Welcome, if you are stopping by on the Simple Leggings Pattern tour! As you may know, the fabulous liZ and Elizabeth of Simple Simon have released this girls leggings pattern that fits sizes 2T-14. If you follow this blog at all. then you also know that my gymnast practically lives in leotards and stretch pants, so this was a perfect fit (pun intended)!
Firstly, let me tell you about how incredibly easy this pattern is….
SUPER EASY! Like so easy it only has one pattern piece, three seams, one elastic casing, and no hemming necessary! Holy stretch pants, that is my kind of pattern.
I used a spandex blend that was labeled “active wear”, which was a dreamy match for these. Of course if you wanted a more casual everyday/schoolwear look, there are other options. Simple Leggings would look great in any knit!
Not only are they really wonderful to wear to the gym, but also paired with “street clothes” such as a t-shirt or dress or shirt and skirt combo, (like most people would wear), too. I know she is going to get a lot of use out of them, and has already requested more! Honestly, they took me about 10 minutes to sew up (it took longer to photograph), so I wouldn’t mind making a whole closet full!
