I was just in American Apparel today, completely appalled at their prices for items that were basically pieces of fabric, so I am 100% admiring this project and I am super tempted to try it myself. You did a great job - I know that if I did this, my zippers would be hideous.

While I agree American Apparel is expensive, you have to remember this is a product that is made completely in the US by workers that are paid a fair working wage.  When big chain stores can offers things so cheap, you really have to think about "why". That's really where the price comes in.  But of course, Kudos for finding them at the thrift store!  always the best option! (Sorry for being preachy.  Just had to throw in my 2 cents, for what it's worth).

Oh, by the way...awesome job!!

They turned out great! It's outrageous to pay so much for a pair of leggings from a store, and yours look just as good if not better.

those look AWESOME. I live in Japan and AA is almost TWICE as expensive as in the US, (as if it wasn't already overpriced!), so I always leave the store heartbroken too.  I might have to try this myself! Actually I have a leggings pattern in one of my books, maybe I'll even give it a shot from scratch if I'm feeling gutsy, lol.

Yours look a million times better than the AA ones do! I work there so I've seen them on many people and like yours a whole lot better Smiley

*covets* You've inspired me. I now want to do something with zippers. I may add them to a pair of jeans. Or a dress. Something. Awesome job by the way. They look very professional and unique! I love them!

This moment's mine you can't have it, It's my turn to burn, and wreak havoc!
