We are running low on leggings around here (they kind of disappear like socks...) I have bunch of great knits in my stash, so I thought I would throw together a few more pairs for spring.
I made these using my Flounce Legging Tutorial (the tutorial includes a free printable pattern.) Be sure to bookmark this pattern, now that I have learned how to create multiple pages in one pdf document, I am going to add more sizes and improve the pattern - and the pattern will still be free. (I'll announce the size addition on my blog, so if you follow, you'll know when I have updated the pattern.)
I lengthened the leg and left off the flounce for these leggings. If you want to do the same, just grab a pair of leggings you already have. Turn them inside out, line up the crotch seam of the leggings on the pattern and use them to get a length measurement. If you plan on adding a hem, just add an extra 1/2 inch at the bottom for the hem.
I am loving these coral/peach leggings! Such a hot color right now and she already has a couple of tops that have this color in them.
She wore the pink striped leggings to school today. (That's why they aren't in the title picture.) I made them especially to go with her Cascading Ruffle Peasant top. (click for that free pattern.)
