Leggings for Amélie
I have been hunting through my Ottobre magazines, and my Top Kids magazines on the hunt for a leggings pattern. Everything I found either had a seam down the outside leg, or wasn't in a small enough size, or was too baggy. I did try adapting one of my Kwik Sew patterns, but there was a LOT of adjustment going on, and I realised that I would have to do the same thing over again when I made it in a bigger size.
Anyway, last night on Facebook, Lisa from Crafty Mamas posted a picture of a new pattern she is selling in her shop and I was unable to resist. It's the Knit Leggings pattern, by Whimsy Couture, and it's an e-pattern, so you can buy it online and it is emailed to you in pdf format. There was a little bit of cutting and taping required to assemble the pattern, but it isn't too bad when it is for little clothes.
Since there was no waiting around for the postie to arrive, I managed to whip these up last night. Talk about instant gratification!
