This is a free leggings pattern front for children. This pattern is drafted using the hip measurement only. It is intended for stretchy knit fabrics with a minimum stretch factor of 50% on the cross grain and 18% on the straight grain. When using knits with less stretch, add additional ease. Visit the variables page in the manual to learn more about the ease options.
The pattern has a fold-over waistband set to 2" / 5 cm by default. If you want the waistband wider, change the waistband width variable. The hem is set to 3/8" / 1cm. The waist and hem have a seam allowance applied for turnover edge finishes.
The side seam is straight on the front and back patterns, which allows you to create a one-piece design eliminating the side seam.
This pattern uses the natural waistline. If you want the pants to sit lower, add a waistline drop value.
