Draft Yourself a Paneled Pair of Leggings with our Sloper


Leggings are one of my favorite things to make, I started making them straight out of fashion school in all sorts of fun prints and panels. I wanted to share how I utilize our legging sloper to make a cool and edgy pair of leggings!

WARNING: Once knowing how to make leggings, you will not be able to stop. You will constantly buy tight and bright lycra fabrics and panel all sorts of them together in cool style lines. They will also be the only type of pant you will want to wear, because they are so comfortable and people will always compliment them. So keep a sketch book close at all time because you will always be thinking of new legging ideas!
