Virginia Leggings in Camo

March 31, 2017

Happy Spring!  Or at least in Victoria - I hear Newfoundland is supposed to get pummelled with snow again this weekend...so, yeah, welcome to Canada. 


I wear jeans all winter, especially when it's a little chilly.  So my leggings don't really come out until spring, which made the timing for this month's #sewmystyle perfect!  For Megan Nielsen's Virginia Leggings I made the Natural Waistline rise (ie: high waist), the Petite Inseam (ie: borderline-dwarf-height leg length), and a size Small.  Another pattern where I didn't make any fit modifications, but I DID make the waist band narrower to hug the 1" elastic.  Fabric used was a cotton/lycra so it has decent stretch but the recovery isn't all that great.


The fit in the Virginia Leggings is a lot different from my self-drafted legging pattern I usually use.  These feel more relaxed, and they're looser at the ankle.  At first I almost sewed them tighter at the bottom, but when I tried them on, I kinda liked the look!  So I kept them as-is.  Overall I'm pleased!  By the way - leggings are EASY to sew.  If you don't sew, and you'd like to try it - I completely recommend leggings as one of your first projects.  They're very gratifying!  


Note:  Both tops in these pictures are the Lane Raglan pattern by Hey June Handmade.  My favourite pattern everrrrrrr!

 Another month of #sewmystyle in the books.  Unfortunately I never did get to sewing my Lonetree Jacket this month - life sorta happened - but I am still hoping to get to it soon!  It has the potential to be an awesome spring/transition coat.


I'm already all geared up for next month's #sewmystyle - it's the Bridgetown Backless Dress/Tunic by Sew House 7, and I'm nervous and excited.  Here's hoping it fits and it isn't horrible!  Ha!
