I don’t really enjoy cake.
The food kind or the sewing kind.
Don’t get me wrong, the perfect kind of cake can be magical and exactly what I need after a super long week.
But my sewing has been quite frosting oriented.
Then I realized I had forgotten my only pair of leggings at home.
I’m not one to wear leggings without a dress or a skirt. For me, I just don’t find them a proper substitute for pants.
But they are so much better for wearing under dresses and stuff than tights, if simply because they don’t pool around my ankles over time.
I got some of the cheapest knit fabric from Walmart, and grabbed my scissors, tape, and elastic to get started.
Then I procrastinated. And continued to procrastinate.
But yesterday I finally made up the pattern. From cutting to sewing it took me no longer than an hour, and the leggings fit me like a glove!
I will cut the strings, though. Oops! But look at the adorable ricrac tag!
I’m very excited, and I’m never planning on buying leggings again!
Cause I know I can just make some wonderful ones!
