Item details

This is a pattern for close-fitting capris or shorts in three lengths with contrast side panels. There’s an integrated pocket at each hip, perfect for gels, keys, or your phone plus an optional padding piece for cyclists wanting some extra comfort on their ride. An elasticated, high-rise waistband means they won’t shift around as you move, either!

Intermediate sewing skills are required for this pattern - some experience with sewing knits is expected. Note that this pattern requires stretch jersey fabric with good recovery - it is drafted with negative ease (the finished garment will be 90% of body measurements)!

1cm (3/8”) seam allowances are included except for the waistband edge, where a 4cm (1 1/2in) elastic allowance is included. A 3cm (1 1/4”) hem allowance is also included for each length.

This pattern is designed and tested to print onto both A4 and US Letter paper, and uses 20 pages for the pattern. A "Print at Copy Shop" version is also included.

I am a long-distance runner and also a sewist - I've long been disappointed by the quality and fit of exercise clothing available on the market, so I've been sewing my own for the past few years - even running two full marathons in my own leggings! All my digital sewing patterns have been road-tested by myself and a team of fellow fit sewists.

My patterns are for personal use only. No commercial use of the products made from this pattern or derivations thereof is allowed. So feel free to make them for yourself, friends, family, etc, but you can't sell products made from my patterns.

Already made a pair for me and one for my boyfriend! They do run a little large, especially since you want them to be tight, but it's easy to make the alterations. Very good pattern, and a great way to make your own one-of-a-kind funky patterned tights.
