Introducing Frances – snug leggings pattern for babies to tweens!

The next new pattern is here! Meet Frances a leggings pattern for kids. Leggings are an essential addition to our little explorer’s wardrobes. They are so versatile and easy to wear. My little girl lives in her leggings. Whether worn with a sweatshirt or under a dress or tunic top there are never enough pairs of leggings in her wardrobe to cater for the daily wear she gives them.

Of course its not just girls that wear leggings, little boys especially babies and pre-schoolers look super cute in leggings too. The leggings pattern includes an extensive range of kids sizes catering for babies from 3 months old right up to tween sizes. For boys or a looser fit you might want to size up.

The leggings feature a hem cuff band at the ankle. The pattern has a separate waistband for elastic insertion.

The Frances leggings were recently featured worn with our other latest new pattern the Lillia Rae dress and top Our beautiful little model here wearing baby size leggings with her Lillia Rae dress.

The leggings are designed for stretch fabric with a 60% stretch. There is a good choice of stretch cotton fabrics available. The best option is to choose a jersey fabric with 4-6% elastane/lycra for good recovery. Avoiding saggy knees!

Bobbins and Buttons online shop is always well stocked with printed and plain cotton/elastane jersey fabrics ideal to use for this leggings pattern. The baby leggings here are made from plain duck egg blue cotton/elastane jersey. We stock this jersey fabric in over 20 colours.

This leggings pattern is an ideal project for beginners wanting to work with stretch fabrics. They can be made with or without an overlocker too.

We hope you have fun making your Frances leggings, as always if you feel like sharing your makes on social media use #releaseyourhandmade so we can find you.
