I've made many pairs of leggings for my girls this winter and I think they would be quite happy to live in them permanently. They look great on their own, with a skirt or with a dress. And they keep those little legs toasty warm.
Did I mention that leggings are super easy to make? I've used the same Burda pattern over and over.
I bought this beautiful spotty soft cord from Craft Mamas to make pants for G (that's a little pocket on the leg there, it's hard to see). I was a little disappointed when she proclaimed that they are "horrible!"
Apparently this is because they're not leggings!
Ah well, lucky she has two little sisters who can grow into them.
