- Purple Heather Spandex Knit/Jade Green Accent - Designed specifically for yoga and athletic wear, this polyester spandex knit wicks moisture and has excellent recovery so your leggings will last longer and wear better. In a deeply saturated purple and a bright jade green, it will create a unique pair of leggings that you can't buy in stores. Plus, did we mention that the knit is touch-ably soft? If you want to make a brightly colored pair of leggings, this is the fabric for you!
- Black Heavyweight Bamboo Jersey - There's a reason that classic solid colored leggings are so popular. You can pair them with practically anything and use them as both layers under a dress or tunic and as workout clothes. I wanted to go beyond the classic black, so I chose a dark charcoal and paired it with black accents so you can get a traditional look without being completely one color. Plus, this bamboo fabric is soft and breathable and will be a great option whether for yoga or netflix-watching. It's a win-win!
I made the sleeveless dress version of the I Am Cinderella pattern. It went together quickly and easily, just in time for the last days of summer. The fit on the dress is great, and the pineapple print fabric has a beautiful flow to it. I’m looking forward to making another version from this versatile pattern.
My only quibble with the pattern is that the pieces are printed overlapping one another, making it a bit of a challenge to lay out and cut the pattern.
