I mentioned earlier that I am bartending on Christmas Eve and Christmas Night. I also decided that I want to head out in Providence on Friday night. So basically, I need three ‘festive’ outfits for this weekend’s parties.
Today I crafted candy-cane inspired leggies and arm warmers, I am going to pair them with something white and fuzzy and a cute Santa hat. I am also going to make a black-metal inspired Santa outfit for the party on Sunday.
Here are the photos from the accessories I made today (Bring on the Where’s Waldo jokes…!)
Final product ^ now for the quick how-to: (I did not document the process very well, so this is going to be very brief. shoot me an e-mail or comment if you want to chat about any of the steps and I will be more than happy to expand in more detail)
Figure out how long your leg is and how wide you want each of your stripes. My leggies are 25 inches long, so I made them 29 inches of raw fabric to account for the elastic and the hemming. The total diameter of the leggies is 40 inches, they are pretty wide.
Cut your stripes according to your own measurements (you can see mine up there)…. The white stripes are 5 inches wide aside from the top which was 7 to account for the elastic. The red stripes are 3 inches
Sew your stripes together. Take into account the stretch of the fabric.
Once you have the stripes assembled, turn it inside out and sew it together like so. I did not document the elastic part…but its sort of like making a scrunchie. Simple simple!
Armies are very similar, but little!
