DIY Leggings and Tunic

Hi Dolls!

Holy Beyoncè. Her new single and video are FIRE. She continues to SLAY. EVERY. TIME. All I kept saying was “Yasssssss Bey” lol.

Anyway, New York was amazing of course. It was a crap ton of work, I’m talking appointment after appointment, followed by going to the hotel rooms to work, and then more appointments. Y’all know I got my Mood fix though! I had about 30min in Mood and it was so inspiring. Just seeing the hustle and bustle, the people shopping for clients, it got me so excited to get back home and work on a few projects I have been slacking on.

I will keep this short and sweet since it’s a casual kinda ‘fit. The leggings are McCalls 6173, and the tunic is my trusty McCalls 6886 modified into a “swing” style top.

I made no changes to the leggings pattern, but in the future I will taper the legs more and take out some of the length.

This outfit is so comfy I have worn it a couple times already. The knit is from The Loft at Michael Levine’s, and it has a really cool textured pattern to it. I can see it being a staple go to since it’s a set and I don’t have to think about mixing and matching if I don’t want to.

And since you often come here for the shoes (oh that’s just me with the shoe hoarding problem? Ok.).. These babies are by Aquatalia. I snagged them for a better than great deal at a sample sale we had earlier in the year. I was helping setup, so I got first pick at what I wanted for…. (Wait for it) five bucks. Yep, these retail for around $395. That’s a steal. I thought they were too cool for me, but I’ve worked them into my wardrobe just fine. That, or I’m equally as cool as the shoes LOL.

I’ll go with the second option. And I will see you all in a few days with a fab new Frankenpattern! You know I love my modifications!!

    1. Hi Tiffany! Thank you for stopping by. I used the bodice of the dress and created a new line for the side seam at an angle out, and then the hem is almost like a half circle shape. So hard to explain I apologize but please feel free to ask more questions!
