Funky Floral Explosion and Everything That Sparkles Ain’t Gold…It’s Blue!

This is Seamwork’s Aires pattern!  Yes!  I subscribe to Seamwork Mag and when you do, you  will receive 2 credits each month to purchase patterns from the mag!  Cool, huh?!  I’ve always been a fan of Colette patterns, so this was a no-brainer to subscribe to the mag!

My thought/plan for sizing and alterations:  my waist is between XL and 2X, my hips will fit  Large (full tummy, no hips or a$$).  So, I will cut size XL and adjust hips to Large. 


I used the overlock/serger for most of the construction.  


Why I picked this pattern?  Unlike traditional leggings, these have panels in which you can use contrasting fabrics like a mesh, or whatever.  Even if you decide to use main fabric for all panels, it still gives an interesting look!

Well, I did not alter the hips to a large and just cut a straight size XL and they fit me perfectly!


I love them!  (I’m holding the waist, because I need to purchase more elastic for the waistband 😜). 

Happy Sewing!
