Lightning Leggings

(1 customer review)


Prem./Small Newborn – Age 12

A quick-sew leggings pattern with all the options!


There are separate pattern pieces for cloth nappy wearers and for those in undies/disposable nappies. There is a relaxed option and a traditional slim fit option. You can choose from an elasticated waist or a jersey cuff, and hemmed or cuffed legs. There are three lengths – ankle, capri and knee.

An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but all options can be made using a regular sewing machine.

The pattern is designed for knit fabrics with good stretch and return such as cotton/lycra jersey.

The pattern can be printed at home on A4/legal/letter sized paper. Alternatively there is an A0/A1 file that can be taken to a print shop.

The measurement charts for all MBJM patterns can be found here.

For more information, inspiration and photos please join my Facebook sewing group.

There is also a document in the MBJM Sewing Group ‘Files’ that has the yardage for all MBJM patterns.

Please note that this is listing for a downloadable PDF sewing pattern, not a finished garment.

    I made these leggings for the first time tonight after sewing up a pair of MBJM harems. They are “lightning” quick – under an hour sew from downloading and printing the files and finishing them. I am a beginner too. I made the size 3 long and tight leggings with the yoga band and they fit my daughter perfectly. Every pattern from MBJM is a perfect fit and good sew. Thanks.
