Buy the Rouleur Leggings sewing pattern from Fehr Trade. These leggings are a great all-rounder for active women! View A features a wide waistband, two generously-sized side pockets, and a curvy cut that matches your muscles. View B replaces the waistband with a halter-style cycling bib, a banded shorts hem, and stretchy cargo pockets. No inseams means there’s less opportunity for chafing no matter what your sport. The leg lengths, waist styles, and pocket types are interchangeable, giving you eight possible combinations to best suit your activity and environment!
Cycling fans may be accustomed to the more common style of Y-back bib shorts, but in practice these can be fiddly to get on and off. The advantage of a halter-style bib short becomes apparent when nature calls and the straps can simply be slipped over the head and down without having to remove your jersey or jacket! No more cold comfort breaks in questionable roadside rests or portaloos. With your Rouleurs it’s easy to stop, go, and get back in the saddle.
