Mix and match your shorts and leggings for the perfect workout outfit with this pattern!
Imagine a workout wardrobe customised to the style and fit that you love. It’s easy to achieve in less than three hours from cutting to wearing with the Sports Shorts & Leggings from Rebecca Page. The shorts and leggings can be sewn together or worn as separate pieces. The classic design of the shorts features a curved side seam and gathered waist for easy movement and comfort. The leggings have one seam and sew up in a few short minutes. Choose from four leggings length options – short, mid-thigh, mid-calf, and full length.
This sporty sewing pattern has incredibly-detailed instructions that will guide you step-by-step to a pair of leggings and shorts you can wear for all your fitness fun, in all seasons, and when you just want to be comfy.
You’ll need a four way stretch knit with a 5-12% Lycra or Elastane for the leggings as they are intended to be form-fitting. You will get the best results with fabrics such as cotton Lycra, nylon Lycra, jersey polyester Lycra. Increasing this content will result in a compression fit.
You can make your shorts with a lightweight woven or stretch fabric and you can sew this on a regular sewing machine with a stretch stitch, or with an overlocker or serger. The pattern includes sizes XXS to 5XL and 12 months to 12 years.
