Individual length
As different as we all are personally, our legs are also different in length! To make sure we all sew the perfect length of Leslie Pants we have constructed the pattern pieces in adjustable lenghts. That is, you will find a line where you can easily cut open and shorten or lengthen the pattern piece. Our designer Juliana shows you exactly how in the DIY video tutorial for The Leslie Pants.

Size chart for standard sizes XS-XXXL
Find the perfect size for you simply by using our size chart. Measure your chest, waist and hip circumference and check the chart to see which size most closely matches your own measurements. With the Leslie Pants sewing pattern, pay particular attention to the waist and hip measurement. But don’t worry, our Leslie Pants fit many different figure types due to the comfortable elastic waistband.
