The Perfect Leggings Don't Exist!

Updated: Sep 14, 2021

I have tried many many many brands of leggings and I finally found a couple of brands that had beautiful prints, in larger sizes, that were so very comfortable and I thought I'd found the perfect leggings.... until I practiced in them and the high-waisted, guaranteed-to-not-roll-down, yoga band, rolled down! Or slides down! So I got out my trusty sewing machine and started modifying them. Here's my step by step guide.

Step 1: find the side seam and use a quick-unpick or pointy scissors to unpick a bit of the seam on the inside of the leggings. There’s usually two layers of stitching so you might get through the top layer and have to do it again through the second to make a hole. Only unpick enough for your elastic to fit through and try not to go over the top of the band.
