MyFit Riding Tights
The MyFit Riding Tights by Apostrophe Patterns are the leggings pattern you have been waiting for. With no inside leg seam and a pattern made to your unique measurements, these "sensory leggings" may be the most comfortable leggings you have ever worn.
They are great at preventing chafing during activity or hot weather and for anyone who doesn't like seams rubbing together on the inside of the thighs.
Many kids and adults with heightened sensory awareness may prefer this style as the seams fall on less sensitive areas of the legs.
They are great for riding horses because there is no seam next to the saddle
They may fit better for people who typically use a knock-kneed or full inner thigh adjustment, or people who often get a "v" shaped wrinkle at the front crotch with leggings that have a seamless outer leg, like the MyFit Leggings.
Every sewing pattern from Apostrophe Patterns is created to fit perfectly. No grading between sizes required. How is this done? Well, we ask for your unique measurements. We also find out what kind of fabric you are using and what sewing preferences you have. Then, we take all this information and draw out a pattern which fits you perfectly. All this is done automatically in a matter of seconds using the Pattern Generator. Access does not expire, so you can make as many different pairs of riding tights as you wish.

Hi the instructions for assembling the pieces I found a bit confusing. The photos could have been larger and the parts labelled to avoid confusion. Perhaps better to use non patterned material with just different colours for the pieces to make it easier to follow. Overall I’m happy with the outcome and I’d like to try making the tights with different materials.
I love these tights! They're completely tailored to your body and fits like it. It's an easy sew and such a staple in my wardrobe. Definitely join their Facebook page as they'll help with any fitting issues and also make sure to watch their measuring video because it's key!
I recently found the Duluth Trading company 'Noga' style straight leg pants and wanted to replicate them, because the Duluth pair was too tight through my calfs, and too short. This pattern worked PERFECTLY! I can't wait to go make more pairs! Only adjustment I had to make was shorten the waistband - but I think that's just personal preference!
Apostrophe patterns is the most size-inclusive pattern company I know, with no upper or lower limit for measurements, and this pattern has some great features - no inseam, a variety of pockets, and waistband styles to accomodate many different body shapes, and great support via their FB group.
Full disclosure, I did help test the pattern. most testers needed 1, maybe 2 test fits to get everything fitting right, and many folks made multiple versions that really show off the versatility of the pattern - from maternity leggings, to dress pants, to horseback riding tights!
I used to go to school for riding, training and teaching horses and horseback riding. I WISH I had had this pattern years ago, I would have had a whole closet full of these pants.
