Before we get moving too far into this, I’d like to remind you that we’ve got a sitewide sale happening from now until Saturday, September 12. In addition to that, we’ve got an awesome giveaway happening, with 14 amazing prizes (and 14 amazing prize winners)! You can read all about The Peg Event HERE.
Let’s talk the new Peg Legs – Colorblock Pack, shall we?
The Peg Legs – Colorblock Pack is a special spin on our basic leggings pattern.
This new Colorblock Pack give you a super fun diagonal piece on the thigh for a lot of fun opportunities with different fabric combinations. The diagonal colorblock is also super flattering on the front and back. The waistband is a high waisted/high rise contoured waistband but this time we gave it a little heart/v shaped to the back side to show off those squats you’ve been working on!
The waistband also has a fun diagonal pocket or two to hold your things…because pockets are important! We truly hope everyone enjoys this fun new pack to the Peg Leg collection!
Options include: Shorts (5″ inseam), Bike (just above knee), Capri (calf), 7/8 (above ankle), and ankle lengths. You can choose from plain waistband, 1 pocket or 2 pockets.
Enjoy several videos throughout the tutorial like what fabric suggestions and a complete sew up from start to finish.
They are drafted in adult sizes and are for the full, newer size chart, extending from XXS – Plus 5X! If you haven’t sewn with us in a while, please make sure to check the size charts, as there were slight adjustments made to accommodate the new size range for adults.
**Want to learn more about how to measure yourself for this pattern? We’ve got you covered with an in-depth blog HERE. And in case you’re new to Patterns for Pirates and PDF patterns in general, we have a great blog full of new-user tips HERE to help you get started! As with all of our current releases and updates, the pdfs now include our layers feature and can be found in Letter, A4 and A0 sizes. And for even more helpful fun, we have a *free* printable that you can use to help record your measurements as you take them.

On top of the new release covered above, we also gave an update to our original Peg Legs pattern, as well as the Peg Legs – Add-On Pattern!
What changed? Here are the details:
- We adjusted our size chart and range to match with our updated range. Now Peg Legs can be made for anyone sizes XXS – Plus 5X!
- If you haven’t measured yourself in a while, take some time to do so. It’s healthy when sewing for yourself anyway, because weight and size can fluctuate so much and you want to make the perfect size for yourself. But also, our chart adjusted ever so slightly and you might fit into a different size range now.
- We added a projector file for our friends who like to use their paperless technology.
- There are a few more labels added to the pattern pieces, to help with common questions we’ve seen come up over the years.
Here are some links to all of our FREE leggings patterns, so you can get to sewing!
