Let me start off by saying I was extremely skeptical of this pattern. I thought maybe all the hype was just a fluke or a trend of sorts. But the evidence is clear: this the best looking pair of handmade leggings ever to to be had on my legs! The pattern is Peg Legs by Patterns for Pirates. I decided it was high time I had some more workout clothing and this is, hopefully, my first pair of many.
Sorry - no hubs available for pics today.
I participate in a 'mom group' of sorts, called Hike it Baby. The purpose of Hike it Baby is to get families outside, enjoying nature in hikes and urban strolls. (P.S. - this group is nationwide. You should totally check it out!) It saved my sanity this summer! I require more adult interact than a lot of moms and am happiest when I get out of the house daily. I love getting out in nature but I detest the summer heat in Charleston, so HiB was my motivator to get out and brave the heat.
Wearing a workout outfit more than once before laundry day is a total no-go, so I'm grateful for these new capris in Brushed Poly from Zenith and Quasar (which I purchased on the swap page). I normally hate poly/spandex, but this has wicking properties and is soft and comfortable.
I lengthened the top of the front rise by 3/4" and shortened the capris by about 1 1/2". I pulled my shirt up so you can see just where it falls on me. I sewed everything at a 1/4" seam allowance. I'm super pleased with where the waistband falls and it's the perfect size and I AM IN LOVE, guys!! Join their Facebook page and you will find the amazing promotion going on with these Peg Legs that I can't talk about here.
