Crazy Legs


Are you ready for some silly?

No?

Then I advise you to STOP reading now.

I took some of the leftover fabric from the Dress->Skirt, and made some polka dot leggings!

(Hey, I like it when folks stare at my legs rather than higher up.)

I used my TNT Style Arc Laura Legging pattern, which I love! This is a very fast project.

Dancing!

I am wearing this with a purchased jacket, but I quite like to wear it as a dress! It has a great neckline.

I love to wear my wild leggings and my wild skirts. Just last week, I was sporting some wild leggings in the nap pod at work.

What?!?! You don't have a nap pod at work?

Maybe take it up with your management tomorrow.

I am working on a stealth project for April Fool's Day. I hope to have a report on that soon.

I'm also sharing with Patti's Visible Monday!

  2. Ok...inquiring minds want to know...was napping in the pod really better than a good ol' nap on the sofa?

    1. Both work, Lisa. But a nap pod is more private. :D

  4. So you get to take a nap at work? During work hours? Sounds good to me.

    1. The nap pods do get used, Vicki! You reserve one the same as you'd reserve any conference room.

  5. I like the leggings so cool! I've heard about the Google nap pods, isn't that one of the things that attracts people to Google!?!

    1. Thanks, Carolyn! I don't know if the nap pod attracts employees - I didn't know about them before starting there.

  6. Love the leggings but I am dying over the boots. Are they born? Love them

    1. Thanks, Patti! "Are they born?" I'm not sure what you mean, though these boots are "vegan leather" so, in fact, they are not born. ;) They are made by "Wanted" and I wear them frequently. (I just noticed that the heels are starting to show a lot of wear.)

  7. The leggings sticking out of the pod made me think of the witch and Dorothy's house. (No insult intended!).

  8. You do wear leggings well, and that jacket is awesome too... both the collar and the fabulous hemline. Keep having fun, your posts are always a treat :)

  9. Love the dots! I really must make some leggings for this coming winter (southern hemisphere) - currently I own a couple of pairs of very boring plain black RTW ones and I am inspired to try some patterns and bright colours - especially since they are quick to make and easy to wear! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Love the leggings. Three garment lives from one piece of fabric, awesome!

  15. When I first scrolled through, I thought you were re-enacting a scene from the Wizard of Oz where the legs of the witch are sticking out from under the house. So sorry, but I did think it was a cute take on the movie ;)

  23. OMG I would *love* the nap pod! *love* that you reserve it like a conference room. One of my friends starts working there in June...must tell him about this!

    Fun leggings too!

  24. I don't know Shams . . . Such bubbly and outgoing leggings on a shy wall flower like you?

  25. They are the coolest leggings.

  26. I don't know which I want most...dotty leggings or a nap pod. And I really, really want a nap pod!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those are great! I have a pair of black pants with white polka dots (RTW) and they make me so happy whenever I wear them. It looks like yours do the same! Nice job.

  28. Makes me want to try leggings! What other Style Arc patterns do you recommend for pants? I haven't tried any of their patterns.

    1. Thanks, Mary Helen! For a good basic pull-on stretch woven pant, I love the Linda. For a pull-on woven with a more tapered leg, I love the Barb. For a fun, summer, take-it-on-vacation pant, I love the Alexi. But my favorite favorite pant, that I wear ALL the time, is the Cassie. I made a version that is lined with flannel, and I fold it so that flannel shows at the hem - I wear this pant at least once a week.

  29. Those leggings are truly crazy! Love them with almost anything. After all, it's not about the pattern. It's always about the fabric that makes a garment stand out from the rest. Thanks for the whimsy and reminding us to have fun.

  30. I love those leggings! I think I need to head over to Style Arc and order that pattern. Our nap pod at work is called a stall. :)
