Shop for leggings fabric to make your perfect pair!
Hey y’all, as promised I have a review of different fabric types you can use to sew leggings. Check out the video below or on YouTube here to see which types I recommend.
Properties of Good Leggings Fabrics
- 4 way stretch. Fabrics that only stretch 2 ways will not be comfortable for such a close fitting garment
- At least some lycra, spandex or elastane content – these fibers help with recovery, so the fabric doesn’t stretch out and sag after wear
- Thick enough not to be see-through when stretched
- Appropriate for use and climate – i.e. don’t use stretch fleece to make leggings for spring in Texas
