Hack your leggings to have no front crotch seam and a long gusset
Recently someone from our testing team asked if we could make a pattern for Leggings with no front crotch seam. It got me thinking- I bet I could hack that. Maybe someday we will get an actual pattern generator for leggings like these but in the meantime- let's see if we can do it together. I used the MyFit Leggings as the base for this hack. I think it could be done with the MyFit Riding Tights too, but that's a hack for another day. I generated and printed a pair of MyFit Leggings custom to my measurements and fabric stretch....
Using the MyFit Sleeper to make Costumes
One of the best things about a sleeper or romper pattern is that it is infinitely customizable. You can add ears, tail, belly “spots”, applique, “ruffs”, spines, foot covers, and more!

It may take a bit of practice but I promise you can make beautiful V-Necks with only a TINY amount of math. We’re going to start by cutting out our shirt. I start...
Hacking Bishop Sleeves onto the MyFit Tee
My vision for the perfect wrap dress needed a fancier sleeve, so I decided to dress up the sleeves. I used my sleeve and cuff pieces from the MyFit tee, then used the slash and spread method to create a beautiful bishop sleeve. You can find the first post where the MyFit Tee gets hacked into a crossover top here. Bishop sleeves are full sleeves that are gathered at the wrist, and typically have some pooling just above the gathers. They are a great way to dress up a pattern and add just a little something extra.We will be adding...
