Yay for floral leggings!! I finally jumped in and am quite loving this trend!! So I am sewing for fall with florals! all the florals!
The Taylor Leggings* are well fitted leggings that can be made in 3 lengths – below knee, cropped and ankle. They also come with a full panel maternity option. The waistband is contoured rather than a regular folded waistband, providing for a flattering fit around the waist.
I have recently started hoarding florals from everywhere but especially So Sew English Fabrics from where I got this lovely floral double brushed poly. It has great stretch (over 100% horizontal) and recovery and is velvety soft to the touch. I had no trouble sewing with it either.
The Taylor leggings only have one seam along the inseam, so these come together express fast.
Here’s some more pattern information:
- Women’s sizes XXS-3X (00-26)
- Clearly written instructions with color photos or technical drawings

You can get this pattern free if you join the Laela Jeyne Facebook Group. Find the coupon code to download the pattern for free in the pinned post. I would definitely recommend giving this pattern a try especially for the contoured waistband!
The Women’s Sydney Slouchy Raglan* comes with options for a regular slouchy silhouette and a swing style silhouette along with high-low hemline and a regular hemline. The pattern also includes two sleeve options, a relaxed and a slouchy sleeve, along with two neck styles – V neck and off shoulder. There’s also the hooded cowl option.
For this version, I made a slouchy silhouette with a relaxed fit 3/4th length sleeve and high-low hemline style. I used a light weight ivory and grey french terry from Cali Fabrics. I love their fabric collection and love their shipping speed even more!
