Description

i’ve always wanted to have dual-tone tights, so it was about time to make one myself.

i used some sort of acrylic knit fabric, or whatever it was. after i washed these in 40C, the front and back parts were squeezed or intertwined with each other that i had to pull them apart so hard just so i could get my legs in. i guess next time i should only wash these by hand. i got 1,5m of each colour of the fabric, though of course there are plenty of the leftover, since i only used each colour for one side of the tights.

the pattern for the tights was actually the same pattern as the one i used for these leggings. i added the length so that it was far longer than the length of my legs, all the way over my toes. and then when i sewed the inner seams, i made it so that the edges are closed with a sort of a U shape.

Material Notes

2 x around 1.5m of acrylic knit fabric (in 2 different colours in my case),
70cm of 8mm wide elastic band.
