Lace Leggings

These have got to be the some of the cutest leggings I've seen, and i found them while i was on Pinterest and i couldn't stop thinking about them. There was NO way i was going to pay $19+shipping for these cute things, so you know me, i just made my own how hard can it be? I've made Hailey leggings before just not out of lace.
Found Here

Here is my version

I Chose some lace with little dots on it.

Took a pair of Hailey's stretch pants  lined them up on the fold of the fabric and cut, do this twice so you have two pieces. I referenced THIS tutorial,since it's been awhile since I've made pants/leggings.

When you open up the pieces they should look like this

With right sides together pin from the waistline down to the curve (as shown) and then sew. After i did that i also sewed the waistline as well, leaving an opening for the elastic.

After i did that i turned the leggings right side out and decorated the way i wanted.

Then i turned them right sides together again, pinned and sewed.

Then i inserted the elastic and once i got it all the way through i sewed the ends of the elastic together and sewed the waistline opening closed.

Cuteness? I'd say YES!

It was fun to take pictures of these because they turned out so well, and Hailey was more than willing to give me some poses because she loves to wear what i make her!
