Marisa of Laela Jeyne Patterns has really upped the bar for legging patterns with her Deluxe Charlotte Legging & Sweatpants Pattern.
This expanded version of the Charlotte Leggings offers sweatpants in addition to the fitted leggings, various waistbands (elastic, band, yoga waistband), lengths (boy short, short, knee length, capri, & ankle); and there are pocket options for each and jogging instructions. Basically, I’m throwing out my various pant patterns and replacing with this all-in-one (sizes 6M-14 for girls or 6M – 6 years for boys!).
My favorite creation with this pattern so far is the bubble look. It’s so sweet, paired with a peasant top, tunic, onesie, or a naked baby belly. I can’t get enough of them for my girls (6 months, 2.5, and 4). Marisa has done a great job of fine-tuning the various sizes so to look great on such a wide range of sizes.
If you love the bubble look and want to make this style, you’ll want the “shorts” length, the yoga waistband, and the leg elastic. That’s it! I also add some twill tape for cute factor!
