Tutorial Tuesday: Lovely Leggings from Francois et Moi

Girl Charlee New Arrivals are full of fun and unique prints, and with on trend ethnics, florals, mods, and more, there is something for everyone to love. When you find a new fabric you love, a simple go-to sewing project is a fun pair of leggings that you can pair with a basic t-shirt or blouse. For this week's Tutorial Tuesday, we have this very easy-to-follow DIY Patterned Leggings Tutorial from Erin Francois of  Francois et moi that you will want to sew again and again.

Using an old pair of leggings, it is very simple to draft your own pattern (especially since there are no fancy closures or zippers to deal with), and Erin takes you every step of the way. When tracing your old leggings, don't forget to mark a seam allowance about a 1/2" away.
