I think most of us have worn leggings at some time in our lives, at least under big shirts. They especially come in handy during the cooler seasons. I wear them under a big men’s button up shirt or long t-shirt and they are so comfy!
Leggings are in fact the smartest thing ever created . We all love wearing our leggings as pants , simply because absolutely nothing is more comfortable, especially in the winter! From time to time, though, being dressed in black each and every single day can get boring. When your leggings rip, or when you get tired of being unable to see the difference between pairs, it’s time for you to think about spicing your leggings up.
I found it very hard to find thick enough and long enough leggings, so I took matters into my own hands and drew up a pattern, after watching this tutorial. It’s a lot easier than it looks if you have sewn anything before!
My exercise activities of choice are biking and yoga. For both, I like a stretchy pant that is very high waisted so there is no chance of them falling down. It can be hard to find leggings with a high waistband, especially since I have quite a long torso to begin with. It is nice to be able to make my own and control the details. I put a band on the top of these pants so they can be worn at full height, or folded over at the top.
A comfy pair of leggings can really make or break your day. Leggings are an amazing trend because they let you wear skirts whenever you want while still avoiding the cold. A pair of bright or floral leggings can turn a drab skirt and top into a fab outfit. These quick and comfy DIY leggings will only take you an evening to complete and you will absolutely wear them out. They can created to be just about any length when you follow this DIY leggings tutorial.
