Leggings and skirt.

My little guy hasn't been feeling well for the past few days. We stayed in today to rest and our usual playdate didn't come over (Hi Erica!) So, I had some time to make a pattern for the leggings I need for the custom Sonali outfit.  I came up with a one piece pattern, this eliminates the outside leg seam and really gives the appearance of tights. I even had some tiny fold-over-elastic to trim off the waist band and make them fit snugly. The black makes them look a little Hallowe'en-y but Davina's not complaining.

I made a skirt today too, but I'm going to make more with a shorter waist on them. I put an extra band of fabric between the waist band and the skirt to give it some length, but I don't think it needs it at all. The waist ends up sitting too high. I had stitched the box pleats about 3/4" down but I ripped that out too, it's more flowy this way.

Davina is wearing the skirt with the leggings I made and the t-shirt from the recent AG "Vacation Outfit."
She wants everyone to notice that she got her ears pierced while we were in Minneapolis.

I made some chocolate brown leggings today too. I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow, maybe with shoes, but it's supposed to be raining again.
