When Rebecca Page says Who wants to Work Out? – I knew I needed to answer the call! It’s been something I’ve been neglecting and last year I promised myself to start taking care of me again…I decided to refocus on me and I made myself a quilt and a few items of clothing. Working out was a regular thing in my past. I enjoyed running and all sorts of physical activity – however, the thoughts of doing that today – STOP when I think of going to buy athletic clothes.
Who wants to try it on in the store? I’m always disappointed when I go clothes shopping. Nothing fits right…It’s frustrating and then i want to go home and eat my feelings. See the vicious cycle?
My solution – make your own! Don’t close the tab yet…hear me out (prizes information down below!). But just think, how wonderful would it be to have even a pair of leggings that are 100% comfortable and totally your own style?
Rebecca Page Patterns has created a SUPER EASY pattern for making your own leggings! There is a kids leggings pattern as well! My kids love them. I made them matching camo leggings with a dinosaur print. To say they love them, is an understatement. I had to make them take them off after 2 days! Seriously.
This image – BTW – is of a pair of leggings my daughter wouldn’t even let me finish the hems around her ankles – because she wanted to wear them so badly! They were so soft she wouldn’t take them off.
Let’s talk fabrics…it’s hard to find clothing at a store in the athletic department that’s actually cute and is comfortable IN MY SIZE right? They never have the style in my size that I want. It’s looks so cute in the small size, but it’s not available in mine.
Again – making it yourself – totally fixes that!
So what about adults? RP has you covered. When I made the girls leggings, I was kicking myself for not making my own too! I had to go back and get that adult legging pattern.
I could NOT believe how easy it was to make them! I also made the Rebecca Page Bralette to go with it and I love them so much! I made the bralette with the pleated skirt option. I like my tummy covered.
This is flattering on all sizes – I believe. The top is a 2XL and my leggings are a 3XL. Hey, I carry my weight well. LOL – well, sort of. I’m normally a XL in American sizes, but Rebecca Page is across the pond and I measure differently over there. I don’t take it personally.
I really enjoyed making this set!
ANY beginner can make both the leggings AND
the bralette tank top in half a day!
I took an old shirt of my mother’s (from one of those famously soft overpriced clothing lines) and re-purposed it by making the top of the bralette from it. I wanted a pop of color and I think I achieved that. I used some athletic material in the heather grey and made the skirt and leggings. The end result is amazing!
They feel so soft and are so comfortable – I have no excuses now!
Well, maybe that I need to make a few more first…LOL!
