Lightning Leggings

$0.00 AUD

Level: Beginner

Newborn – Age 12


The Lightning Leggings is a  quick-sew unisex leggings pattern with all the options!

There are separate pattern pieces for cloth nappy wearers and for those in undies/ disposable nappies. There is also a relaxed option and a traditional slim fit option. Additionally, you can choose from an elasticated waist or a jersey cuff, and hemmed or cuffed legs. Finally, there are three lengths – ankle, capri and knee.

An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but all options can be made using a regular sewing machine.

The pattern is beginner friendly and designed for knit fabrics with good stretch and return such as cotton/Lycra jersey.

This listing is for 4 downloadable PDF files: Instructions, a print-at-home pattern, a copy shop pattern and a projector pattern.

Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

Take the copy shop file to a professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.

Use the projector file to project the pattern straight onto your fabric.

    These are the easiest leggings to put together, I was very surprised at first to the name but after making a pair and they really are super quick. Definitely making more.

    This is a fantastic pattern, really easy to sew with clear instructions and a lovely fit.
    I used it to make my tall daughter shorts that are long enough for her to slide comfortably on a slide without getting stuck unlike most girls RTW shorts! Simple to use an age 4 width and 5 length and they were perfect on the first try.
    As a new sewer iI did a whole pair in an evening including printing the pattern and cutting them out – the first garment where I didn’t have to unpick a single seam.
