I made these awesome athletic-style leggings a while ago, and planned to take better pictures, but I never got around to it, so I’m just posting what I’ve got =).
My friend Erin sent me these AH-MAZING fabrics from Colorado Fabrics because she knew I wanted to sew some fun Sloan Leggings + I am so glad she did! I do have a soft spot in my heart for the crazy print, but above that, the FEEL of these fabrics is unbelievable. They’re stretchy, soft, and amazingly comfortable to wear. I wear them around the house, at cycling class, and even to the grocery store sometimes. The fabric is THICK and I don’t feel like my skin is showing at ALL. So, yeah, they’re comfortable + usable.
I sewed the full length, version two that features two contrasting fabrics in a size medium. These leggings also have a fun media pocket in the front for your cell phone, which is really handy! The Sloan Leggings were a super fast sew, that I know will become a repeat offender. The only change that I needed to make was tapering the hem a bit to fit snugly around my ankles. Other than that, the size medium was pretty spot on for me. I think if I sewed with fabric any less-stretch than this that I would need to go up a size to a large. But I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it =)
