I made these fleece legwarmers for my daughter who refuses to wear anything but dresses - It's cold in Canada in the winter!

What I did was measure around her knee, and from her knee to the floor. Then I drew my pattern on a piece of paper. I added an inch to each side at the bottom of the pattern to make a flare at the ankle. Remember to add seam allowance - I keep forgetting and have had to give a few pairs away.

Dresses in Canada? In winter? In Winnipeg (where I live) right now it's -32@! I would laugh at anyone attempting to wear a skirt. Or dress.
Anyway, returning to topic, those are awesomely fab!

Woah, I love those ^__^ I bet your daughter loves them! I mean, any little dress-wearing girl would love them *makes them and randomly gives them to people wearing dresses so they wont be cold ever again XD*

Yup, I added elastic to the top. Its just snug enough to hold them on - the fleece is really stretchy so I made them just big enough to fit her knee.

Pompoms - made out of fake fur would be good too!
