy well. The only thing I could ask for is a small pocket, maybe on the inside, to put my keys in when I go running. I added one myself, but it would be a huge bonus if it was included in the pattern.

Never buy another pair of leggings again.
These are PERFECT! The high waist, the elastic treatment on the waist, the smooth finish, the ease of sewing, the size range...Do yourself a favor and buy this pattern and then never buy another pattern or pair of leggings again.

Side seam free leggings!
I love how smooth these leggings are! A very flattering fit. It can be tricky to do the gusset in the smaller sizes, so some patience is needed there. <a href="https://auschick.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/jalie-clara-leggings-adele-flutter-sleeve-top/">I've written more about this pattern on my blog over here</a>.

I love this pattern!!
These are the most comfortable and best fitting leggings that I own! I will never buy store bought leggings again. I have a bit of a belly and they just slim everything down and hold it in place. Just perfect!

Perfect Fit Leggings!
These leggings were so quick and easy to make and no alterations were necessary! I made the wide waistband option with the cropped length. The instructions and diagrams were very easy to follow and even a beginner will not have a problem with the gusset pattern piece.
