Monthly Pattern Review

I think I can make a proper review, as a certified sewer, of Fancy Pants Leggings! I've made 8 pairs so far... My Xmas presents this year for the kids were pyjamas and I always use the Fancy Pants Leggings for the bottoms, it's really comfy!
Laura is one of the best pattern makers ever. All Titchy Threads patterns are great. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, if you are a beginner you will certainly be able to sew a pair (it's a good one to start if you are afraid of knits). It goes from 0-3 months to 10 years. Regarding this pattern I only have one thing to comment, it runs to small for my taste, I like the leggings to fit perfectly to the legs but not so tight. I always make 2 sizes larger on the width with the waistband and height on the correct size (personal taste comment)
You might find this review a little shorter than the others, but Laura's Patterns are flawless, so there's not much to say...
I've only used it for pyjamas, but this is a great pattern for outdoor leggings too!
