Leggings for Mammy
I made myself some leggings the other week out of material I bought at my local fabric shop in the sale they were having. The material still ended up being £10 a metre, a price I would normally laugh at and move on, but I loved this fabric so much I ended up buying some. I was originally going to make a skirt out of it but was convinced by my friend to make leggings and I have to say, I love them so much. I can definitely wear them much more as leggings than I would've been able to as skirt.
To make them I just traced around a pair of skinny jeans onto the folded material and cut, then stitched them together like in this tutorial. Obviously the only difference was that I had no side seams.
I absolutely love my new leggings so much and I wear them so often. I am really glad I decided to buy the material, even if I still think £10 for one pair of leggings is a ridiculous price :P
