FREE sewing pattern for the Ribbed Leggings (Newborn-9/10)


It’s always lovely when we are able to bring you a FREE sewing pattern, and this beginner pattern is fabulous.

The designer, Lowland Kids Patterns, has made this FREE sewing pattern for these Ribbed Leggings and has given you three finish options: shorts, full length hemmed, and full length cuffed.

Ribbed leggings are an amazing staple for any time of the year, and with an incredible FIFTEEN pattern sizes, from Newborn to 9/10, you’ll be able to make a new pair of these very regularly as your little one grows up.

With a slim fit, Lowland Kids Patterns highly recommend using a rib-knit fabric for these leggings as most rib has ample stretch. If you want to use a fabric with less stretch such as cotton lycra or a fabric with rayon (some rib with a higher rayon content applies), they suggest sizing up in width a size or two. Many of the designer’s pattern testers found that two sizes up worked great for cotton lycra.

The designer also mentions that another important measurement is the inseam. If you grade the waist/hip measurements and inseam you will get the best fit possible! Because this is a slim-fitting pant and many kiddos are so different, most of their testers found that they needed to grade between sizes so please go by the measurement chart! Please read through the instructions before starting!
