Espresso Leggings – FAIL

I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Espresso Leggings by Sewing Cake. I bought the PDF pattern and went from there.

It was easy enough to tape together, and follow the directions for making the custom pattern. As per usual, I lengthened the pattern by about 2 inches, cut it out, and zoomed it together on the serger.

…I don’t even have a picture of these. I think I just threw the failed muslin away. There was no way that I was going to put a picture up on the internet – the word “vulgar” comes to mind. There’s nothing wrong with the pattern, I used the completely wrong fabric to make these. It was not a very stretchy t-shirt knit, and I could see right through the fabric to my knickers.

Not the look I’m wanting.

I really need to add some more width to the thighs and bottom, and add about 3 inches to the back, and make it in the correct fabric.
