Welcome Fall

It seems as though fall has finally reached Florida, the weather has been a gorgeous 70 something degrees for the past 4 days. I’ve been trying to get things done but it’s been so crazy that I haven’t accomplished much.

The first successful pair of Ninja leggings by 5 out of 4 patterns. These were a complete disaster, the grain was hard to see so I ended up cutting them completely backwards. Then I managed to sew one leg with the wrong sides together, so when I tried to sew them together they didn’t fit. Unpicking serged seams really sucks btw.

Then there are these, same pattern in a denim looking print I got from Purple Seamstress. It was supposed to have 4 way stretch, but it seemed to be more on the bias, so these aren’t quite right either, but they fit ok(ish) so I’ll hang on to them.

Ninja leggings are neat because they have a gusset in the crotch seam, gives you just a tad more room to move around.

Here’s the wrong side, it definitely takes some practice to get everything to line up (and I’m still practicing).

And here’s the right side, you can barely see it. I wasn’t sold on the whole thing the first pair I made, but the more I wear these the more I like it. I see many more of these in my future, now if I could just get mom to wear leggings I’d be set.

I leave you with some pictures of the cats enjoying the weather (and “helping” me sew).
