You guys, I’m so bad at keeping secrets and so excited to finally be able to post this! A few months ago I got a super exciting email asking if I’d like to test Megan’s Virginia leggings pattern, just released last week. I said yes of course, because if Megan Nielsen asked me if I wanted to test a potato sack pattern I would probably do it.
I made three pairs of leggings so far but I’ve only photographed my first pair. I used a stretchy sort of thermal-ish fabric for these just because I absolutely adored the bright bold print. The fabric probably isn’t totally right for the pattern since it doesn’t feel as snug and structured as I would want leggings to feel, but it works. I was so in love with them that I even started knitting this sweater specifically to wear over them and my brown leather boots.
For my second pair, I knew I wanted to make some athletic leggings that I could run in. I scoured eBay and found this moisture-wicking fabric and bought some to try it out. Those turned out great too! My third pair is made from a floral knit that I haven’t photographed because I cannot for the life of me find anything in my wardrobe that remotely looks good with it. Epic fail on the fabric choice.
Anyway, I highly recommend this pattern! It was actually a bit ridiculous how easy these came together, even as someone with very limited experience in sewing with stretch fabrics. It’s literally two pieces. Plus the pattern’s only available in PDF which means no waiting on stupid shipping time!
Hmm I should make a solid pair just because of the whole “I need more solids in my wardrobe” issue but I keep thinking I need a pair of glittery ones. Or with sequins incorporated somehow. Or a cuter floral. Or polka dots! Whee!
