first attempt of making a pair of leggings.
i’m a leggings/stockings/tights person, and i love patterns. so when i found this monochromatic stretch fabric, i decided to try making a pair of leggings for myself.
how happy i was when i found out that it was so easy to make :) next time i see more crazy patterned stretchy fabric, i’ll be sure to make another pair.
special thanks for my friend Suvi for lending me the Ottobre magazine for the pattern!
ps. i was too lazy to sew the hems, so i just left them be.
1m of really stretchy fabric (mine is polyester jersey, i believe..or polyamide),
1m of 15mm wide elastic band (could be less than 1m, didn’t measure it).
