Pattern Pile, Make it & Love it’s Attached Skirt Leggings…


With Chloe in Gymnastics, I have had the attached skirt leggings by Make it & Love it on my to-do list for a while now.

Regular leggings are fantastic, add a skirt and some sequins to them…


And you have just hit yourself a home run.

I varied from the tutorial in the waistband area. Rather than making a whole new waistband, I cut the skirt and legging fabric with a higher waist and then turned it into the elastic casing. At the time, I thought I was cutting down on prep work. But in retrospect, I wish I had followed her tutorial for the waistband as I think it looks nicer.

All is well though, I made up for it with sequins. Lol.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    Did you use some of that elasticized sequin trim for the sequins? I used some as a waistband over the bodice-skirt seam of a dress a while back, but I couldn’t figure out how to attach it with my machine without crusing up the sequins. If you have any tips, I would love to hear them. Thanks!

      Hi Sarah –
      It was an elasticized sequin that I had been given as a gift. To tell you the truth, I didn’t really think twice about it. Just grabbed a strong needle, and sewed right on through on the sides. Worked like a charm!

      I am new to sequins, only having worked with them twice, but these seemed pretty easy.

      Hope this was of some help. Thanks!
