McCall's 5394. You may recall I made 2 pairs HERE. These are my "imitation leather" leggings. They're not pleather, but instead a stretchy fabric I found in the dance/activewear section at Jo-Ann's. From a distance it looks like leather but up close you can see all the sparkle in it. I love the effect. And I won't have to worry about sweating too much in these.
(see the mini sparkles in the fabric.)
It was a little cool this morning so I wore my newly sewn ponte skirt with a black top and scarf. Excuse my squinting---think I had too much sun in my eyes. I first made this skirt HERE. Here's an upclose of the fabric.....
Ok, that's just 2 of the 5 pieces I'm working on. I'll post the others later as I wear them. The FEARLESS FEBRUARY Sew-Along (details HERE) is less than a week away and I'm nearly done with my planning. I'm so excited!!! Can't wait to unveil my sewing plans. And I can't wait to see yours. It's not too late to join in if you haven't already!!! Until next time, happy sewing!!!!
I love those leggings! I tried some before, but they did not look nearly as good as those!ReplyDelete
Thanks Vanessa! The pattern is wonderful. I just had to shorten the front crotch and add length to the back for my high rear. I was pleasantly suprised!ReplyDelete
Oh, Victoria, those leggings are lovely! I want to steal your ponte skirt. What a great print. Two really wonderful outfits.ReplyDelete
I love the leggings and the skirt. Beautiful job as always.ReplyDelete
Okay, I'm convinced...gotta stop staring at this pattern and just do it, lol! LOVE your leggings...you look great in them too!ReplyDelete
Very nice outfits Victoria... I have to start sewing...ReplyDelete
Great additions to your wardrobe!ReplyDelete
I may have to go raid our Joanns for that sparkly fabric! And the leggins pattern too! They would be PERFECT for Roller Derby :)ReplyDelete
Way to add to your wardrobe. Looks like quite a warm day in the first pic! The skirt fabric is too live for. I am strongly considering taking on your challenge...and a challenge it would be! Love your new pieces...definitely great wardrobe builders!!ReplyDelete
Very nice leggings and skirt! I love the fabric on both! You look great!ReplyDelete
Holy cow, those top pants are SEXAY! I have a pair of leggings that look just like them (from American Apparel, unfortunately) and I would love to be able to find the fabric to recreate them for myself.ReplyDelete
No joke, I have made a pair of leggings using that same fabric! They even scrunched up at the bottom too! Yours look significantly better than mine did!ReplyDelete
Great classics with some oo la la!ReplyDelete
LOVE those leggings!
I am always so jealous of people who can draft things, as I'm still in the "slave to the pattern" stage. Can't wait to what you come up with!ReplyDelete
You looks fabulous in those leggings. Beautiful work!ReplyDelete
The leggings are awesome! What a great idea to make them out of a less sweaty fabric. And who doesn't need a little sparkle in their lives?ReplyDelete
I made leggings out of that same fabric too, although I don't think I have any pictures (and I only wear them for special occasions). So needless to say, I love it!ReplyDelete
I think I bought that same fabric yesterday for my leggings!! I'm now in love with the dance fabric section at our Joanns! :)ReplyDelete
