    Out of fleece...it was super simple and they look stellar !!!! I seen a thread at craftster.org..and decided to make some for myself..it's great to wear under my skirts...because sometimes i cannot wear pants under the skirt!! yay for leg warmers...!!!!!!!!

    gotta keep those legs warm up here in the north! sounds like a good idea...although i think i'd feel like i was in the 80s again lol

    well i do not like to admitt some of the fashions i wore as a kid in the 80's..but alot of good things came from the 80's...we had the talking heads for example...and leg warmers...:) they really get the job done under those skirts .. at least these are not those ugly scrunchy ones.. :) they are stylish ! like bell bottoms .. literally..it's just the bottom :) hehe...they are fun ! i have another idea to make one but to cut slits in the top of the fleece and to tie in fringe.. i wanna make it look like a boot almost :) yay for sewing...i'm so pleasantly addicted..

    oooh, killer idea. I got a pair of leg/arm warmers for christmas from my secret santa at work, knit ones, I thought I'd hate them but they're really groovy!

    that's a great idea for when pants won't work under a skirt, you're so talented mama!
     
  5. Aww those are so cute! And so sweet looking. They are just too pretty to hide underneath a long skirt :) Nice scarf too! *You Rock*

    Rad ass!!! It's strange I had an obsession with leg warmers last month, but never actually did anything about it, I think I will copy you, those are cool as hell!

    you know that some famous designer is going to steal that idea, and next year there are going to be anorexic models strutting around on the catwalk wearing your idea...

    Up in the hippie communities of Canada all the hip girls wear legwarmers. Go to Nelson or SSI, you'll see. Just cut the sleeves off an ugly sweater that has nice fabric. They are good decoration in the summer too if you make plain old cloth ones that match skirts, if you wanna cover up those furry legs. My legs are xtra furry so I do. :)

    those are supercute rar. my mum got me a pair of black legwarmers in october and i wasn't really thrilled... i haven't worn a pair since '83 but now i can't think of another winter without them they are so great under my jeans. i don't have alot of skirts yet so i can't say how they would be.

    i see alot of girls cutting the arms off sweaters with a thumb hole for fingerless gloves too

    it's like a bizarre triangle. i live 45 min. northwest of the city. whoo trippy.
    it is approximately 11 degrees here in barrington at this moment.

    i love the brown ones. i could really use some for dance class. it's so cold when you walk in and you get so hot wearing pants and dancing..i. i'll be at viva vintage purchasing some of those, like a loser who can't sew.
     
  19. Hey~~I live about 45 min. west of Chicago!!!! I also work up in Arlington Heights~pretty close to you, Snelio (did I spell that right?)

    I love the leg warmers.....very cute!!!
