I’m participating in the Go To Patterns Fall Tour today! I did a little pattern hack to the Go To Leggings, which I have also hacked into jeggings before.
I love this pattern! This time I used a cute floral fabric and added a ruffle to the waist for a little tutu effect. I love this look for babies.
leggings: Go To Leggings hacked with girl charlee fabric
heart onesie: h&m
socks: Old Navy
Cut out pattern pieces normally, except cut off 1″ from the top of the pants. You will also need three rectangles measuring 3.5″ by 18″ for the waistband and ruffle.
Start by making the waistband. Fold one of your rectangles in half and sew the side seam.
Then fold it over and insert elastic. Set aside.
To make the ruffle, place the remaining rectangles on top of each other with right sides together. Sew up both side seams and then fold over, just like the waistband.
Ruffle the top of this strip.Assemble pants according to pattern instructions and pin the ruffle to the top. Baste on.
Pin the waistband on top of the ruffle and sew with right sides together. Flip up and you’re done!
These are adorable! I want some! :D
super cute! I love the little extra flair the ruffle provides!!!
These photos made me laugh. How sweet.
Cute!! I’ve linked to your tutorial over at Craft Gossip:
I know it would be weird…but I can’t help wanting a pair for myself!
My Bean (who is six) has just proclaimed herself a tom boy. She has banned all dresses, any patterned pants, and well, basically anything at all girly. I might cry.
UGhhh. I want to make her funky cute stuff! And now, well now she is making me think outside the box! ;)

oh these are way too cute
These are so adorable. I wonder if my 7 year old would want some :)
you know, I’ve been working out in my head hacking leggings into skirted leggings – my girls aren’t modest in their skirts yet….this the direction I was going but your visuals help cement it together! I’m loving the floral knits too….ah, the 80s. I’m going to go watch Pretty In Pink now…
So adorbs! I have this fabric in the blue ^_^ I made a frilly pair of shorts for Eddie when she was TEENSY like this, which reminds me she needs another pair to fit her now!
