Hello everyone, I made leggings and a shirt using jersey knit fabric by EttaVee!!
Yes, I sewed a pair of cute leggings and a shirt for myself, and I’m so excited. Ever since I started sewing bags 4 years ago, I knew I wanted to start making my own clothes. I made one or two things in a class but nothing by myself until now.
These leggings are the first item that I’ve made without the help of a video or a class. I read the pattern and prayed, LOL!
Let’s take a look at my jersey knit leggings and shirt:
Yes!! I love them!
When I saw Riley Blake Designs new jersey knit collection included designs by EttaVee, I knew I had to make something. I follow Jessi (@ettavee) on Instagram and love her painting. They are bright, full of color, and very distinct. You can spot her work anywhere.
This collection includes marble, swirls, flowers, and brush strokes in browns, blues, pinks, black, white, and teals.
This collection has 10 different prints. Perfect for making leggings, shirts, dresses, and more.
Here’s how I create these jersey knit leggings and shirt:

All you have to do is follow the instructions that came with the pattern. It was so easy to follow. The instructions include how to stitch on a sewing machine and serger.
I used my sewing machine since many people do not have a serger.
Gather your supplies and get ready to start sewing.
Starting with the leggings.
Trace your pattern piece and lay it down on the fabric.
Cut out the pattern.
If you’re not using a serger, this is how the stitching should look.
Check out these leggings!
I can’t get enough of these leggings!
Now for the shirt!
Cut out all of your pattern pieces.
Pin each piece according to the pattern and stitch.
Here’s my finished shirt!
Now I have two new garments in my closet that I made myself! The fabric is so soft and fits perfectly.
What do you think? Will you try to make your own jersey knit leggings and shirt? I would love to see them. If not, what would you make with this pretty fabric?
Thanks for stopping by!
