Phresh Jeggings for Girls size 1-14
*This is a PDF DIGITAL DOWNLOAD for a pattern, not an actual garment*
Jeggings are not really a complicated sew. To get a good looking pair of jeans, it is all in the fit and details. You will want to buy jean thread - just trust me and buy it - get two spools or three or a dozen cause you are soon going to be in love. Jean thread is stronger than normal thread, it also has some stretch which means your kiddos are not going to be popping any seams in these fitted jeggings.
When working with jean thread, use it only in your top thread, and make sure you are using a denim needle. I always relax my tension slightly and use a slightly longer than normal stitch.
Topstitching - topstitching is SOOOOOO important to giving jeggings an authentic look, it is where you stitch on top of your seams. We will be topstitching everything - I'm not kidding!
This pattern is designed to be fitted through the hip, thigh and leg - but not as fitted as a cotton lycra legging. I could call them skinny jeans I guess... but I see too many skinny jeans that either look like a regular jean or are so dang tiny that they can't fit on my daughter's booty, and heck - the world was ready for some jeggings ;o)
The length should hit right at the top of your child's foot. Please pay attention to the inseam length in the size chart when determining which length you should cut.
