Our Perfect Leggings pattern comes with three cutting lengths and two embellishment options for a different look each time you sew them. Play with different hemming options like lettuce-edge rolled hems, or use stretch trims or decorative buttons to add extra flair. Our leggings are designed with a higher rise in the back and a slimmer fit through the legs.
