Pattern Review: Dressage Leggings by Jennuine Design

 

I had the pleasure to try the Dressage Leggings by Jennuine Designs for the Designers Pattern Swap series, you can read more about this at Pattern Revolution. As a designer myself this is the first time reviewing someone else sewing pattern and it was fun!


From the gorgeous collection from Jennuine Designs I picked out this pattern because it uses knit, which I have little experience with, and I'm so glad that I did it, I really learned a lot on sewing with knits from the so many tips including in the tutorial, and I even got encouraged to finish some personal projects with knits that had been sitting for a while!
At first I wasn't sure how everything would turn out because my daughter doesn't like wearing (let alone pose with) any kind of pants unless it has a skirt attached to it, but to my surprise she LOVED this leggings and was happy to pose for photos :)




The pattern includes 2 options, regular leggings and the one I sewed up with the inset panels that looks like riding pants.
For me that I'm not used to knits it was so much help that the designer included specific instructions on how to choose the correct fabric, as well as a stretch guide.

Sizing
My daughter wears pants size 7 so I sewed a up a size 7 and the fitting was perfect, they were slightly short but she is a skinny and very tall girl so I should have made them a little longer as I usually do.

Pattern pieces
The pattern is clear, with color and pattern coded lines for each size. There are a lot of pages to print but it is great that the designer included which pages to print for each legging option and the several sizes so you don't need print the whole thing, I loved that!



Tutorial
The instructions are very well explained and uses super clear drawings, I could mostly sew the leggings by looking at the images only!
It includes everything I would think I need to sew up this leggings and when I had any doubt I would find the response right there. It was a great experience and we loved the leggings!
