Two easy sewing patterns for kids from 3 to 12 years old.
2 shapes: leggings for very stretchy materials (such as jersey or stretch rib) or jegging for medium stretchy materials (such as fleece or French terry with elastane)
3 lengths: long, 3/4 or short. No side seams
Ankle bands or hems depending on length
Waistband with inserted elastic or fancy elastic as a waistband
2 patterns for comfortable outfits, essential for the homewear or sports wardrobe.
The leggings have finished measurements that are narrower than your body measurements in order to be form-fitting. The pattern is worked in negative ease; the fabric will relax well and fit the body.
The jegging has measurements very close to the body. The medium-stretch fabric used to make them will stretch slightly. The jegging will therefore be slightly tight and comfortable. The shape is somewhere between leggings and jogging trousers.
Skill level: beginner
The leggings/jegging is quick and easy to sew as it has only a few pieces. It is therefore a perfect project for a beginner.
What you will learn with these patterns: how to assemble an elastic as waistband or a band with inserted elastic, how to make ankle bands or double needle hems.
Leggings: very stretchy fabric. Jersey, rib, openwork, with elastane
Jegging: medium stretch fabric. Fleece or French terry with elastane
Caution: 100% cotton fabrics (without elastane), even stretchy, can poke at the knees when worn and will be uncomfortable
Ribbing is recommended for the ankle band of long jeggings. Otherwise, make ankle bands in the main fabric.
