McCall’s MP239 M7261 Exercise Leggings

Hello sewers!  Thank you for stopping by my blog.
I hope you all had a blessed Christmas.
With the new year just ahead of us,
it’s time when many of us think about starting an exercise routine,
or changing up an existing routine.
I try to exercise throughout the year,
but I am an eclectic exerciser.
To me, that means I play around at many types of exercise.
I get bored easily with the same routine,
so I switch up my exercise routine A LOT.
I also get bored with my exercise clothing.
And it was time for a new pair of leggings,
so I chose McCall’s pattern number 7261.
Just as new exercise routines keep me interested in exercising,
so do new workout clothes.

This is the only pair of leggings I have that are not one solid color.

The panels of color in the mid leg make me happy.
I purchased both fabrics at Joanne.

The black is performance fabric so it helps hold in the jiggle!

The galactic print is a little bit lighter weight spandex knit.
As with all leggings, this is a really quick pattern to sew.
I used my Baby Lock Triumph serger for the entire project.
I was able to neatly sew, trim, and finish the edges of all the inside
seams with just one pass through the serger.
I then used the cover stitch to keep those seams from “rolling” around.
Here’s a close up of the outside and the inside of the garment:

I really like this pattern because the waistband does not have a casing or elastic.
That makes the leggings smoother on the tummy and more comfortable to wear.
Here’s a short video that I made.
It shows a few more details and I also discuss how to choose your size.

How about you?
Do you already have an exercise routine,
or do you plan to start one in the new year?
Thank you for visiting with me today.
I enjoy your company so much.
