I have been meaning to try a few other girls leggings patterns for Baby Girl. She is starting to grow out of her old leggings I made her last year. I have been eyeing the fawn leggings for awhile now. The Fawn Leggings sewing pattern by Petite Stitchery looked super cute with the optional tuxedo stripe down the side, so I decided to go ahead and try them out. You can find the pattern here.
Aren’t they gorgeous? I made the Fawn Leggings in a pink and black floral stretch velvet called precious from Sly Fox Fabrics. This is actually my first fabric ever from sly fox fabrics and I am in love. So is Baby Girl! The tuxedo stripe is in a solid hot pink stretch velvet, also from Sly Fox Fabrics. They both compliment each other so well! I love when I am able to find fabrics that match so well!
The tuxedo stripe is a great scrap buster! You can even use woven fabric as your tuxedo stripe. They do recommend going up a size if using woven fabric. My scrap piece of pink stretch velvet was four way stretch, however it was not tall enough to use the most stretchy side in the right direction. Therefore, I decided to go up one size, just in case. However, I think my fabric was stretchy enough; I could have just stayed in her normal size. Good news is she will be able to wear these for a long time!
I planned on making Baby Girl a matching shirt to go along with Fawn Leggings, however she has not been feeling well for the last few days. Which shirt should I make her from Petite Stitchery? Maybe the girls Lulu Dolman, like I made us for Christmas?
This is how she felt about pictures this morning. Her pajama shirt matches her new leggings by pure accident. Poor girl woke up this morning vomiting phlegm. 🙁 I bribed her with some Paw Patrol videos on my phone for pictures. She does love her new Fawn Leggings though and the super soft stretch velvet fabric from Sly Fox Fabrics. Hopefully, they make her feel a little better today! You can find the Fawn Leggings sewing pattern by Petite Stitchery here. The pink and black floral stretch velvet from Sly Fox Fabrics can be found here, along with the pink solid stretch velvet here.
Before I am off to give Baby Girl extra cuddles today, I have a few questions:
- What matching shirt should I make Baby Girl (Bonus if its a Petite Stitchery top)
- Can you put HTV on stretch velvet? Will it stick properly?
