Just make sure when you chop them off to only chop off a tiny bit at a time... starting with just the foot seam.  My sister cut a huge chunk out of hers, because that's what looked right when she had them on with the feet, but when she put them on after they were above the knee because her foot didn't hold them down anymore

You may have already tried this but if you look for them online you might try searching for "leggings" or "capri leggings".  I may be dating myself but thats what they were called 20 years ago rather than footless tights.

I wore so many of these back in the day, man I wish had kept them. Give this a try

It should work for foot less tights. As for knit tights I would try some elastic at the bottom of the leg. I am to much of a tightwad to experiment with five dollar hose/tights so let us all know if it works.

If there's a Torrid in your area, try them!

Or what I did was I went to wal mart, found some of those stretch pants that they seem to think are flattering on big girls, cut them off at the knee, added some lace at the end, and ta-da! they work SO well!

okay, i made leopard leggings a while ago (longer ones, but still what you want)
so you take a pair of pants and lay them atop your stretchy fabric (jersey? or maybe lighter). trace around them, up to the calf area where your leggings would end. then cut about an inch (maybe two, depending on how stretchy the fabric is) inside the lines you traced. sewwwwwwww. :]
obviously, you wouldn't use your loosest pants to trace.  Wink

good luck.

Ha ha!!  Panty hose makers seem to think so Wink

OHHH!!!  I did find some FABULOUS footless pantyhose at Target when I was in the US last week.

I bought these:

(In black)

I wear them under shorter skirts.  The are kind of like spanks but not quite as expensive.  And tougher than regular pantyhose. 

I bought a size 5, the largest size, and should have bought a size smaller.  These are awesome!!!

Now if only they made a shaping cami....
