This is a digital sewing pattern for close-fitting, workout leggings with contrast swirl design on the upper front thigh leading to the upper back. There’s a hidden pocket inside at the upper centre back, perfect for gels, keys, or your phone, and contrast panels at the back of you knees are perfect for mesh fabrics. An elasticated, high-rise waistband means they won’t shift around as you move, either!
UPDATE: NOW WITH NEWLY–ADDED SIZE XXS! You asked for it, I delivered – I’ve now added a smaller, XXS size to the pattern for all you smaller ladies!
Intermediate sewing skills are required for this pattern – some experience with sewing knits is expected. Note that this pattern requires stretch jersey fabric with good recovery – it is drafted with negative ease!
1cm (3/8”) seam allowances are included except for the waistband edge, where a 4cm (1 1/2in) elastic allowance is included. A 3cm (1 1/4”) hem allowance is also included.
This pattern is designed and tested to print onto both A4 and US Letter paper, and uses 24 pages for the pattern. A “Print at Copy Shop” version is available upon request.
I am a long-distance runner and also a sewist – I’ve long been disappointed by the quality and fit of exercise clothing available on the market, so I’ve been sewing my own for the past few years – even running two full marathons in my own leggings! All my digital sewing patterns have been road-tested by myself and a team of fellow fit sewists.
