Leggings. Who doesn't constantly wear a pair of leggings? The Sew Simple Leggings by So Sew Easy is a great beginner pattern with only one pattern piece! That means no side seams and a smoother final product. There are infinite ways to wear leggings, of course. We love them for exercising with a racerback tank. In the winter we cozy up in a pair of leggings and an oversized sweater. Wear these puppies under your ski pants, under your favorite knit dress or with a tunic and boots. This will be a wardrobe addition you'll likely be wearing every week.

Additional Notes

This 29-page PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with photos. Two yards of fabric will suffice for all sizes.

The additional video explaining where to measure was great for customizing fit.

I am a beginner sewer and these leggings are very easy to make! The waist line is a little higher than I like, but I took it down about 2 inches and it was perfect!
