Lace Leggings

Good afternoon!! The sun is shining here in Michigan and when the sun is out we have to be happy and having a great day because it doesn't happen too often. I am just dreaming of a little warmer weather just even 50's would be fine. I don't have to wait much longer though because we are heading off to that warmer weather in a week from tomorrow!!! I am so excited. This might be the reason for what I am going to blog about today. Warmer weather means fun clothes that don't have to be as functional....or at least for a LITTLE girl.

I have seen these cute little leggings made out of lace and other materials for little girls all over the place. I finally thought that maybe I should try to make some of my own. I found some lace I had stored away for a special project...or just a project I could use it on. I took an old pair of her little leggings and used them as my pattern. I made sure that when I was cutting the lace out I added 1/4 in or so for the seams. I then sewed the pieces together and added elastic to the top back of the leggings. I didn't go all the way around because they fit her so well in the waist they didn't need to be any more cinched in. When she woke up from her nap I was AMAZED that they fit her so well. I am so excited to have a new little pair of leggings that are fancy, maybe she can wear them for Easter under one of her dresses.

Of course to show the new leggings off we had to pair them with a fancy pair of sandals and an old vintage dress. The dress is actually one that my mom saved that my sisters and I wore back in the day. It's probably about 30 or so years old....depending on who it was made for. It was most likely made by my very talented Mom, she is AMAZING at sewing! She made her own wedding dress that I then wore some 30 years later!!

Did I tell you that my little one LOVES books? Of course she picks the most perfect times to want to sit there and read them. I think she knows exactly what she is doing when her mom takes the camera out. :)

Since the leggings are made out of lace I had to put a little diaper cover over them so you couldn't see the diaper through them. Paired with a little dress though I think it works perfect.

She is looking longingly out the window wishing she could go outside and play. I really wish we could too. Hopefully soon!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!!! I know I am looking forward to it! Until next time...Jessica.
