Thanks for sharing this divasteph. I replaced your posting with a link to their site because it's a copyright violation to show their pictures and content here without their permission.  Hope ya understand!  Smiley

I have a section about this in the craftster FAQ:


See the question "If I see a project somewhere on the web and it's not my own but I'd like to share it with fellow craftsters, what's the best way to do this?"

I have a passion for dancing. Sadly, I am not a dancer other than my high school's show choir. I would like to start incorporating dance wear into my wardrobe. Does anyone have any ideas? How about homade leg warmers? How should I wear them considering I am a jeans-n-tee shirt girl? Any ideas? i have already seen the seventeen DIY ballet issue too.

Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain. Climb on two by two, to be sure these days continue.

personally as a jeans and tee girl myself...wear them however makes you comfy... unless you want to be a fashion plate.  I'm making a couple of sets to match my favorite sweaters so that I can wear the sweaters, black jeans and my matching leg warmers and not look ultimately homeless...just clueless about fashion Tongue

fun and fun and more fun...play with all the neat stuff... but now I need more room......

For the ones that don't stay put try weaving a little elastic through the top and sew it together or weave some ribbon through the top and tie a pretty bow.  These are uber cute with a cute a-line knee-length skirt and some ballet inspired flats or the ultimate "can't live without 'em shoes": Jack Purcell's

This summer my friend went mad over dancing thing. She sewed little bows to candy coloured tops and stuck little ribbon roses to bobby pins. She also went to our local dance shop and bought a ballerina's wraparound cardigan. She looked very sweet in her little cardie, long skirts, pumps, and rose-encrusted hair.

Wraparound skirts are also worn, and a bra trick we use for underneath bodysuits is to take a pair of tights and cut holes in the legs and one in the neck to make it into a stringy bra, with the elastic under your bustline. The funny thing about ballet is you're usually too hot to wear all that stuff, it's basically for warming up, or you have to wear dresscode. Jazz sneakers are cute and can also be worn around. Take a look at dance catalogs online for ideas.

thanks for that link. I just gave up on a pair of half knitted legwarmers because I didn't like the how the pattern was turning out. Now I'm just going to go out to the garage and cut up all the sleeves off of my old sweaters. Any ideas about with what to do with the sweater remains?

Actually jumpers with the arms cut off, preferable with the neck and waistband cut off too looks rad over a long sleeved t shirt...

I like the frayed look, but so that they don't actually come apart, I use a facing about 1" wide and hand stitch it in. Seriously rad.
