… I was around first time they were fashionable…

… I drafted my own pattern, snapped up all the jersey I could find from my local market fabric seller, and sewed up leggings in every colour under the sun…

… the legging trend faded, I still had my leggings, I mainly used them to sleep in…

… at a meeting in Rome all those years ago and one of my colleagues mentioned she was going running each morning in the Circus Maximus. I asked to join her and then realised I hadn’t packed running gear (probably the only time in my life that has happened). Not to worry, a t-shirt, my red and pink striped leggings and a pair of trainers… no one would notice at 6am. A couple of years later, talking about that week, I mentioned to the group we had been running each morning, I wasn’t prepared, so I had gone in my pyjamas, my colleague commented “I did wonder…”

… leggings seem to be back, super simple to make, super versatile, this pattern by “teach me fashion” looks extra comfortable with the jersey waist instead of elastic, the pattern is very reasonable, and you get a clear video to guide you through the make…

… I will be recommending this to newbie sewing friends, and I will keep following the “teach me fashion” series, this is their third pattern and video combo, I really like what this mother and son team are doing…
