Let’s be honest here…you know I LOVE THEM!!!! Why? Because I have NEVER worn leggings in public as an adult. NEVER!! I also thought they made me look fat. I felt they clinged too much. However, these really fit & fit well!! So in honor of football season, why not get comfy while cheering your favorite team? Yes, I’m wearing a UGA shirt & proud to wear it well! Yes, I’m still a Clemson girl at heart. Promise, I’m not converting my orange blood to red! LOL!

Were the instructions easy to follow? The directions are easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that the dress offers so many different options. This is a great staple piece. Easy to transition through all seasons.
Fabric Used: Swim and Jersey Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The first pair I made using swim fabric. They seemed to roll down because my crotch inseam is short. I shortened the length by 2″ on this pair also. On the second pair, I cut the waistband shorter and they did not roll down. Overall, the jersey knit pair felt much better to me.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I’m planning on sewing up a few pairs to double as workout clothing. YES!
