Xtra Long Leggin'

Added Sep 22, 2009

by ginasophia

Bridgeport, Conn...






These are just some basic black leggings I made for the fall. They are super long and gather up at my ankles. I love wearing them around the house, I think I may have to make a few more pairs to wear out. I actually looked at the Jochen pattern I used ages ago as a very loose guide to make a well fitting pant

Material Notes

cotton blend jersey, elastic for the waist band




Garment Type

    I love these! I’ve been looking for a nice pair of long leggings on the cheap so now I guess I’ll just make them myself!

    How cute! Thanks for adding that you used a men’s slack pattern. I’m only 5’4" but, (or lack there of) mostly leg. I believe I will give it a go.

    These are great! I’m looking to make some of these myself as I’m on the tall side and always find store leggings just a little short. What is this Jochen pattern? I’d love to try it.

      it is actually a mens slack pattern here on burdastyle. I only used it to get the proportions for the… crotch… area but thats because I dont have much experience with pants
