While I already have a few leggings patterns for my girls, I knew I wanted to try the Rocky Shore tights because of the cute options. For the first pair I made the solid lower leg panel, but the peek a boo cutouts will definitely be next!
The Rocky Shore tights are designed with negative ease in the style of performance tights. Waistline options include crossed over yoga band or fold over elastic band. They can be cut to shorts length or kept as full length tights. When making the full length tights, an optional separate lower panel allows for the possibility of colour blocking. It features either a solid panel or 3 peek-a-boo windows along the outseam. The peek-a-boo windows were the inspiration when naming these tights, as they cause one to envision a rock grasped from the shoreline and then sent skipping across the waters surface.

Another great pattern by Sofiona Designs! Love all the options, pattern detail/instructions are perfect and it's so unique.
These pants fit great, and were super fast. I love the detail on the leg, the little peek-a-boo. Looks great and is super easy to do. Great step by step instructions, I love the interactive menu, since I don't always get to sew start to finish in one sitting, it makes it easy to bounce around in the tutorial when I need.
