Well, even though I have to work this whole weekend, I still wanted to get into the spirit. So, what did I do? Obviously I made green leprechaun leggings!
These have been lying in our spare room unfinished for a while, I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do for elastic. Finally, I was folding CLEAN laundry this week and noticed some of J’s holey underwear. At first I though about tossing them, and then I had a great idea-steal them! I cut off about 1 inch of length and then overlapped another inch and they fit pretty good…
pattern is Ooh la legging by papercut patterns.
really quick to whip up, I had some trouble with them though. Mostly user error. The first fabric I had the stretch running the wrong way. So I couldn’t really stretch them around my legs. Well I could, but … SAUSAGE! I should have taken some pics. Those are are now a dog toy.
I should have taken a pic BEFORE I did the alterations on this pair. Totally baggy crotch. Like Ken Doll crotch. Or male ballet dancer. I think actually they would have been OK if I would have just kept going, because that was before adding the elastic. The elastic keeps them up so they aren’t as baggy! Well now they are a bit more low rider. and have a weird “almost-ruche” in the front that came from me trying to get rid of the extra pouch down there…
Not too noticeable in these grainy pics though 🙂
gorgeous day here, its mid 50s and sunny!
Outtake: failed Jumping picture! haha
time for a nap before my big weekend of work! Hope everyone has a happy St. Patrick’s Day! May the luck of the Irish be with you! (and me too!)
