Lil Misses pants have been getting holes in them, around the knees.
Now they look comfy!
Basically I just made my leggings as normal, and instead of making a casing for the elastic at the top, I added doubled over knit ribbing.
To do this I made the ribbing measure 1 1/2 inches shorter than the width of the pants waist ( to allow for stretch )
Then I sewed together along the side to create a tube.
Then I doubled the ribbing over and sewed the raw edges to the leggings waist, matching my seam to the back pants seam.
So that the pants didn't stretch out over time I added 1/4 inch elastic to the waist seam.
Measure your childs waist, cut elastic to measurement.
Sew two ends together, then sew using a large zig zag stitch on to the seam as shown.
Stretch as you sew. You may want to pin to four equal points before you sew.
And there you have it comfortable pants/leggings!
