Description

I love wearing tunics and loose tops, but I prefer to wear tham with skinny legged bottoms to balance out the silhouette. I’m not a massive fan of leggings, and I find my skinny jeans are too restrictive to wear all day. Enter the jeggings! I’m too lazy to make a working fly front, and the fabric didn’t have enough stretch to make an elasticated waistband, so I opted for a concealed side zip. I made non-functioning front and pockets and a fake fly front by topstitching the shape instead. Self adapted pattern.

Material Notes

navy blue stretchy stuff, the same stuff I made my first Ruby shorts from. Miles of topstitching thread that I found in the street once

    They are great, love the idea with the fake front, as it will sit more flat as well. Will see whether I can find some stretch to make something like it for winter. Thanx for posting!

      Many thanks! I took it really slowly as I knew it was going to make or break the project!
