Lace Leggings – BurdaStyle 06/2012 #124

Inspired by Meg’s paneled leggings and the latest trends, I decided to draft a diagonal patchwork seam/join on the base leggings pattern, drawing an angle ,which when folded in half goes down in the front and rises at the back. I wanted to be resourceful as I had two different knit fabric remnants from a bargain bin sale lol but not enough to use a whole piece for the leggings. So I joined them together for something a bit different, plus they feel nice and cool to wear, as the shimmery mesh is sheer. I added cuffs around the bottom to tie the look together. Both knits only have crosswise stretch, so I made these leggings a few sizes up, and they fit terrifically.
