A few weeks back a shared a post about a free legging pattern. If you haven’t snatched that up yet, get the details here in my post. Now Marissa of Laela Jeyne Patterns* has put together the Deluxe Charlotte Leggings and Sweatpants with an entry sale price of $5.50! It has a ton of options and a wide size range to make this a truly loaded pattern. *This post does contain affiliate links.

Let’s talk about numbers for a moment.
Focusing on the leggings style* first: there are 3 waistbands, 5 length options, with or without pockets (front and back), with or without the skirt. There are some issues that will cause combinations to be voided. For example, the elastic waistband doesn’t work with the skirt option. You would need the banded or yoga waistband for that. Now, I was going to get an exact number of possibilities, but I’m realizing this may be too much thinking for yours truly during summer… This math teacher is off the clock, so I hope you will settle for an estimate. Without taking into account the select combos that wont work as just mentioned, you are looking at just under 60 possibilities with just the leggings!
This pattern also includes a whole separate sweatpant style* along with the leggings!! You get both in the one pattern. 😀 They fit looser and are a great style for playwear. You get all the same options, plus you can also add elastic to the hem of all the options too. This looks especially adorable in the shorts as it gives them a nice little bubble look! I personally would not add the skirt to the sweats, so lets get a number without that option. With 3 waistbands, 5 lengths, with/without pockets, 2 hem options gives you another 60 combos!
Let’s recap… that puts you at just under 120 options when you take out the combos that don’t work as mentioned with the skirt and the elastic waist. I have to say, that is a lot of possibilities! Oh my, I just realized I forgot the Jegging style too! This include the pockets plus a faux fly. Add that in to all the legging lengths and band options!!
