Let me start off by saying that I’m sorry for the lack of a Linky Thursday post this week. Apparently, I’m having trouble adjusting to our new summer schedule so blogging doesn’t seem to happen as often in the mornings. However, today, I drank a large coffee, snagged some quiet time, and wrote. Today, I present the Clara!
Jalie’s original legging (retired in paper, but still available in PDF) has always been my go to pattern. While the other running styles have been fun to make, there are times you just need a good, basic legging. I didn’t think that they could improve upon my favorite, but they did with the Clara – I love it. The Clara has a seamless front (this reduces “irritation”, especially for those who run) with a gusset and an option for a yoga style waistband or a “traditional” elastic waist. There are also 3 lengths included: legging, capri, and short. I opted to go with the legging since when I tested this version, it was freezing out and I needed warmth!
The fit was fantastic and I love the yoga waist – I totally plan on making more. In fact, I have several cut out ready to sew this weekend… I even intend on trying the shorts version, too!
