Faux leather trusers or leggings. I originally intended to make some trousers but this fabric is very very stretchy despite being woven. I mean more stretchy than most cotton lycra wovens are, so I reckoned I could get a similar look from just making the trousers up using a normal leggings pattern. That meant no zip too so is faster and easier. I am quite happy with the results and intend to make more in different colours. I used a Mcalls M6173 pattern for this project and made view C and just added a waistband since the pattern does not have one, but it would work in any of the variants I think. You could also make these just by tracing round a pair of existing leggings if you had no pattern since there are only 3 pattern pieces, front, back and waistband. More on my blog here:
