Hey friends! Let’s get started on the construction of our Virginia Leggings, shall we? The first step is to sew the seams, and that includes the crotch seams and inseam (there are no side seams in this pattern!). Super easy, nothing fancy to it. You’ll breeze through it.
These steps are the same for all views, no matter what version you are making, but I’ll be showing you on bike shorts view C since it’s easier to fit in frame for photos. Let’s get started!
Let’s start with the crotch seams. Place the two legging pieces right sides together.
Sew 1/4” (6mm) from the raw edge along the front crotch seam and along the back crotch seam.
Note: You may use either a serger/overlocker or the zig zag stitch on a regular sewing machine, or both!
Now time for the inseam. Open the leggings out so the back crotch seam and front crotch seam are in line, the inseams are lined up and right sides are together.
Sew 1/4” from the raw edge along the inseam of both legs – start at the hemline of one leg, and sew all the way up through the crotch and down the other leg.
Again, you may use either a serger/overlocker or the zig zag stitch on a regular sewing machine, or both.
And that’s it! I told you it was easy. Seams are done!
