In this Baby Leggings Workshop, you will choose from two pattern variations in sizes 000 to 3 and make a cute little pair of leggings over 3 hours. Both leggings styles feature cuffs at the ankles and an elastic waistband. You can choose contrasting fabrics for the cuffs and waistband for endless colour combinations. In this workshop you will use stretch stitches on the sewing machines and you can choose to use overlockers if you wish.
With only 3 pattern pieces, this is a great choice if you have taken our 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top or Traditional T Shirt Course where we cover how to sew with knit fabrics. Alternatively, if you have made a couple of garments and are keen to try sewing with knits, a workshop with a teacher on hand is the ideal way to go about it!
