This is now the FIFTH time I’ve sewn this Papercut “Ooh La Leggings” pattern, which is shocking for me since I hardly ever sew the same pattern twice! But the other four pairs were all for running, and I really, really wanted a pair I could just lounge around in! I found some grey “denim-look” jersey so I whipped these up in an evening and they’re SO comfortable! Also have a look at my better elastic waistband tutorial for some great finishing tips.
“Denim-look” jersey from tissufabrics.co.uk – I’m so happy this pattern only needs 1m of (150cm wide) fabric, too! These cost me £5 total!
