21 Leggings Patterns

Feb 10, 2023 | General Crafts, Sewing

I love to wear dresses, so in the winter, I am all about layering. Tights are great, but for those extra cold days when I need something a little thicker, leggings are the way to go. Leggings are quickly becoming a universal staple in everyone’s wardrobe. You can wear them to the gym or the couch or pair them with a blouse and heels for a more fashion-forward look. If your leggings aren’t standing out in your wardrobe this season, you may want to think about upping your game. Let’s look at a few leggings patterns to make before this new year!

Leggings Patterns

Consider a pair that includes elevated details like, say, a flared silhouette, visible front seam, ankle slits, or stirrups. The best leggings should make you feel like you’re wearing a pair of tailored trousers instead of something you’d spend all day on the couch wearing. Whether you make it in classic black or vibrant colors and mesmerizing prints, these leggings below can do no wrong!
