Process:

1. Cut (with the fabric folded in half) the pattern legging, leaving less than 1 cm margin. So you have two mirrored pieces.

2. Fold each piece inside out and sew the leg between. (NEVER Basic stitch sewing machine, because it can burst and you do not want to put on a show)

3. Turn one of the legs inside out.

4.  Enter the leg that you just turned into the other leg and attach them between in The U form. So you join the two legs in the crotch of the legging.

5. Then turns out the pants and sew the hems of the legs. Take this time to try on the leggings and see if you have to adjust a little.

This way of setting the elastic band is better than to make a tunnel, because this way it will not move and twist inside.

And done! Isn’t it super easy to sew leggings? To me it’s much easier and faster than to sew a top!

Take advantage of these DIY leggings to be comfortable at the holidays, if you choose a bright elastic fabric or a sequins fabric it will look great!

Until the next post loves!

    Hola Anna, es la 1ª vez q escribo aunque te llevo leyendo desde hace ya bastante tiempo, el suficiente para adivinar q nos ibas a regalar un patrón! Jiji 😀
    La verdad es q eres súper apañada y haces q los diys parezcan sencillos de hacer!!
    Una pregunta, tu crees q este patrón m servirá adaptándolo de algunas partes y tamaño para hacerme unos baggy?? Es q quiero unos de terciopelo y como no los encuentro estoy pensando en hacérmelos aunque nunca m he echo un dyi d esta envergadura!

    Un saludo y sigue así q el blog es genial!!!

      ¡¡Hola Cris!! Que comentario mas bonito!!! 🙂 Gracias!!! Pues la verdad no te recomiendo que utilices este patrón para hacerte unos baggys…. pues el corte del tiro, su altura y la pierna estrecha es difícil adaptarla a un pantalón así… mejor si modificas el patrón de pantalón pitillo básico de mi post mas antiguo… ese te sera mejor para tu proyecto. Espero que te ayude, y te quede genial! gracias preciosa!!

      Hi geanina!! You have to print it on a big scale printer, or maybe your home printer has a diving sheet A4 if you visualize the PDF on 100% 🙂 Hope this helps

      Hi Felicia! What I mean with “basic sewing machine stitch” is the normal (basic) one line stitching all the sewing machine do (like this : ——- ) 😉 Hope this helps!

      Hola Lina! Este legging es con tiro medio (el clásico) si lo quieres mas alto solo debes agregar 2-4 cm hacia arriba a la parte de la cintura en paralelo a la linea y listo! 🙂

    Hola! Quería saber de qué forma puedo coser el terciopelo para que no se me reviente la costura 🙁
    Saludos!

      Hola Magdalena! Puede que lo que necesites es coserla con una overlock… Sino tienes, intenta haciendo una puntada de zig-zag. También puedes hacer varias pruebas con las tensiones de los hilos. Buena suerte 😉

    Hola! Genial el tutorial. Me podrias decir que cantidad de tela se necesita aproximadamente? Este tipo de tela en mi pais es un poco cara, asi que no quisiera comprar tela de mas. Gracias!

    Fantastic tutorial and brilliant pattern! thank you very much indeed. I had the pattern printed at a copyshop and then cut it out with about 1.5 cm margin (I eyeballed it) all around the pattern. I used a thick cotton jersey with 5% elastan with a lovely print, and the leggings came out beautifully. A bit skinnier than I had imagined, but they fit quite well. I didnt add an elastic in the waist becuase they already very figure-hugging. That was my absolute first pair of leggings ever made, and I am really pleased with the result. I am very grateful to you for offering the pattern and such clear indications. If you ever impart a sewing workshop please count me in – I’m also based in Barcelona – and my name is also Anna 🙂 ps. as soon as I take pictures I will send them to you by email so that you can post them online if you like them.

    Buenos días, buenisimo tu aporte, pero tengo una duda un poco mucho bruta, como hago para imprimirlo y que salga en la medida real del patrón? o tengo que adaptarlo de cuerdo a mis medidas o cuales medidas? jaja no se que hacer, perdón.
    Tengo cero idea de patrones.
    gracias!!!

      Guapa! tienes que imprimirlo en una impresora a gran escala (de 1 metro minimo) mejor llévalo a una copistería y que te lo impriman del tamaño real que esta hecho el documento, no tienes que retocarle nada. Buena suerte!
