Named's Sara leggings are so stylish! Named is a pattern company run by two sisters - Saara and Laura - in Finland. Their designs are trendy, and are known for being very well-drafted. Their Sara leggings have exposed zippers at the centre back and at the ankles, as well as slimming front and back seams on the legs. These leggings can also be made as shorts. This pattern has been rated by Named as 'average' in difficulty: this is their 'intermediate' difficulty level. So, this pattern is perfect for intermediate sewers and for experienced beginners looking to learn new skills!
