One-of-a-Kind Tights

Added Jan 27, 2011

Hamilton, New Ze...






I had some left over material from a top that my mum had made me so I decided to make myself some tights since we had such a large amount left over. I had found the material before I knew what I wanted to do with it, which is why there is so much left over. I really love the print, and I thought they would make some really rad tights for the cooler months, something to put with the plainer items of my wardrobe.

Big credit goes to Carolyn-S whose instructions were super easy to follow and made them such a wizz to make up. The only changes I made to her pattern was the feet, but only because I like my tights footless.

    Ingenious idea! Never would have thought to do this with knit fabric!

    These are just the coolest! Now I know what to do with some 2-way stretch jersey I have that would be way too overwhelming if I made it into a dress. Perfect as tights under a denim skirt or a tunic top – YAY! You and Carolyn-S are very clever ladies.

      It’ll even work with one way stretch I reckon, because my material, even though it stretched both ways, it definitely stretched more one way, and hardly as much the other. Yeah I’ve already worn it twice over my black tunic top!
      Thank you!

    I love the footless version you have. As is the case with many diabetics, I have nerve damage all over the bod. Any pressure on the toes is a real misery. Thanks for the help. Nehmah

      That’s so unfortunate! I’m sorry to hear that. I just find them more comfortable when I can have my feet to myself. You have more room to move about cause your not restricted by the “end” of the tights. You’re welcome.

      Yay! Sometimes it’s hard to find things that fit your niche of style, but that’s why it’s so great to make things!
