Retro rainbow stripe leggings!






They're made from a cotton jersey that I have a big bolt of. Lots of rainbow stripes in my future!

I tried taking pictures in my living room, but the lighting kinda sucks. I have no problem modeling outside in my alley with a photographer, but posing in front of a tripod is a little bit embarrassing. I'm going to try setting up a backdrop in the other room in my small apartment, and if that doesn't work I'll just have to pose solo in public! Except my tripod was stolen last week...

I fully appreciate the difficulty in linking up those stripes-- as well as the posing in front of a tripod-- these leggings are wonderful:)

Well let me tell you my secret for matching stripes. The legs on my patterns are perfectly symmetrical, so vertical stripes match up perfectly.

The latest breakthrough is that I traced my patterns on heavy clear vinyl, and drew grainlines across the pieces. The lines go vertically and horizontally, so I can always make sure I have the stripes even! It does still take attention in the cutting and sewing, but makes the whole process much faster!

Those leggings are so lovely.  Unfortunately my legs would not look so good in them yet.  Tongue  But yours look stunning.

Nicely done; those are really cute. Also, who steals a tripod? What a jerk.
