Black Diamond Leggings

09-leggingWhat do you make when you have just enough material left over from your last project to make something else? Why leggings, of course! When I originally saw the black diamond row fabric, I knew that I wanted to make a fun pair to wear this fall\winter (in fact, I’m wearing them today with a black tunic tee and booties), but I also new that it needed to become the Fraser once that pattern was released… so I was thrilled that I had enough left over to make a pair!

For this version, I used my favorite pattern Jalie 2920 (just as an FYI I always go up one size when I make this just because my thighs are ‘thicker’ than what the pattern is graded for). The stretch in this particular print is at the bare minimum required so if in doubt when using this print (or similar from Girl Charlee) go up one size – they are definitely more comfortable.  The best part about making your own leggings? The stripes always match!

    The first thing I noticed was how well the stripes match. That’s the difference between custom and off the rack 🙂 They look great BTW.

      OOOh, good question! If I don’t have a particular project in mind, usually 2 – that is usually enough to work on a lot of projects. If it’s pricey, but I love it and still have to have it, I’ll just get one yard and hope I can find something (like a top) that I can use it with.
