Before sewing

The pattern of these leggings is suitable for elastic fabrics: light-weight cotton lycra jersey, biflex fabric.

For stripes, choose a contrasting fabric. Optionally, stripes can be decorated with decorative strap.

Use serger (overlock) to sew this leggings. In case you don’t have serger, replace it with a stretch stitch or zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. Use rubber elastics in sewing swimwear top.

While sewing we recommend to baste the details together before stitching to avoid displacement of the upper fabric.
