Q&A

Q. What sizes do the leggings patterns go up to, I’m worried the patterns won’t fit me?

A. One of the patterns we have goes up to a 3XL size which is 56inch hip measurement. We send you the pattern options upon booking but of you’d like a look before you book just drop us a message hello@sewconfident.co.uk

Q. I don’t goto the gym, can I make leggings for everyday wear instead?

A. Of course you can, the only difference is the kind of fabric you might use. With gym clothes you’ll want wicking fabric that draws moisture away from the body but with everyday leggings you can opt for cotton jerseys, lycras or anything with good stretch!

Q. I have never used an overlocker before, will I be able to do this class?

A. As long as you have some sewing experience on a normal sewing machine you don’t have to have experience with the overlocker. We don’t teach you how to thread it in this class but we do teach you how to use it – you will love it!
