Jersey Leggings

This workshop will teach the skills to handle and create simple garments from stretch knit fabrics. You will make a pair of jersey leggings using a pattern supplied by us. Prior to making the leggings you will have the opportunity to try on a toile to check for size and fit. The length can be adjusted to suit your personal taste.

You will learn:

  • To measure & adapt the pattern to individual size
  • How to cut & handle stretch knit fabrics
  • Use appropriate stitching to allow the garment to stretch
  • Techniques to stop fabric puckering & stretching when sewing
  • To use an over locker

You will need: Approx 1 - 1.5 metres of 150cm/60" stretch knit fabric (1 for shorter lengths, 1.5 for longer). Fabric amount will also depend on size so please email for further details. Matching thread.

Suitable for: Someone who can use a sewing machine and would like to start creating simple garments from jersey.
