Leggings are a must-have in every handmade wardrobe as they are both easy to make and can be worn with many different styles and outfits.

In her tutorial, Jaime also lists helpful tips for sewing with knits including the use of a ballpoint needle, hemming suggestions, fabric starch to prevent curling, and many more.
