Leggings

I made leggings! Being tall, I normally have to buy these at a specialty clothing store. A while back I found knit fabric in the right weight at my local Fabricland. I took the pattern out of a My Image magazine. 
I brought a couple of issues of this magazine online a while back. It's not for sale in Canada, at least not anywhere that I've seen. It's a nice magazine with patterns shown in different fabrics, etc.  

lol my dog Sasha phot bombed. 
It's a pretty basic make, I didn't even glance at the instructions. Instructions are quite brief for the magazine as it covers a few languages as it is a Dutch magazine. 


Burda Magazine 122-10-2014

Wayyyy behind with blogging! Couple of weekends ago I had the urge to trace out some new patterns and traced 3. 

First one that I sewed up was style 122 in  Oct 2014 issue...in fact it was featured on the cover. 
Hmmm not sure why it posted sideways. Burda used a chenille boucle which I've never seen before and couldn't find googling. I used a poly mix boucle from Fabricmart that I purchased earlier this year. 
I made a few changes. Fabric ran short after the plaid matching (which was successful except for one sleeve) so I only used one set of ruffles. Also had to lengthened the torso by 2 inches. I'm quite pleased with this make even though it's different from my usual style.
