So the last week of Indie Pattern Month is upon us, It has been such a fun month and these challenges have brought me out of my sewing/blogging slump!
This was the only on of the challenges that I planned in advance and actually made these at the end of May!
This week is One Pattern, Two Takes.
And without further ado! I give to you my Two pairs of Espresso Leggings by Cake Patterns!
This is actually the 5th and 6th pair of leggings I have made from this pattern! I LOVE IT!
This pattern is great I love that you can just plot your points and get a pattern that fits you perfectly (sometimes with minor adjustments needed due to fabric types)
This first pair is made from a printed polyester knit that I got from spotlight about 3 months ago.
Due to the slight lack of stretch lengthways they have turned into 3/4 length leggings but that is all good!
This pattern is super easy to sew up with just 3 seams, inner legs and crotch, plus elastic on the waist and hems on the cuffs. These two pairs only took me about an hour to cut and sew!!!
And onto the second pair, these made with a black nylon Lycra from Levana, I got this at their huge sale in Wellington at the end of last year!
Pattern: Espresso Leggings by Cake Patterns
Fabric: Pair one, Polyester Knit from Spotlight $12-$15 pm (I can’t actually remember)
Pair two: Nylon Lycra Knit from Levana, $1 a metre at their awesome sale!!! This pattern uses 1m so it is a really economical make!
Both these pairs have been worn heaps over this month, and I have more from this pattern planned.
As well I love leggings and they are a staple garment in my wardrobe and well when something is working for you why stop?
Hope you have enjoyed my makes for indie pattern month, it has been a blast!
It seems today is must pull a funny face day! Sorry about the appalling photos!!!
