I adapted the Carol leggings pattern to be yoga/running tights. The length is shortened to a capri length. I always run in tights so this pattern will allow me to make my own tights as ready made tights are very expensive.
I added a stretch mesh detail to the inside calf.
Did this project completely on my sewing machine as I don’t have a serger. Used a walking foot and a small zigzag stitch for the seams. For the heam I used a stretch twin needle (with the walking foot).
