Description

April is National Serger Month so in honour of sergers I made my FAVORITE thing to sew with just a serger… Leggings! Leggings truly are one of my favorite things to sew, and using just a serger it takes no time. I used our Knit Leggings Sloper and drafted some panel seam lines on it to panel my plain black and “leather” looking spandex together. I also added a wide band at the top of the leggings instead of serging in elastic. I also do this to every pair of leggings I make since it makes the leggings more slimming around the tummy (control top!).

Check out the BurdaBlog tomorrow for a post on how I drafted and sewed these leggings in honour of National Serger Month!

Material Notes

Nylon/Spandex blend in plain black and “leather” look.

    Such great leggings – I love the paneling you did. Gives them great dimension! Plus, yeah, the top. I’ve had that exact concept in my head, just trying to figure out how to execute it, so loved to see you wearing it!

      Oh yes, leggings are the best part of getting a serger… so many leggings! And the serger sews them in the most secure way where the legging seams don’t pop!

      Haha thanks :) Although I don’t sew as many leggings as I would like to, I still love to make and wear them loud and proud.
