Pattern Description: Create custom-fit leggings in a flash! The innovative Espresso template from Cake RiFFs makes it simple – just measure, mark, and connect the dots for a pattern that fits just right and sews up quickly. Elastic waistband slips smoothly beneath other layers.
Pattern Sizing: 25 – 55″ waist.
Did it look like the drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, they are a fair representation.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions both for drafting the pattern to your measurements, and the construction were excellent.
Fabric Used: a slinky type knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none, these are as drafted. Next time, I will lower the waistline a little as I think I erred in my self-measuring.
Would you sew it again? Yes, I will definitely make these again. I love to wear leggings rather than tights under my winter boots, and I can have some fun with some knits.
I think these would also be excellent for custom drafted thermal leggings too.
Conclusion: A quick easy pattern, with awesome results.
