leggings.

I’m not a pants person; I live in dresses. Even my pajamas are dresses. But when it’s cold I live in dresses + leggings. True story. So when my friend – the most fabulous Rebecca of OodleBaDoodle – said she was going to teach a leggings class in San Francisco I was all over it!

First, we picked our favorite fabric. I chose a polkadot print with stripes on the opposite side. These galaxy prints though. They might need to be my next project!

We were equipped with a sewing machine, templates, scissors, pins – all the sewing things – plus instructions, demos, and one-on-one time with Rebecca.

I learned to work from a pattern, how to sew knits, and how to add an elastic band!

Pinning the legs…

I didn’t have enough fabric to make full length leggings so I ended up making a looser pajama pant. They are so comfy! Also, I wore them home because, well, I was wearing a short dress…in San Francisco…at night. >o<

Yay for learning new things!

I can’t wait to try making another pair unsupervised. I’ll let you know how it goes. In the meantime, share below on what fun projects you’ve been working on.
