DIY Anthropologie Inspired Vegan Leather Pants

I have had my eye on a pair of leather pants for awhile now. Maybe I have been watching too much Sons of Anaracy. Who knows. I have seen vegan leather leggings pop up all over the place. So much that I had to google what the heck vegan leather was just to find out it’s just another term for what we called “pleather” in the 90s. But nonetheless, I had to have a pair. So I was beyond thrilled when I saw that Girl Charlee was now selling STRETCH vegan leather! I would finally get my pair for a DIY bargain vs the $100+ prices I was seeing online., including this pair from Nordstroms that was going for $920! (Ok mind you,  those are real lambskin leather, but still, who pays that much for leather leggings when you can just make your own!)IMG_1208 IMG_1217 For the pattern, I used the Sew Simple Leggings from So Sew Easy Patterns. I have used this pattern twice before (see those) and just love them! But this was my first time using stretch leather. It worked relativity the same. I cut a size 5 and added an extra 1.5 inch to the length. IMG_1219 IMG_1222 IMG_1228 IMG_1229 PANTS: DIY vegan leather leggings.

    This is EXACTLY what I was looking for–DIY “leather” leggings! These will be my second handmade garment using an Indiesew pattern. Did you still use straight pins when making these? I read somewhere you can’t use pins in pleather because it will leave holes–maybe not this fabric since it’s stretch. Can you enlighten me? Thanks!

      hi! so glad you are going to make a pair of leggings. I loooooove mine! Yes I did use pins but instead of using regular quilters pins, I used extra fine point pins (I think Dritz makes them) and they didn’t leave a hole! You can probably find them at your local sewing store or order them online. Good luck! You’ll have to upload your creation to Indiesew afterwards to I can see how they turned out.
