Oh, you all are in luck this week! Another wonderful guest here at The Southern Institute! I’m so happy to welcome Andrea from The Train to Crazy (I’ve ridden that train a time or two… or 50). I found Andrea’s blog a long time ago (I think it was through MADE?) and I was instantly inspired by all of the creativity. This woman has more of it in her little pinky that I’ll ever have, and that is why I’m so excited to have her here today.
Whether you use a pair of preexisting leggings or from a pattern, these are as easy as it gets!
- Leggings (new or from a pattern)
- Adult knee high socks
- Cut the foot off the socks. The top of the socks will become the bottom of the leggings. How much you cut off the sock depends on how long you want the sock part of the legging to be.
- For a legging pattern, lay legging open, right side up. The outside leg seam (if there is one) should be sewn already. Cut the sock up the middle about 4 inches so you can lay the new top open, right side together with legging.
- Use a zig zag stitch (or a serger) to sew sock and legging together. Slightly stretch sock if necessary.
- Sew up the inseam of the legging.
