So this is my first post since day 21. Holy smokes, WOOLCOME back Sam!
ahah, Syl's been so useful with her tutorials...me not so much. I'm not very good with tutorials, I don't know if I'd be a very good teacher. I've done tutoring and all but who knows if the students walked away confused. =\
Anyways, while Syl was busy playing teacher...I was busy drafting & sewing =)
Good times eh? I think so because I'm pretty happy with the result! I've been wanting to make some leggings with neat panels and colourblocks lately. It's like I just dream of them all the time. Sad. So yeah, I was wondering what would look cute but I didn't want anything too boring or over the top. So I thought that since we're on that whole cross obsession...why not make leggings that look like you just have a big cross on your legs? I was able to start these last night as I listened to the Toronto Maple Leafs lose another game. Then I added the elastic waistband this morning, had Syl help me out with pictures, and I have them posted up for sale!! I thought of several different looks but this is ONE that I really liked. I might try out my other ideas in the near future but for now I have these:
Bamboo Rayon Cross Leggings
I think they're pretty cute. It was a bit difficult for me to figure out the positioning of the cross since we don't really have Judy's/bodyforms to work on. Hello...I'm Judy! *pins fabric onto my own legs* haha anyways...I'm actually content with the positioning and they turned out just the way I was expecting them to! It has the half and half look with the horizontal line intersecting in a great spot. What do you think? Do you like them? Hate them? If any of you have interest in purchasing these amazing leggings: check out Lipgloss & Black & Lipgloss & Black's Etsy I only have one small available but I am planning on making more sizes in the future, or maybe even having them available for custom ordering.
Moving on, outfit sharing time! <3
