Leggings Galore

No, that's not my new 007 code name....that's just what I'm surrounded by!

There's another navy pair that's already in the wash too~
I started making leggings last weekend and can't seem to stop!

I'm not going to model them all for you, leggings are leggings.  Plus, I'm not feeling very 'modelly' today.

I used the same pattern I did for my warm winter leggings I showed you in January.

McCalls 6173
This is an awesome pattern!  The legs only have one inside seam and come together in no time at all.  I'm having fun trying out all different kinds of knit fabrics.

I can't help but remember back to the '80's when we used to wear leggings, only back then they had a little strap of elastic that went under the foot and we called the stirrup pants.  They were all the rage.

Then I realized, every decade has had it's own version of leggings.  Do you remember when you had your first pair?  Leave a comment below~

These are so fun! Yeah, I had some black ones that ended up with a huge hole in them...long story, stupid young-person decision, and I still have the scar to prove it! But it's still all I can think of when 'stirrup pants' come up (which, of course, isn't THAT often...) =D I just love the fabrics you've chosen!

I have that pattern but haven't had a chance to make it yet. But seeing all of yours makes me want to. Super cute!

I'm coming by your blog from Mandy's link up!

I just wanted to say that I have this same pattern and LOVE it! I made some faux leather leggings for my first pair and can't wait to wear them... we've been snowed in the past couple days, but I'll definitely be making more as soon as I can get my hands on some more fabric!

I really love the first pair that you modeled! Super cute.

The Leggings look Great! I want to make some and alter them so that the bottoms can stretch over an ice skate for practice pants.
