Pattern Design: Build your comfy go-to-wardrobe pieces with a staple you'll wear all year round - leggings!  

With just two pattern pieces. You could vary the length for more pattern possibiities, you'll be whipping up an army of these wardrobe workhorses. Leggings are versatile, layerable, and above all, comfortable. A girl's secret weapon in Melbourne's famous four seasons in one day weather! We've got all the tools you'll need: ball point needles, twin needles, overlockers. AND most importantly, you get an experienced teacher on hand to take you through the skills, techniques and how to use these tools for an amazing professional finish.

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: Look at jersey knits, merino wool knits, baby rib knit... It is essential you choose a two-way stretch. Also your leggings will retain their shape if there is 5-10% of lycra/nylon/elstain/etc in the fabric. 

For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.
