Think about the last time you wore a pair of leggings; it might not have been that long ago! Like most women, you probably have several pairs of legwear in different colors and styles. Manila is a unique pair of leggings to add to your collection. The lined petal-cuff adds a special detail that looks great combined with dresses, long shirts, or even made up in an activewear fabric to sport at your next yoga class. These leggings can also serve as comfy loungewear when worn with a soft T-shirt, or a pretty camisole such as Savannah from Issue No. 2 of Seamwork.
Make Manila in a thick ponte or double knit with four-way stretch to create cozy and warm winter legwear, or choose a thinner jersey knit and you'll have a versatile, transitional layering piece. These leggings are easy to sew and gauranteed to take even a rookie sewist less than 3 hours to stitch together. You'll want to make them in several different colors, prints, and fabrics for yourself, or even to give as a gift!
