I made these over the weekend!
I cut out 18 pairs, and I wanted to finish more than just the 5, but I'm glad I found the time, hahaha!






I wish I had more of this fabric!





I do have to say, though, that I love working with Lycra and stretch knits!

I like very much.. Ive been thinking about making my own leggings when it gets a bit cooler. Did you wing it, or use a pattern? How do these fit? They look quite basic (as in, I could do that)

Thank you! Cheesy
I used an old pair of pants as a base pattern(make sure they fit you first, lol), then modified(coughtrialanderrorc ough) it. They fit really well!

Oooooh! Those blue ones with the flowers are gorgeous! And the plaid ones too. I'm so jealous, I'm addicted to leggings Wink Was it hard to work with the stretchy fabric?

Those are awesome, especially in love with the gold ones! Where did you get the fabric at? I have a hard time finding cool stretchy fabrics, except for taking apart clothes from thrift stores.
