Taylor Leggings

Laela Jeyne just updated the Taylor leggings and I gotta say, I’m a fan! I’ve got a number of legging patterns, most of them free ones, but none fit me quite so well as the Taylors. The elastic in the waistband gives extra support and I feel like these are the first leggings I’ve made that didn’t need major adjustments to the seat area.

In addition to my sewing habit, I’m currently in the middle of training for my first half marathon and on cooler mornings I like to wear knee length leggings like these that I made in pink (Fabric Mart) and gray (JoAnn Fabrics) athletic knit fabrics.

During the summer I have to carry an epipen when I run due to a bee sting allergy so any athletic wear with pockets big enough to carry an epipen are a huge plus for me.

The pattern comes with a generous number of variations. I saw a few other testers throw in a some mesh fabric on one panel which looked super cool.

Moon Wide Leg Pants

I’ve been seeing pleated front pants popping up in trends, but as a child of the 80s I just couldn’t get behind it. Until now. I trust Sinclair to put out a great, well drafted pattern so I couldn’t wait to dive into the new Moon Wide Leg Pants and was not disappointed.

Now for a disclaimer: I tested a very early version of these pants so the fit is slightly different in the final pattern for sale. The final version is a bit slimmer with a lot less volume in the back and then pleats are optional. That said, the look is very much the same.

As with all Sinclair patterns, this one comes in sizes 0-22 and Petite, Regular, and Tall. Mine are size 8 – Tall. I fall right on the bottom edge of the tall sizing but I wanted them to be long so I could wear heels. This pattern can also be made in shorts and culotte length, and has an optional attached front tie.

These are a light weight chambray with a linen look that purchased from Fabric Mart a few months back.

The back of the Moon Pants uses encased elastic, so these are super comfortable as well. After I finished taking pictures I ended up just wearing these around the house the rest of the day.

Oh, and I happened to have paired these pants with another Sinclair pattern you might recognize from a previous blog post: the Danielle Batwing Top.
