Hi Craftster, wow think it must have been 5 years since I last posted! I'm branching out into the world of dressmaking!

Had a bunch of terrible quality Adidas leggings, the stripes kept coming off and they were pretty see through. Customer service weren't very forthcoming with help or a refund, so voila! A very stripy dress, just in time for a music festival later this week!

No pattern, just tried to piece the legs together keeping the stripes as parallel as possible and then kept trying it on and pinning and nipping.

Hope you like it x

Great way to salvage the leggings and turn them into something more fun--it looks great on you too!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Way to go finding a way to repurpose something that wasn't working for you.
