I’m celebrating babies today with a FREE Baby Go To Leggings sewing pattern! I’ve extended the sizes of my popular Go To Leggings pattern and I’m offering the baby sizes for free! Yay!
Gather your supplies:
- 1/2 yard knit fabric with at least 50% stretch
- 2/3 yard 1″ knit elastic (not NO-ROLL elastic)
- Coordinating thread (avoid 100% cotton thread, it will break easier)
These are so quick you can whip up a whole drawer full in a morning. The great thing about these is you can adjust the elastic for skinnier or chunkier babies. Custom leggings are perfect for babies because no two are the same size and length.
IMPORTANT! Don’t skip this part!
The important thing to consider when choosing your fabric is to make sure it’s stretchy enough. Some commercial knit fabric isn’t very stretchy. But babies need stretch. If you have a 10″ piece it should be able to stretch to at least 15″. That’s considered 50% stretch. More is great. You’ll want to stay away from slinky stretchy fabric, however. Those aren’t great for leggings. If you need more information about the stretch in fabric please read this post.
Alright, you’re ready to start sewing! Have fun with this pattern. If you’re going to share it I hope you’ll send people to this page to download directly from me. Thanks! Go download baby leggings HERE
