leggings

9.23.2010

A staple in our house.  When we run out of leggings to wear I know it's been too long since I've done laundry.  And yes, most of the time I'm perfectly happy buying them at target or old navy.  But since I have the pattern and it's kids clothes week, I figured I might as well use up some knits!


I had gotten the polka dots at Hobby Lobby a looong time ago.  It's not really a high quality knit, but it'll work for these four little legs. 




I did choose to make the waist bands taller on both pairs like Ashley suggests, seems to help make them stay put better.  And making these are just why I love my serger that much more.

  1. Cute!!! I'm ready for cool enough weather to be able to throw a pair of leggings on Syd every day. Did you just use regular knits for the waistband or the ribbed stuff? I can't get the ribbed stuff around here unless I cut something up I guess. I did a casing and elastic and would rather skip that next time.

  3. I love those! I also love that your girls are like mine and absolutely can not hold still for a photo. Is the pattern fairly easy? Can you do it if you don't have a serger?

  9. Cute leggings. We must be on the same wavelength. First we both do Oliver + S now both Lil Blue Boo. Just posted some pics of a Sienna dress. I need to make leggings too - just got some pink polka dot knit with that in mind. Too funny.

  10. Love that fabric! We have the same situation with leggings in our house, one can never have too many obviously :) I need to make some more but I always have a fit issue around the top as Hazel likes to push them down under her tummy - no high waists for her! I need to alter the pattern I use properly to reflect that instead of just winging it each time and then having to redo them at least once. :P I like the look of that wide waistband though, I wonder if I could sneak one past Hazel while she wasn't watching...

  15. Leggings are a staple for anyone who has daughters!! Sometimes, I feel like I am old navy's economic stimulus plan. I love your dots and you've reminded me that I really should make my own. Love them!

  19. Those turned out so cute - my girl wear a lot of leggings too... I should make some! Where do you find high quality knits? I have a HL nearby so I tend to go there, but the knits are pretty threadbare.

  22. I love leggings in fall! They're so much easier to find the right fit on little girls than jeans.
