I sewed with knits and made leggings, both firsts.
See how fast I got through two of my resolutions for 2013? I set the bar low like that. (My excuse – I work FT, have two kids, and sew for fun! Not one of those I-love-a-challenge people. Yet.)
I used this pattern because I wanted some hand holding. It had a lot of great advice in the instructions, and it was written like a blog post. You know what was super easy? Sewing the crotch! Her method was awesome! I started after she went down for a nap and finished when she woke up. THAT is a success in my book!
I really recommend the pattern. It came in 3 months to size 8. Each size was a different color. I taped the pattern to the sliding glass door, put a piece of newspaper on it, and it was easy to tell which line to trace. Now I still have a pretty pattern for next time.
They look a little big because they are. I sized them for late summer/fall.
