Thanks for the reply Michelle. I prefer paper patterns in general - I just wondered if this might be the exception but it sounds like not.

@KathleenS, I think that the pattern is worth getting just for the drafting exercise. I have the printed pattern, which is on durable paper. With the PDF, you'll need to print out quite a few sheets of paper because the template/pattern piece is pretty large, but then you'd be able to cut directly from the template, rather than tracing. I think it depends on your personal preference.

They look like leggings! The draft your own is interesting and probably teaches you a bit more than usual about how a pattern needs to be designed/altered to fit your shape. Do you think this is a perfect pattern to buy the PDF or does having the tissue version still have advantages?

Great leggings. I need to make myself some of these. They look very comfortable.
