Description

I saw sequin leggings everywhere this last season and I wanted to make some instead of buying a pair that will fall apart in a couple wears. I made these leggings awhile ago and I forgot I made them!!! It’s a little warm to wear stretch velvet/sequin leggings in 100-120 degrees F, but maybe on a cool 90 degree F evening with a breeze might work. Fall/Winter would be better. You could wear these with many different outfits and occasions.

I saw this fabric on sale after the holidays and thought it was perfect!! Not too much sequins and not too much velvet. The pattern the sequins make is pretty cool. I used the pattern from my first pair of leggings I made. I made them cropped with an encased elastic waist.

The bag I have in the photo is such and awesome purse. You can hook your Mp3 or Ipod up to it and press play! It has working speakers. No need to plug in. I was listening to a band called Die Antwoord. They’re awesome and hilarious. Where’s Yolandi when you need her for fashion tips!! The painting behind my leggings in one of the photos is a work in progress by my husband. I had to of course take pics myself with the self timer, sorry if the photos aren’t that great.

Hope you enjoy them. I can’t wait to wear them when it’s cooler out.

Velvet and sequin stretch fabric, thread, no roll elastic.

    Die Antwoord is awesome!!! I love how the quirkier bands are starting to make a name for themselves now. Awesome leggings! Did you get the pattern off burda?
