Asymmetrical Leggings Pattern and American Girl Pattern

New pattern in the shop! A favorite from the clothing line so I’ve added it to the pattern line: The Asymmetrical Leggings…..and even added a miniature pattern for the American Girl style dolls.

Pattern can be sewn with regular sewing machine or a serger.  Any stretchy cotton/lycra/spandex blend works great as well as stretchy ribbed cotton like the kind used in tank tops.
