I have been trying for weeks without success to get my hands on some black and white leggings for Theo.
I had almost given up when my sister in law spotted this wee number in the pumpkin patch outlet shop on sale for $10.
I figured the fabric and elastic would cost more than that
and a ready to go waistband and pre-sewn hem would make these a breeze to make!
Here's how I did it.
Fold skirt in half, grab a pair of pants that fit and lay them on top for your guide. Allow a 2.5 cm seam allowance on the side not already sewn and cut out your shape.
Separate and sew up each leg
Turn one leg in the right way and leave one inside out.
Tuck the pair thats right side up into the inside out leg.
Pin into place and sew right around
pulling it into a line as you go, it will pop back into
shape when you are done.
Untuck them and trim the excess thread
and watch your sweet baby dance in his gorgeous new pants!
Huge thanks to Jenny over at mend and make new
for the use of her overlocker.
My machine is still in the repair shop.
Must pick it up!
Been making anything lately??
