I also made myself some black maternity leggings. I needed some good leggings that were comfortable and thick. I used a free pattern that doesn’t seem to be available anymore. I just lowered the front rise and sewed on a band that goes over my belly. They are quite comfortable, stretchy, and sturdy. I’ve been on the search for a sturdy knit that doesn’t pill which means it can’t have a lot of polyester. There are hardly any Ponte de Roma knits that aren’t 100%. Well on black Friday I got some feathered black Ponte knit from Joann’s that had only 10% polyester. I was very excited and nervous to use it. I made these leggings ind December and after more than weekly wear, I can happily say that these leggings have NOT started pilling. They are fading slightly at the knee, but that doesn’t bother me. I am really happy about this discovery and GOOD Ponte knit fabric.
