The Mama Jeggings

You should make yourself a pair of jeggings....
They might make you do cartwheels in the middle of the sidewalk, because they are so comfy.
Look Mom... I can do them both ways...
Okay, in all reality they make me walk like a model.
That was a joke. Why didn't the hubby tell me my belt was crooked from cartwheels? He doesn't see these things.
To make these, I used a pair of my own leggings and made 2 identical pattern pieces from them by folding them in half. Very similar to Make It and Love It's baby leggings, just bigger. And I triple stretch stitched these along the seams. Double needle to hem. 1/4'' elastic in the waist. Black denim spandex knit that was found at Mary Jo's Cloth Shop in NC. I got 1 1/2 yards, which was enough for me and Naomi's leggings, I wish I had bought more! These would be awesome in hot pink, don't ya think?
I plan on wearing these all Fall. Yes, I do.
