Grease is the world- Night blue lycra leggings

DSCN1315 And here it is, what I made for Sewcialists Grease tribute! In my opinion nothing screams Grease louder than leggings as they remind me of the Olivia Newton John’s iconic final all black outfit! Yes girls, I was inspired by bad Sandy! Thanks for the inspiration! I have seen a lot of these lately, looks like it is a trend which I must say I like! Lycra is a very nice material to use for leggings as it is thick enough to offer some support and make your legs, thighs and butt look as firm as possible while offering lots of comfort and warmth! Love it or hate it, Lycra is also a little shiny, specially on the right side, which makes it ideal even for a night out! I was between pink, mint and blue but as the first two colors are mostly for spring, I chose this amazing night blue shade. The pattern is self drafted and features a little hack! After removing a small piece, I added a small elliptical piece of fabric on the crouch as this is the place where the seams need the most of support. Here are some simple instructions to do that.

Here is an image of your pattern. You need 2 of these to make a pair of leggings.

Cut on the red marks, 2 cm or an inch will be just fine. Now cut a round piece of fabric to fit the hole and sew it.

Here it is how it looks

I added some elastic on the waist, serging it on the fabric and then folding and zig-zaging it, like we usually do for elastic garment waistlines. waist                DSCN1341 What can I say, I simply adore it! I can’t wait to wear it in every possible way as I think it really complements my legs! Today I wore this outfit, matched with my cloudy sky unlined coat and it looked really nice.DSCN1322   The previous couple of weeks I have been sewing a lot and since today was the first day of the week to not rain I took all the pictures. Therefore, the next three days you will see three more finished project posts, two dresses and the pink sweater above. Have a nice weekend!
