Simplicity 2156 - Little girl leggings

Pattern Review:

Simplicity 2156

Pattern Description: Child's & Girl's jumper, jacket and knit leggings and dress or top sewing pattern. I made the leggings only.

 Pattern Sizing: Girls 3-14

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy only two pieces for the leggings.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that they were so easy and quick as I had to make three pairs in three different sizes for three different little girls.

Fabric Used: Some kinda knit I got off the clearance-red tag rack at JoAnn's. I saw it and knew that it would be perfect for these girls ages 6-10

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I really did like the leggings but I would like to make the jumper or the jacket. The jacket has an adorable little ruffle detail at the back!

I really struggled with where to photograph these leggings! Plus I had little man jumping up and down in the background yelling "Take my picture Momma! Take my picture Momma!!"

I couldn't argue with that...he was beggin' me after all:)

I have one other thing I have sewn up recently (and it is adorable too!) but I can not share it until sometime tomorrow because it is a present for someone I work with and she might be reading this right now!!

    1. Thanks! It really was a great buy. It's a nice thicker knit AND it was a steal at $9 for 3 yards!!

  2. So cute that he wanted his picture taken too! I'm new to sewing, I haven't used many patterns yet, but I'd like to get started with simple ones one of these days.
