Hello friends! I hope this finds you healthy and happy.
I haven’t been great at sharing allll of my pattern tests and makes lately, but I couldn’t let the latest one slip by with out sharing, because the pattern is really awesome!
You’ve seen me talk about Greenstyle patterns alot, and I have a closet full of athletic leggings to prove it! I’ll be honest, when I heard there was yet another athletic legging pattern in the works, I was skeptical and not sure why I’d need another one, when I’ve already found some that are my favorites. After making 5 pairs for myself, this pattern has quickly made it’s way to the top of my favorites list. So, let me share my findings and let the pattern speak for itself.
The pattern features two styles of pockets, slant and scoop. My animal print pair has the scoop pocket that you can see really well. There are also 2 different rises, and 2 waistband heights, 2 different length options and nice DEEP pockets. (the pockets are optional, but I mean, POCKETS). The design lines are SO flattering on so many different body types, and probably the best feature of all is that these have NO INSEAM. For a thick-thighed gal like myself, that means no chafing, no rubbing my inner legs. They also have an optional patch for the inner leg that you can add, and makes these the prime leggings for horse-back riding. They are also ideal for running, cycling, cleaning your kitchen, etc.
I used athletic fabrics to make these (also from Greenstyle).
Animal print is the Tan Cat fabric athletic poly spandex
Red is the Arete , which is also a poly spandex

Finally, here are some different views of the Cavallo leggings I made! I would definitely recommend this pattern! It’s great for beginners and pros alike, and is a quick and fun sew!
Since I am getting close to baby time, I had to try out a maternity waistband as well. (See my hack post here)
You can bet I’ll be living in comfort for the home stretch of my pregnancy!
Let me know if you try this pattern and what you think!
Until next time, happy sewing!
