In this video tutorial I teach you how to use a pair of leggings you already have to create a pattern that you will then use to create a brand new pair of leggings. We do not need to cut open the existing pair you have. This technique is very simple and great for sewing beginners.

In this DIY leggings tutorial I just show one way of making a pair of stretch pants. There are dozens of different ways to do everything in sewing especially when it comes to garment sewing. I tried to keep this instructional video short, concise and as basic as I could in order to encourage you beginners out there! Making your own clothes doesn't have to take forever and be super complex. Just start small and simple with a project like this one and work your way up to fancier pieces.
