      I’d say: ok with a big top/shirt/tunic and boots or really nice shoes. Not ok with a little skimpy top and loads of bum showing… too naked for me, but then I’m getting old ;-)!

      NOT OK in my opinion! its one of my fashion pet peeves ;) i think probably about 1% of the female population could pull off looking good in leggings as pants, and I am not saying that 99% of us have inferior body types, its just that spandex is, well, spandex!…I think as long as something (long shirt, tunic) covers the bottom of the butt then its fine and they can look really cute …I am also still waiting for skinny jeans to go out of style, not quite as bad as leggings, (at least there is some structure in the bum) but again, they create a shape that just doesnt flatter most body types…

      no! pants are pants and leggings and leggings if you want leggings as pants then what you really want are tight pants

    A great pattern to have in ones arsenal….. I should know, I already have one! :-) I’ve made 2 pair so far and I’m sure I will make more this fall. These are super easy to make. I recommend using a jersy knit, since my second pair was a double knit and it didn’t have as much stretch. I sewed up both pairs on my regular machine with a simple stretch stitch and they turned out fine.

    They are great – but I have a question, can I do these on a normal sewing machine or would I need a serger/overlocker? A x

      you can try with a wide zig zag, but you’ll always get better results with an overlocker..

      overlock is ideal… but regular machine works fine, with zigzag stitch or any stretch stitch (i have a brother machine and is has an “overlock imitation” stitch, is very stretchy. you should try with scrap fabric the different stitches)
