This Christmas I purchased a pair of funky, tribal print leggings for Taylor – unfortunately they wound up running too small and other sizes were back ordered until February. After some some searching I was thrilled to find an Navajo print from Girl Charlee that had the same vibe as the Victoria Secret pair and snagged up some yardage. Once again, I used Jalie’s legging pattern, but opted to go up one size from my previous version since I found my original pair were a bit snug in the upper thighs. Additionally, I added an 1″ to the length to the pattern since I felt like the lengthwise stretch (this material has 4-way stretch) just wasn’t quite enough and was afraid it would wind up being too shortcropped. The end result? Absolutely perfect!
I was looking forward to making a second pair this week using a blackgray cheetah print that I picked up at the same time as the Navajo. Sadly, after washing the material I found my yard shrunk to a measly 33″ – way too short to cut another pair. Boo, there goes my next “Jungle January” project.
