Buy the Tenacity Leggings sewing pattern from Fehr Trade. These leggings will get you confidently sewing activewear in no time! With no side seam to disrupt a bold print, a wide, high-rise waistband with hidden elastic, and an optional crotch gusset to allow a wide range of movement, you’ll be ready for anything that comes your way. Plus, choose between a wide, wraparound mesh pocket or hidden back pocket and three different lengths – full leggings, capris, or banded biker shorts.

This pattern is suitable for beginners. Some garment sewing experience is expected but no prior stretch or activewear experience is necessary. Start with the basic leggings and add skills with each optional extra:

Beginner: Basic leggings, capris, or shorts (no pockets)
Upskill: Crotch gusset (learn to apply a crotch gusset)
Upskill: Back pocket (learn to work with stretch mesh)
Upskill: Mesh pocket (learn to work with stretch mesh and foldover elastic)
