We revisited the basic leggings pattern and updated it with ingenious seaming (no center front seam!) and a gusset and option for a contoured waistband.

  • View A has a wide contoured waistband with hidden elastic to keep your leggings in place.
  • View B is finished with an elastic at the waist.
  • Three length options: mid-thigh shorts, capri, ankle.

Because it has no front seam and no side seam, it is the perfect sewing pattern for asymmetrical spandex prints. The ultimate basic leggings pattern, that you can wear with a chic tunic or our free sweater pattern.

Check out the free tutorials under "Tutorials and resources" to learn how to hack these into leggings without gusset or to change the look of the back waistband.

Mon patron préféré

Je recommande ce patron à tous(tes). Il tient bien sur le corps et ne descend pas. Vraiment confortable dans du jersey de bambou. J'ai fait 5 leggins, 3 en capri.

Favorite leggings

The no front seam makes these comfy and a quick sew. Thank you for a well drafted pattern. My grand daughter loves these! And so do I.

The ultimate legging

As I struggle to gain access to the dining table for cutting amidst the other crafters in the house, I dove straight in with my expensive fabric. I was putting my faith in all the great reviews I’d read. I can confirm the reviews were right! The fit is superb, the leggings look and feel fantastic! I was doubly impressed because I used horizontal stripes and the “no side seams” and “no centre front seam” eliminated the majority of pattern matching. Plus they were so quick and easy to make. I can’t wait for the dining table to be free again so I can make several more.

Second skin

These are my favourite funktional thing I've made. I made the shorts version and from someone who has camel-toe issues more often than I'd like to admit, these pants are perfect. I wore them to a pole dance class, they stayed where they should and are so comfortable. Instructions are clear and the Jalie customer service is on point, they were very patient when I contacted them about silly beginner questions. Super quick to make, would recommend!
