Pattern Description: leggings in two different sizes - shorts and capri length.
Pattern Sizing: 134-170cm; I traced and sewed a size 140 according to K's hip measurement and accounting for negative ease
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes they all did!
Were the instructions easy to follow? They are easy to follow but I'll be honest, I didn't use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that I can add a basic wardrobe stable for Miss K inexpensively and giving her a variety of colors and patterns.
Fabric Used:Pink Shorts - 1/2 yard of Stretch Jersey Knit Solid Bright Pink (96% Rayon 4% Poly) $1.50
Wild Pink Capri length - 1/2 yard of stretchy ribbing from old pajamas $ free
Soft light blue and white polka dots - 1/2 yard Rayon Blend Jersey Knit Pin Dots Aqua/White $1.62 (bought from my first order from Fabric.com back in Jan 23, 2012!)
TOTAL for 3 leggings: $3.12 - Way better than buying them for $6 a piece at Wal-mart in boring colors!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the pink shorts version first and folded 1" out of the rise (1/2 inch fold = 1 inch out). The shorts fit perfect size wise but were just a tad too low-rise in the waist. Then I sewed two pairs of the capri length and left them as the pattern is - they fit perfectly.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will be sewing up a ton of these as the seasons change. K always needs leggings under her skirts and dresses - especially in school and on gym days. (I would not suggest using loose rib knit material because they stretched too much out of shape and didn't hold the legging shape).
Conclusion: I'm so glad I found the size I wanted and can vary the lengths as needed. When we were at the store yesterday I asked K if she wanted me to buy her some leggings and she replied "No, I like the ones you make better, they are more comfortable." Win for mom!
