Womens and Girls Riding Tights Pattern

#2700: New pattern!  WOMEN”S drawcord elastic waist tights have a regular lower leg and knee patches. WOMEN’S bootcut tights have a wide waistband with elastic and leg patches. Both GIRLS’ versions have a drawcord elastic waist with regular or jod-style lower legs and knee/leg patches. Optional full seat overlay, crotch pad, and belt loop pieces are included. Tights do not have inner leg seams for riding comfort.

Women's hip sizes 32-50

Girls' hip sizes 24-32

STRETCH FABRICS AND FIT

To get a good fitting pair of tights you must consider how much stretch your fabric has, how much recovery (how well the fabric returns to its original shape after stretching it), and the fabric weight. Using thinner fabrics or fabrics with more stretch than the minimum required by the pattern will give you a looser fit. So if you use a fabric with 50% crosswise stretch to make tights that fit quite well, using a thinner fabric with 100% stretch could produce tights that are too loose. Using fabric that is less stretchy or thicker (such as stretch Polartec™) could produce tights that are too tight. If you apply a full seat or crotch pad, this reduces the stretch in those areas so you could need to use a larger size. You also need to consider if you want your garment to be skintight, have a relaxed fit, or be somewhere in between. The women’s tights as designed are quite snug fitting, the girls’ tights less so. If this all sounds quite complicated- don’t worry. One of the benefits of sewing with stretch fabrics is that the stretch makes the fit more forgiving. We just want you to be aware of these issues when choosing fabric and expect some trial and error to get a good fit.

The top of the tights is meant to sit at the natural waist in front and a bit higher in back. The women’s bootcut version sits a little lower in the front.

FINISHED INSEAMS- Please note that the actual inseam measurement when worn can be longer as the fabric stretches. Use these as guidelines only. 

Women’s all sizes: 26” drawcord, 30 1/4” bootcut.

MATERIALS

IMPORTANT! Please read the FITTING section in the instructions before buying fabric. The sizes given are for HIP SIZE. This pattern was designed for a mediumweight spandex-blend knit with at least a 50% stretch both CROSSWISE and LENGTHWISE. This means that a 10” section of fabric will stretch to at least 15”. Using fabrics of different weights or stretch will probably change the fit. Knee patches and full seats should be made from Ultrasuede™ or other synthetic suedes. The crotch padding should be made from Malden Mills Polartec™ fabric. Both girls’ versions use 1 1/4” wide drawcord elastic, as do the women’s regular tights. For the women’s bootcut version with waistband use stiff 2” wide knit elastic- we used Dritz™ brand.
