Prepare to Sew

Bring a little bit more style to your leggings with this pattern. This pattern harkens back to the yoga pants of the early aughts but with a more modern silhouette. As with the original yoga pants, you can wear the Nash leggings outside of your workout, paired with a denim jacket or your favorite sweater.

Fabric and Fit
Fabrics to shop: Similar to the Farah top, look for medium-weight knit fabrics with 4-way stretch, good recovery, and at least 50% stretch, such as cotton jersey, French terry, rib knits, ITY knits, and athletic knits.

Fabrics to avoid: These leggings need 4-way stretch! Don’t sew them with fabric that only has 2-way stretch.

Fit: If you can’t remember what yoga pants fit like, the Nash leggings have a slim fit that flares below the knee. If you have a pair of yoga pants leftover from previous decades, you can even measure them to get a sense of the fit, if you are using a similar fabric to sew.
