My Daughter loves the fit of these leggings.
The yoga waist band is soft and comfortable, with NO digging in at the waist! Yeah!

These are currently my go to legging pattern. And it’s awesome that they are free! They are the same quality that you can expect from any Love Notions Pattern. I’ve made these out of nylon/lycra (swimsuit/leotard fabric) a few times too and my daughters use them with their leotards for gymnastics on days when the gym is really cold. While i haven’t done it yet (middle of winter at the moment) I think that by just cutting these shorter they would make great summer wear too.

Easy sew and they look great! Thank you!
Renate (verified owner) –
After 2 tries I found the perfect size for my 5 yr old daughter (tall for her size). She is a 4 in the waist and a 5 in the length. But she doesn’t have stork legs, so I decided to go with the 6 yr size, reduce the length to the 5 yr size and add a waistband for her smaller waist. And they fit like a dream. I found finally the perfect leggings for her.
Laura (verified owner) –
Easy to sew, I have made 2 pairs so far and my daughter loves them.
Amanda (verified owner) –
Got these for free last night and could hardly wait to make them. So I stayed up way later than I should, and my daughter will be going to school in a new pair. So so cute and easy to follow instructions! They fit my daughter perfect too! Just downloaded ldt and can’t wait to create today! Thanks!

Amazing pattern – unbelieable that it’s free!
I’m very much a beginner but the pattern is easy to print, cut and follow and makes me feel like a pro!
It’s great to make cute leggings for my daughter that can co-ordinate with other LN pattern items!
Karine (verified owner) –
Slim fit is perfect!! I love it!!
Patty (verified owner) –
Love these! Not too tight and not too loose on my girls. Thank you!
Barbara (verified owner) –
I started out making a Lil LTD but had a good piece left over. I found a piece of another fabric that matched but wasn’t wide enough. I sewed a two inch wide piece down the center of my skinny piece of fabric then cut the leggings from it. Now my granddaughter has a Lil LTD with matching pink and brown leggings. Cute!
Cassandra (verified owner) –
I love that these include both yoga and elastic waistband options! Thanks for the awesome patterns!!
Alexandria (verified owner) –
These are a favorite at my house! The fit is amazing, and the yoga waist is super comfortable.

this pattern was so easy to follow! i’ve never sewn with knit before, but my daughter now has a great pair of leggings that her mommy made!
Melissa (verified owner) –
Thank you for this awesome free pattern! A definite staple in my little girl’s wardrobe and love the different waistband options. Easy to follow pattern and a great fit!

Thank you, I love this pattern! A staple for your little girl or pre-teen wardrobe. I made so far 5 pairs of legging and I plan of using this pattern again.

Easy sew with good results, great size range, and for free? Doesn’t get any better!

A fantastic pattern and a great way to accustom yourself to LN patterns 🙂

Easy, quick to sew and so cute! I love making these for my friends little girls 🙂
Kara (verified owner) –
Fabulous quick and easy pattern!
-Layered printing is the BOMB. Love love.
-Super easy to tape together.
-Pattern is sized comparable to storebought clothing.
-From printing to handing the leggings to my daughter took less than an hour.
I made a straight 8 for my slimmer girl in a not so stretchy fabric and they fit perfectly. We will definitely use this pattern again.
Suzanne (verified owner) –
This is our go-to pattern for leggings, every time!
Andrea (verified owner) –
These leggings are perfect! I have nieces that are too thin and long legged to wear store leggings. This has given me a very easy way to remedy that problem. I also love the way the layered pattern works. So easy!
Meizhu (verified owner) –
Just discovered Love Notions and I downloaded the leggings immediately. Such an easy sew and great instructions. So glad I found Love Notions!!
angelpal2015 (verified owner) –
Only downloaded this yesterday and sew attached to the skater skirt. Love it! Easy to put together and loving the layers feature too!
tane8876 (verified owner) –
Easy to made and great instructions! I see a lot of this in my DD’s wardrobe!
Mary Ann (verified owner) –
I love these leggings- store bought leggings do not work for my twin granddaughters as they are very thin and have tiny waists- they love leggings made from this pattern
ilovetosew8 (verified owner) –
Made this to go with the skater skirt. Wonderful instructions and fit is spot on! Really love it!
Evelyn (verified owner) –
This is seriously love! Made more than maybe 20 of various sizes so far! Easy sew, too.
These are my go to leggings for my 3 yr old. I love the fit and construction of the Love Notions patterns.
diane (verified owner) –
WARNING!!! – These leggings are addicting!! My Sista turned me on to this pattern months ago. The pattern is so easy to assemble and the leggings so simple to sew. And the directions are easy to understand. They make sewing such a simple pleasure. BUT… You will need something to wear with your leggins… Maybe the Lil LDT?? and…
Danielle Hale (verified owner) –
Thank you so much for the free pattern! These fit true to the measurements and are such an easy sew!
***HIGHLY RECOMMEND*** These leggings are fantastic – awesome fit, easy to print and sew, and they look adorable with an ankle cuff!
mandy.ensign (verified owner) –
I am SO VERY excited try these! Based on all the raving reviews, I’m sure they’ll be fabulous! Thank you so much!
yvonderidder (verified owner) –
Thank you so very much! I was looking for this a long time! This will be my go to pattern!
Cheryl Jezak (verified owner) –
Thank you for the FREE Pattern! I have finally made a pair of these for my granddaughter and it won’t be the last. One downside for us – the ankle was soooooo tight! I used a coverstitch to hem so there was stretch but so awfully tight at the ankle. I will adjust that for the future. LOVE the yoga waistband. 😀
Nikki Howser (verified owner) –
This pattern is fantastic! I whipped up a pair of leggings for my daughter in just a few hours (and that included setting up and figuring out my new sewing machine too!) My daughter was not at home when I decided to make these, and as a result they fit a little too tight. She is 9 1/2 and I made the size 10. I’m going to make the size 12 next. Cannot say enough about the pattern quality. Cutting was a breeze and the instructions were perfect. I’m going to browse here for my next pattern now! I’m hooked!
Keira Wood –
Oh my goodness that is amazing to hear! So happy you found a pattern you love! And you made them while setting up your new machine too? That’s awesome! ~K
Johnie Murphy (verified owner) –
Super easy! Super fast! Cut and serged in record time!
Marla (verified owner) –
I’ve made a few pairs of these for my daughter. They are quick and easy and fit great. Love this pattern!!
Hannah Carriere (verified owner) –
These are so great! Super fast and always fit!
Haruna Harris (verified owner) –
I haven’t made the full length ones yet but made some shorts using this pattern. Such an easy make! It’s great when you want to whip up something quick!
Ronna Plank (verified owner) –
So easy and perfect for everyday wear! I love making these as gifts for the little girls in my life.
mommurri08 (verified owner) –
I use this pattern to remake girls pants from adult leggings. I’ve made so many of these that I’ve lost count. Great pattern!!!
Emily Witter (verified owner) –
This was such a easy pattern to piece and put together. Fit was spot on and very quick sew!
Brianne (verified owner) –
These fit my thin/tall girls great! Easy sew!
Rachel McCarty (verified owner) –
Great pattern! I like that there are no seams on the outside of the legs too!
10identical (verified owner) –
This is probably my most-made pattern to date. It’s one of those items that really is cheaper and easier to make than to buy! I like doing the elastic waistband. To keep them a little looser, I usually cut one size up for my daughter but keep the length at the line for the size she measures.
Robin Paolucci (verified owner) –
Very clear, easy to follow, quick come together pattern. Fit is perfect. I like the choice of either an elastic waist or the yoga waistband!
Anna Harper (verified owner) –
After trying several other legging patterns, these are my definite go to! The fit is great and there isn’t a saggy crotch.
ELiza (verified owner) –
Perfect comfy and easy leggings! They were a staple in my grand daughters wardrobe when she was younger. She wore them with everything, even under her favorite dress, the Mallory!
Hayley Lown (verified owner) –
My niece is very skinny but tall and they have trouble finding pants that will stay up on her. I modified these for her size and they work great!
Whitney Larson (verified owner) –
Fit on these is perfect! What a great free pattern. We have multiple pairs to wear wi the tunics.
Becca Rees (verified owner) –
A great straightforward legging pattern – I have made sizes 3 and 11 for my children and they wear them often. They are a very close fit, as detailed above, so just make sure you have enough stretch in your fabric. Instructions are super clear and easy to follow – perfect for those who are new to sewing.
sschillawski1 (verified owner) –
This pattern made me believe I could see bottoms!

Angela (verified owner) –
I love using this pattern for pj pants for my daughter. Even though they are leggings, they aren’t skin tight so they make comfortable pj leggings, as well as everyday school leggings. I’ve never made the elastic waistband, only the yoga style, which is an easy sew.
Frances Little (verified owner) –
Love, love love this leggings pattern. I have made three for my granddaughter so far, each out of slightly different material (all stretch of course). I made the third pair in 2 hours total. Thank you for a great pattern that has helped me “move the ball” on sewing knits!
Josephine (verified owner) –
this pattern has saved me hundreds of dollars already. why? because I make all of my baby shower gifts out of knit fabric scraps now instead of buying new gifts every time! (sshhh!)
Alicia (verified owner) –
I found out about Love Notions because I was looking for a leggings pattern for my boyfriend’s daughter. I was planning to meet him for the first time in Paris (hadn’t met due to the pandemic) and wanted to bring a gift for his little one. I had just finished making a comfy dress for myself to take along and had some left over fabric. I searched google and found this pattern. It turned out to be a big hit! He was excited and was sure that she would love it. It was a perfect fit! She just turned 3 and a 3T was right on target. The pattern was a quick and easy sew which made it perfect for what I needed! I found others patterns, but this one was free and simple. Since I’ve returned, I’ve signed up and now looking to see what else I want to try. Thanks for helping to make my gift perfect!
Margaret Pargin (verified owner) –
I made 5 pairs of these for my granddaughters. I love how simple they are. Problem is I spend more time setting up my serger than actually sewing! I’m getting better at it though. I learned to put the waistband on with a cover stitch in one step which looks great and saves time. Is there an adult pattern. I’m ready to make a pair for myself! I wish I could post pictures here.
Tessa (verified owner) –
How wonderful to hear! Good idea on the coverstitch finishing. And yes, you could get an adult version similar to the leggins if you use the leggins version of the Resolution Bottoms. If you are looking for something slightly more upscale for a legging (but just as easy) try the Sabrina Slims for a very cute slim fitting pant.
