The Diamondback Leggings PDF pattern is for an athletic style tights leggings with a cut out feature at the lower leg. The overlapped cut out section can be made with the same stretchy material as the main leggings, but when using a contrast stretch mesh fabric, the crossed over section forms a diamond shape that lends a dramatic flare.
The cut out uses fold-over elastic at the edges to add a pop of color or contrast as well as a clean finish.
There are high and low waistband options and both use 1/4″ (6mm) elastic at the upper edge to stay in place, so they’re great for sporting activities.
Drafted for knit fabric with at least 75% four-way stretch, all views of the leggings work well in fabrics from double brushed poly, to athletic knits, to swim.
With sizing from newborn through 16 years, the Diamondback Leggings are perfect for kids of all ages. Sew up a pair for your favorite dancer, swimmer, runner, jumper, player, or yogi today!
